|R&B Festival at MetroTech 2018|
Legendary Modern Drummer Hall of Fame inductee Bernard Purdie is known for his signature groove, a distinctly infectious rhythm called the Purdie Shuffle. His definitive style has anchored over 3,000 tracks, from his first recordings with King Curtis and Aretha Franklin to later sessions with James Brown, Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Hall & Oates, Al Kooper, Herbie Mann, Steely Dan, Cat Stevens, BB King, and countless others. At MetroTech, Purdie is joined by Texas-raised, Louisiana-based singer Quiana Lynell, jazz and R&B flutist Bobbi Humphrey, and guest artists Rob Paparozzi and Roy Bennett.
