    Theme Overview 

    Dancing in Street- A Celebration of Contemporary Music!

    Our 2019 theme is Dancing in the Street: A tribute to Music. We are paying tribute to the rich melanin culture across the board, these artists have given us Jazz, Motown, Samba, Reggae, Funk, Pop and Rock right up to the present day with artists such as Beyoncé.

    Too many to name in one parade, this is but a snapshot of a larger movement that shaped music as a whole. The fashion, dance forms, lifestyle and fight against oppression empowered us all to move to the enchanting sound wave that we call, Music. This is for the trailblazers, rebels and the powerful influences they have had on music today,
    we thank them.
