The lineup this year features new artists.
Guitarist Norman Brown has unveiled the lineup for the second annual Norman Brown’s Summer Storm tour. Brown will be joined by saxophonist Paul Taylor, vocalist Patti Austin and pianist Alex Bugnon. Last year’s inaugural lineup featured Brown, saxophonist Najee and vocalists Peabo Bryson and Brenda Russell.
The tour has so far booked more than 10 cities, beginning May 20th in Newport Beach, Calif., and ending December 31st in Huntington Beach, Calif. There are two dates when Austin will not be performing – on May 20, when she’ll be replaced by Peabo Bryson, and July 19 in Detroit.
