Jazz Knights to present African American History Month dance

The West Point Band is set to perform a show for African American Heritage Month with guest Bobby Hardin.

WEST POINT – On Sunday, February 10th at 3:00 p.m., the West Point Band’s Jazz Knights will perform "From ‘A’ Train to Soul Train" in celebration of African-American Heritage Month, featuring dance music from the swing era through today. This dance will take place in the newly renovated ballroom of West Point’s historic Cullum Hall, and will feature guest vocalist Bobby Hardin. There will also be free hors d’oeuvres. This performance is free and open to the public, and please also note that this event is accessible only by stairs. There is no handicapped access to this performance.

Bobby Harden, New York City’s finest Soul singing sensation, is thrilling audiences across the planet as lead singer of the world-famous Original Blues Brothers Band. From Morocco to Munich, Tokyo to Toulouse, Hong Kong to his home in New York, Bobby is showing the world what it means to be a true "Soul Man."

As lead singer for The Uptown Horns Revue and elsewhere, Bobby has shared the stage with Soul legends like Solomon Burke, Eddie Floyd, Ben E. King, Lionel Richie, Robert Cray, Delbert McClinton, and Howard Tate. And now Bobby is quickly becoming a Soul legend in his own right.

Whatever the venue or occasion, Bobby is at home on stage. A natural entertainer, his enormous personality immediately connects with his audience. He’s as compelling performing at Lincoln Center or headlining the Calgary Stampede in front of 16,000 people as he is in intimate nightclubs.

Bobby Harden is originally from Youngstown, Ohio, which also gave rise to legends such as O’Jays, Ohio Players, Bootsy Collins, Bobby Womack, and more. There must be something in the water out there! But whatever it is, New York City is now proud to call Bobby Harden its very own "Soul Man in Residence."
