Sarah is best known as a powerful one-third of the groundbreaking group LaBelle, whose hit single "Lady Marmalade" cemented her place in music history. Yet, the Trenton native is also a Grammy Hall of Fame inductee who topped the international dance charts with the classic "Sinner Man" and has collaborated with everyone from Nile Rodgers to Sylvester to The Rolling Stones. Sarah was also the only female member of Keith Richards' super group, The X-Pensive Winos.

Join us for a night of music that has lifted our spirits, shaped our lives and united us over the span of several decades. If you love Trenton, or music, or community, this is not an event you will want to miss! 

 

Murals on Front: Leon Rainbow

 

TDA Brings Art and Joy to Trenton With the Return of Murals on Front Street

Although there will be no live Levitt AMP Trenton Music Series concerts this year, the mural paintings will go on, thanks to funding from the New Jersey Councilon the Arts.

Once again, one of Trenton's most celebrated graffiti artists, Leon "Rain" Rainbow, will be
bringing together an amazing group of artists to repaint panels on Front and
Broad Streets. This annual event, called "Murals on Front Street," will run from July to September, with new murals from 12 artists starting every Thursday.

The first two murals will be created from July 30 to August 2 by Dean
"RAS" Innocenzi and R Fab. RAS, who picked up a can of spray paint in 2007
and never looked back, is best known for his signature style of semi-realism. R Fab
is an experienced self-taught artist who works primarily in aerosols, acrylics and
tattooing, but has experience with a wide variety of mediums.

Murals on Front Street is a project of TDA and the New Jersey Council on the Arts.
