Jayanthi Kyle brings the community  to Live on the Drive!

The annual Northside summer concert series Live on the Drive continues when singer Jayanthi Kyle presents a family-friendly jam on Thursday, July 13, from 6-8 p.m. (rain date July 20). This is the second of three concerts held outdoors this summer on the scenic Victory Memorial Drive at 34th Avenue North, one of the most beautiful concert settings in the city.

Jayanthi Kyle is a local gospel and soul singer. She has sung with multiple bands including Black Audience, Gospel Machine, Romantica, and other Twin Cities groups. Kyle has been an active part of local social justice movements, with her song Hand in Hand becoming an anthem for the movements. Kyle’s beautiful vocals, powerful lyrics, and community focus is welcome addition to our summer on the Northside.

Come with an appetite and enjoy dinner from food vendors Sandy’s and Mama Donato’s Woodfired Pizza, and treat yourself with a gelato from Nona Rosa’s. Stay into the evening for a movie in the park at dusk, featuring Fences, right at the Live on the Drive concert site. Our “green” events feature recycling and composting, diverting 93 percent of materials out of the waste stream in previous years.

Be sure to invite your neighbors and bring your friends to this family-friendly, all-ages event!

Live on the Drive brings people together from across the Northside and throughout the greater Twin Cities to hear extraordinary music and to celebrate summer, good health and Northside city living. For info call 612-588-1155 or visit LiveOnTheDrive.org.
