Amherst Business Improvement District added an event.

This finale concert of our summer seasons features two incredible local treasures. The Alchemystics plays modern-day roots music with global appeal – an alchemy of ancient musical traditions; intricate, intelligent wordplay; elementally raw soul; irresistible hooks; deep, driving rhythms; and old-school vocal harmonies – fired by the Alchemystic’s unique blend of intensity, passion, and sheer artistic chemistry into a powerful, contemporary, and unmistakable sound.
Shokazoba performs top quality, high energy dance music designed to move your feet, inspire your mind, and stimulate your soul. They aim to inspire greater human awareness through original, conscious, funky fusion jazz with topically relevant lyrics.
