First Friday: Hip Hop, Jazz & Storytelling—Part 2 (Green)

April 5 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for Part 2 of our three-part residency with Francis Experience Quartet. Blending rap, poetry and storytelling, this unique performance series is broken into distinct hues and themes to use various artistic mediums and storytelling as a vehicle to engage and bring together disparate audiences with one shared experience. Projected digital imagery from Illuminate SJ Now! provides an immersive visual backdrop to the performance.

The Francis Experience Quartet includes Jonathan Borca and co-founder Gabby Horlick (drums), and standout musicians Bennett Roth (keys and vocals), Miguel “Frunkyman” Leyva (bass) with a special guest appearance by Mark Arroyo on guitar.

Featured poet: Rosanna Alvarez
Doors open at 6:45pm.
