BLACKAPALOOZA MUSIC TOURS

 

            BLACKAPALOOZA is the multi-act, touring music festival package that featured primarily Alternative R&B music and related African-American arts, crafts and culture patterned after the seventies “MOTOWN REVUE” and the successful alternative music festival, "Lollapalooza". BLACKAPALOOZA began as an idea in 1993 among several groups of black musicians, managers, fans, and supporters in Detroit, Chicago, Newark, NJ, New York City, and Washington, DC who felt that their music had been ignored by club owners; concert promoters; tour operators; record companies; and the music media, so they conceived a national tour that would provide a platform to showcase and highlight the raw musical talent of some of the nation's best alternative black "live" bands and emerging artists who were at the cutting edge of music performance of the day. From 1995 through 2002 the BLACKAPALOOZA played mostly outdoor R & B festivals; alternative Rock; Jazz festivals; other African-American cultural festivals; and special events in the U.S.A. The “1995 through 2002 Summer Tours” all featured some of the top Black bands in the United States "live" on a single stage, plus special guest musical recording artists and dancers performing mainly Alternative R & B, Reggae, Neo-Soul, Afro-Punk, Jazz; Rock, and Hip-Hop music. A major goal of the BLACKAPALOOZA tour was to broaden the musical recognition of these black bands (all of which had fan support and local and regional reputations for their vibrant raw performances, original style and experimental music), and to demonstrate the commercial potential of these artists.

            The very first “BLACKAPALOOZA TOUR” kicked off in June 1995 in Newark, NJ. The 2000 SUMMER FESTIVAL TOUR kicked off in early June 2000 with a lineup that defies conventional labels that which feature some odf the top recording and performing artist of that day. A compilation compact disc and DVD will be released which include new and previously released songs and “live” concert music video performances by some of the bands who performed on BLACKAPALOOZA TOURS from 1995 through 2002. The release date is Spring, 2008.

            The tour was produced and managed by THE KAAMIL GROUP in association with POPPMusic and tour administration and technical support was under the direction of  KAS (Music Producer). Ted Higgin-Botham handled tour Merchandising and Vending.
