It was a drizzly, gray, and really quite dreary day today… But regardless of the weather I was pretty excited because it was the Museum Mile Festival, which meant free access to all 9 museums lining the east side of Central Park.
As we were strolling down 5th ave I could’ve sworn that I heard Janelle Monaé playing from a block away. As we curiously drew nearer I could see a crowd amassed in front of a group of about 8 musicians, with instruments ranging from trombones to drums.
I stood soaking in the rain until the end of the performance and forgot that I was even there to tour the famous Solomon R. Guggenheim Museuma.
The guys I saw just a few hours ago are called People’s Champs and least to say I was incredibly blown away, which is why they get this verbose and rambling post dedicated to them.
These guys are talented, unique, and still relatively small. But give them 5 minutes of your time for a quick listen and I guarantee it’ll brighten up your day.
And if you’re really diggin it, go to their website and grab their newly released EP. Cheers.
