Friend Sylvia put this note from the ProJO up on Facebook–
Join Mayor Taveras, House Speaker Gordon Fox and Councilman Kevin Jackson on Saturday, April 21 for a free block party and concert to dedicate Olney Street in Providence’s Mount Hope neighborhood as ‘Jeffrey Osborne Way,’ in honor of Jeffrey Osborne, who grew up in Providence and went on to become a superstar pop and R&B recording artist.
Performances by Jeffrey Osborne, MusicOne at the Met, the Boys & Girls Club of Providence, and the RIPO Music School. The dedication will occur in front of Mr. Osborne’s childhood home at the corner of Olney Street and Pratt Street, where Mayor Taveras will unveil a plaque in his honor.
Let’s hope the weather will cooperate– it sounds like a great chance to hear some music.
And speaking of music, I went to buy some coffee at Hope Artiste Village and encountered the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame. Since this March they are off to a great start, and have already put up some great wall art there.
