Urban Sanctuary: Soulful Sunday

Aug 11, Sunday - 10am
Blues/Big Easy Stage

Add some soul to your Summer Fest experience by dropping in on Sunday to Urban Sanctuary, home of Neil MacPherson’s Hammond B3 organ.  The Hammond organ has played a unique role in integrating church and club to bring a vibrant, soulful sound to both.

The quartet includes Neil MacPherson on the organ, Hristo Vitchev on guitar, Dan Robbins on bass, and Mike Shannon on drums. They will be joined by San Jose’s soulful female vocalist, Juanita Harris. A brief introduction will be given by the Bay Area’s champion of the Hammond B3, Pete Fallico.

The hour will feature a full concert experience including the quartet’s unique arrangements of gospel standards as well as jazz hits made popular by the Hammond’s most prolific players.

Following the concert there will be an onsite coffee hour in the Recovery Café.  A special collection will be taken to benefit the programs of Recovery Café. Recovery Cafe San Jose is a healing community for those traumatized by addiction, homelessness, and mental health challenges.
