The five-time Grammy award winning rock star Michael McDonald and his band are playing in the Funk Zone. He is performing live in the mid-summer blowout, with proceeds going to benefit Youth Interactive, a nonprofit creative entrepreneurship academy based in the Funk Zone with a mission to ignite youth imagination, mentor creativity and help close the opportunity divide.

Joining McDonald is an all-star cast of musicians. The progressive-classical band Ambrosia, Nashville’s own Dylan McDonald and the Avians and talented up-and-comers Yassou Benedict will perform at this once-in-a lifetime benefit.
Plus, if you purchase VIP tickets, part of the package includes an intimate dinner with the stars, private access to the VIP cocktail lounge and an exclusive concert section in the heart of the Funk Zone.
This incredible day of music, community and art is July 27 from noon to 9 p.m. For tickets and more information click here.
