Rockin’ in the rain at Lincoln Center

Despite a steady rain, several dozen people enjoyed an inspired performance by Natural Expression in the Plaza at Lincoln Center Out of Doors, on August 6th, 2011. The set-list included the Twentieth Century Fox Fanfare, “Ice Water,” “Orisha,” Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” and more. Following the performance, audience members flocked to the band, asking for autographs, and buying up all of the group’s CDs. One fan, David, explained that he came out to Lincoln Center because he had so enjoyed seeing the group perform at Celebrate Brooklyn in Prospect Park back in July. “This band plays fun music,” David said.
