A local music hall is celebrating 15 years of business with a massive lineup of shows throughout the month of February.

Rockwood Music Hall, located at 196 Allen Street, is celebrating their 15th Anniversary with an epic lineup of shows from up and coming artists that have helped shape the hall over the years. Each night in February, multiple performances will take place on all three of their stages, ensuring that each night of their anniversary month is a rockin’ good time.

Though the lineup is already huge, new shows are being added regularly. On Feb. 24, Jon Batiste is joining in on the fun and will play a surprise show at Rockwood Music Hall as a part of the 15th Anniversary celebration. The show will take place on Stage 2 at 11 p.m. 

Batiste first graced the stage at Rockwood Music Hall on Sept. 27, 2010. Widely known for his work as the leader of the band Stay Human and musician & band leader for “The Late Show with Steven Colbert,” Batiste will bring his unique blend of “celestial jazz” to the stage for an unforgettable night. 

Other recently announced additions to the lineup include French-American songwriter Francesca Blanchard on Feb. 19, Kevin Garrett, known for his work on Beyonce’s Lemonade album, on Feb. 22, DeShawn Alexander, on Feb. 27 and Francis Aud on Feb. 29. More special guests will be announced before the month’s end.

Tickets for all of the shows are available at rockwoodmusichall.com. Visit their website to see the complete lineup of shows.
