Kicking the summer season into high gear, the Kimmel Center ‘s annual Citibank Summer Solstice Celebration brings an all-day, all-night musical blowout of entertainment from 3pm on Saturday, June 19 until dawn on Sunday, June 20, 2010.

 

The annual community celebration showcases Philly-based talent, rising stars and more during a 15-hour stretch of live entertainment in every corner of the center. Audiences may enjoy family fun activities early on, and then experience an eclectic mix of classical, blues, R&B, jazz, hip-hop, dance, Latin, world music rhythms and DJs spinning music into the night. All for only $10 ($5 for children 12 and under).

 

Some newly added performers are:

 

Stolen Rhodes. Classic rock meets modern sounds, Bruce Springsteen meets Dave Matthews. However you describe it, Delaware Valley band Stolen Rhodes makes music to please almost any crowd. At every show, audiences are guaranteed to see a unique performance by talented musicians playing real instruments, making real music. (11pm, Innovation Studio)

 

Tommy Conwell. With the Young Rumblers in tow, Tommy Conwell took Philadelphia, the United States, and the world by storm in the mid 1980s. While rocking Dick Clark’s The American Music Awards, The Late Show with David Letterman, and stages from Juniata to Japan , Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers were a fixture on Philly radio in the mid 80s and early 90s with hits like “I’m Not Your Man” and “If We Never Meet Again.” When asked what to expect from his current show, Tommy replies, “All killer, no filler. Just the hits, dude.” Don’t miss it! (11:15pm, Verizon Hall)

Sophistafunk. Combining the sounds of live funk, soul, and dance music with the intensity of hip hop and spoken-word poetry, Sophistafunk, a trio of “top notch musicians,” has invented its own original style of cross-genre music. The Syracuse-based band are winners of the 2009 Syracuse Big Break Contest and put on a show that leaves audiences so energized they’re gasping for air. (12:30am, Commonwealth Plaza )
