Dew Drop Inn Revival in association with the Trombone Shorty Foundation presents:

THE SUN RA ARKESTRA 
Groove City 2024
Night VI
ONE NIGHT ONLY! 
 

Sun Ra founded the Sun Ra Arkestra in Chicago in the mid-1950s. The late musician Sun Ra was among the earliest pioneers of the synthesizer and the free jazz revolution of 1960s. He sent a strong spiritual and musical message to his Arkestra wanting them to help make the universe better through positive vibrations and music. 

The Sun Ra Arkestra are known worldwide for their live shows that combine big-band swing, space-age jazz, singing, dancing, chanting and Afro-pageantry. The Arkestra has been at the forefront of Afro-futurism since their inception.  

The Arkestra have recorded more than 100 albums, but it wasn't until 2020 that their album "Swirling" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Big Band Jazz  Ensemble Recording. 

After more than 60 years the band continue to travel the globe on their Inter-Galactic tour. Recent highlights include shows at the Kennedy Center with Solange, The Berlin Opera House, the Burlington Jazz Festival and a New York City show at Radio City Music Hall. Active as ever, the Sun Ra Arkestra 2023 schedule included the Big Ears Festival, four nights at SF Jazz, a US West Coast Tour, a Canadian tour, and a tour of Italy. 

“The possible has been tried and failed. Now it’s time to try the impossible.” ~Sun Ra
