Regarded as one of the most prolific and important Memphis musicians of his generation, twelve-time GRAMMY nominee and GRAMMY-winning Memphian Kirk Whalum will host Kafé Kirk, a new monthly series, at Crosstown Theater at Crosstown Concourse on Sunday, June 2 at 6 pm. Kafé Kirk is a concert with musical collaborations between Whalum and his special guests as well as on-stage interviews between the musicians about music, life, and spirituality.

The kick-off event June 2 will feature Whalum alongside his Memphis-born nephews: vocalist, actor, and STAX Music Academy professor Kortland Whalum; and trombonist Kameron Whalum, a member of Bruno Mars’ band who is featured on “Uptown Funk” and who has performed on MTV’s Video Music Awards, The GRAMMYs, the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and Saturday Night Live. The second iteration will be July 7 with Whalum and two-time GRAMMY-nominated, gold-selling singer-songwriter Jonathan Butler.

Around each event, guests will also do a workshop with a local youth program.

Kafé Kirk specializes in the soul connection. A liminal space where extraordinary music seasons the atmosphere, and ‘ain’t nobody scared’ to celebrate our mutual connections: horizontal — with each other, across every boundary, and vertical — with The Divine,” says Whalum of the new series.

WHAT: Crosstown Theater kick-off of Kafé Kirk series
WHEN: Sunday, June 2, 2019, 6 pm
