The Okeechobee PoWoW! has arrived! The leader of the evening & a true hip-hop legend, Snoop Dogg, will be performing with an array of special guests that will span the genres of hip-hop, funk and soul. Philadelphia hip-hop heroes and Tonight Show band, The Roots, will be joining the bill along with the Queen of Funk, Chaka Khan. Rounding out the star-studded lineup will be rap’s breakout star Joey Bada$$, Big Gigantic’s saxophonist Dominic Lalli, the exceptionally talented New Orleans’ multi-instrumentalist Trombone Shorty, and jazz great Cory Henry. And in true Okeechobee fashion, other special guests are sure to appear! This promises to be a collaboration unlike any other… truly one of those do-not-miss moments
The Okeechobee PoWoW! has become one of the most exciting nights of music around, creating one of a kind moments like last year’s collaboration with Solange, Michael McDonald, Gallant, Griz & others where they reimagined McDonald and Kenny Loggins hit “What A Fool Believes” and more. At OMF’s inaugural weekend in 2016, Miguel and Win Butler of Arcade Fire, along with John Oates (of Hall & Oates), Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Kamasi Washington created their own versions of David Bowie’s “Fame” and Drake’s “Hotline Bling”.
