CORRECTED: Plainfield's first summer concert series closes Thursday with encore performance by FLAVUH

FLAVUH closes Summer Concert series in an encore performance.

CORRECTED: Thursday's FREE concert at City Hall features jazz, soul and R&B performances by FLAVUH, described as "NY/NJ's preeminent neo-soul band," featuring Plainfield's own Wayne Griffin playing classics and hits.

While many communities across the country have free summer concerts, no one can recall a series sponsored by the city in Plainfield.

"The idea was Mayor Adrian Mapp's," said Supervisor of Parks & Recreation Veronica Taylor, "and the series has been instantly popular; we are already making plans for next year."

Using the City Hall Plaza as the venue has several advantages: there is plenty of parking in the City Hall lot, the steps provide a perfect stage for the performers and power and lights are available.

Bring a friend and a couple of chairs and enjoy this final summer evening concert. The program gets under way at 7:00 PM at City Hall Plaza, Watchung Avenue and East 6th Street. Parking available in the lot behind City Hall.
The program goes on, rain or shine.

Apologies to James Gibbs and FLAVUH for the mixup!
