2pm Gene Washington & M-Tet
Our Do You Know San Jose? series continues, with the SJZ Boombox Truck heading out to the San Jose Flea Market.
Vocalist Gene Washington joins with the instrumental classic soul quartet M-Tet to headline this event. Rooted in the deep sound of ’60s organ-based R&B, made famous by Booker T. & The M.G.’s, The Meters, and Bill Black’s Combo, The M-Tet offers a fresh new take on old-school R&B by incorporating hard hitting beats.
Do You Know San Jose? is our new initiative that explores the music, people and special places of San Jose, spotlighting the important role of live music as a part of its cultural identity. April–October, 2019, 15 events will pop up in every corner of the city featuring a variety of musicians and cultural activities.
