David Driver & The Riot Squad
SONGS FROM THE STONEWALL JUKEBOX
Join us as we celebrate the soundtrack that would have been playing on the Stonewall jukebox 50 years ago, in that groundbreaking summer of 1969. Join David Driver & The Riot Squad and be prepared to sing along (or dance!) to the songs of Connie Francis, Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Diana Ross & the Supremes, Sly & the Family Stone, Frankie Valli and more.
Symphony Space is proud to mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising and to celebrate the people and events that launched the Gay Rights movement. Symphony Space is a member organization of The Stonewall at 50 Consortium.
