Essence Festival Picks- Day Two

Exactly which organizational genius scheduled The Rebirth Brass Band to overlap with the Soul Rebels ought to be sent back to working small festivals.  Luckily for fans of the quintessential New Orleans street beat, there is a chance to hear both bands since Rebirth plays until a little later.  De La Soul is playing two sets beginning at 8:30 PM.  They set the standard for conscious hip hop back in the day and I expect a great performance.  Alicia Keys (pictured) is pregnant.  But that didn’t stop her from climbing up on her piano during a tribute to Prince at the recent BET Awards.  There’s no stopping this super star.
