Big World Breaks, led by local drumming powerhouse Aaron Walker-Loud, is a musical force to be reckoned with. The group comes to City Hall’s outdoor plaza, 600 Fourth Ave., for a free, all-ages performance, 12 to 1:30 p.m., Thursday, July 11, kicking off the Seattle Presents free summer concert series. Mayor McGinn and Office of Arts & Culture director Randy Engstrom will give opening remarks. Seattle Presents features eight consecutive weeks of free concerts on Thursdays at City Hall.
Drawing from a wide variety of influences, including Latin, funk, jazz and hip-hop, Big World Breaks synthesizes an eclectic blend of styles into a cohesive and powerful sound. The band has become a formidable force on the Seattle music scene, known for giving lively performances that draw crowds to the dance floor. The in-demand ensemble has backed up well-known artists such as Grammy-nominated singer Wayna, Blue Scholars, Choklate and many more.
Seattle Presents concerts are presented by the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture in partnership with Seattle Parks and Recreation, Metropolitan Improvement District and Triamp Group.
