2018 is a special year. It marks the 10th Anniversary of RhythmAndSoulRadio.com.
Created as an extension of the weekly Rhythm And Soul Radio Show that aired (and still airs) weekly on New York's Harlem Community Radio, WHCR 90.3FM RhythmAndSoulRadio.com has grown into a top internet radio station that serves as a home for independent artists.
We are very proud and thankful to be able to last for 10 years and look to continue on for another 10, 20, 30+ years sharing music and information and being urban eclectic internet radio. Celebrating 10 years as an independent internet radio station is a big deal (at least we think it is) so we need to do something big to celebrate. So for our celebration we're headed to Austin, TX for the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival! We'll be there broadcasting live from events, we'll be presenting the live performance of House Unplugged with Dawn Tallman and Friends and we'll be participating in The Curly Girl Picnic!
The South by Southwest Festival celebrates the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW is the premier destination for discovery.
RhythmAndSoulRadio will be on hand broadcasting live to allow those around the world who can't make it to Austin, TX to experience SXSW in person to still hear some of the activity taking place by listening to RhythmAndSoulRadio.com.
In addition to the live broadcasts there will be two special events during SXSW that we will be producing and participating in...
House Unplugged with Dawn Tallman & Friends is a show that takes House Music apart with live musicians to explore its many roots, taking the audience on a journey of musical genres from Soul to Funk to Disco to Gospel, Jazz and even Latin Jazz. Last year we produced the show House Unplugged with Dawn Tallman & Friends at the Apollo Music Cafe at the world famous Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY. The show was an enormous success playing to a packed sold out audience. Dawn Tallman is an award winning and Billboard Dance Chart topping artist. Dawn scored a #1 international hit with “Feel The Vibe” with Bob Sinclair and a Top 10 hit with “Teardrops” in 2015 and 2016 respectively. We are pleased to be taking the show to Austin,Tx on March 14th to perform during the SXSW Festival at Dozen Street, a new soulful lounge located in the African American Historic District of Austin, Tx.
On March 17th we are honored to participate in the first Curly Girl Picnic SXSW Edition presented by The Co Report. The Co Report will host their first ever natural hair picnic during SXSW at Huston Tillotson, a Historical Black College & University, from 9 am – 5 pm. This event will feature a majority of Black owned brands in cosmetics, natural hair care, skin care, and various other goods and services. The Curly Girl Picnic is expected to host over 1500 women and RhythmAndSoulRadio.com will be there broadcasting live and providing music, courtesy of DJ BlackIcon1, for this special event.
In addition to those two events RhythmAndSoulRadio.com will be around and about SXSW interviewing artists, producers, filmmakers and more providing continual updates on the activity of SXSW. The dates are March 11 - 18, 2018. We invite you to join us. Sponsorships are available.
