Keith Eric and Waterhouse appear in Summer Series
Back by popular demand, Keith Eric and Waterhouse return to star in Charlottes Web Summer Series at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at the Music Shell in Sinnissippi Park. This third event features reggae, calypso, ska, mento and soca. The music and dance of the Caribbean cultures are an exotic blend of the sounds of Africa, Europe and the indigenous styles of the native islanders. And you cant sit still when Keith Eric and Waterhouse hit the stage!
Named after the Waterhouse neighborhood in Kingston, Jamaica, where Eric grew up, this seven-piece group has been in heavy demand at festivals and clubs ever since they formed in 1984. Theyre also involved in education, having played nearly every grade school in Chicago through the Urban Gateways program. (They had hundreds of kids groovin out of their seats when the Web presented them at Ellis Arts Academy last year!)
Colorful costumes, exotic instruments, vibrant dances, wonderful stories and the music had everyone dancing at Sinnissippi during the summer 99 Web performance. Come and see why Studs Terkel, in a live interview with Keith Eric, exclaimed, This guy is the real thing! Best of all, its free!
