The R&B Kickback at SOB’s — Manhattan / Connecticut area
Launched in the Fall of 2018, The R&B Kickback started out as a monthly local event-based in Hartford, CT. Quickly growing from a humble 150 attendees to a number over three times that amount a year and a half later, the coveted party is finally taking its vibes on the road.
Hosting its inaugural New York installment at SOB’s on March 22, this event — in partnership with ThisIsRnB — will include performances from PxRRY, Laeli Roselle and more. Curating the vibes is Power 105.1’s DJ Nyla Symone who will be leading a night of sultry R&B, classic tunes, and — of course — the new jams we can’t resist.
Want to get your music heard? The founders of the event are encouraging new artists to send new music as there are plans for a DMV, ATL and L.A. stop on the tour. For more information, follow @rnbkickback on Instagram and RSVP for the NYC date (March 22) here.
Trust us, you don’t want to miss this one.
