Book It to Summerfest

Book It to Summerfest

Memphis soul legend Booker T. Jones headlines this year's Route 66 Summerfest, Saturday July 16th in Nob Hill.

M. BRIANNA STALLINGS

Plenty of tunes encapsulate the scorching heat we’re wading through in Burque this summer: The Lovin’ Spoonful’s “Summer in the City,” Eddie Cochran’s “Summertime Blues” and “Cruel Summer” by Bananarama. But why not listen to something super-cool, like good old-fashioned Memphis soul from Stax Records legend Booker T. Jones?

Best known as frontman for Booker T. & the M.G.s (“Green Onions,” “Melting Pot”), Jones presents “A Stax Revue and a Journey Thru Soul, Blues, and R&B” as headliner of 2016’s Route 66 Summerfest on Saturday, July 16, from 2 to 10:30 p.m. in Nob Hill on Central Avenue.

Rockin’ New Orleans soul songstress Nikki Hill is also scheduled to perform, as are 15 other local bands and artists. Summerfest also boasts a car show, kids’ activities, food trucks, the Cork & Tap Beer and Wine Garden and much more.

Route 66 Summerfest is presented as part of the 11th Annual New Mexico Jazz Festival by The City of Albuquerque and Nob Hill Main Street. For more info on this free, all-ages fest, call 311 or visit outpostspace.org/pages/event/247675
