Great Performances at the Steeple Street Stage. WaterFire kicks off Ignite Providence – a WaterFire initiative to showcase the broad range of creative talents of Rhode Island artists and performers, supported in part by the prestigious national ArtPlace grant. WaterFire will launch Ignite Providence on Saturday, June 8th with the Steeple Street Stage (at the intersection of Steeple and Canal Streets). Including a beer garden and a musical stage, come and drink in the sounds of three great performers, outdoors and underneath the stars, not far from the warmth of the fires.
7:30pm – 11:30pm – Three great Rhode Island bands:
- Opening with The Justin Breault Trio: Lonnie Gasperini on Hammond B3 organ, Eric Cifuentes on Drums, Justin Breault saxophone.
- Followed by guitar virtuoso Tyler-James Kelly, of The Silks, known for his unique finger-picking style and rich, old timey blues.
- The night will be capped off by Original Jelly Roll Soul, a lively New Orleans style jazz band from the southern shores of Rhode Island that will have you dancing and singing along.
