Pin It

SOUL | Tribute to Motown 

Summer in Rochester is a beautiful, fleeting thing. It's something we all pine for while we're scraping ice off our windshields for six months straight, but once it finally arrives it feels like it's gone in an instant. One of Rochester's annual outdoor concert series, the ROC the Park Urban Music Festival, is stretching out these last few weeks of summer and making them count with a bevy of exciting music. The series' final concert, taking place Saturday, is a tribute to Motown and soul, and promises acts like the always formidable Shine, fan-favorites the Roc City Soul All Stars with the Carlton Wilcox Live Band, Mitty & The Followers, and Will Holton.

Roc the Park Urban Music Festival's Tribute to Motown concert is Saturday, September 3, at Martin Luther King Jr. Park, 353 Court Street. Gates open at 5 p.m., music at 6 p.m. $6; free for kids under 12. 428-6690;
