PRINCETON, NJ - The Arts Council of Princeton, in partnership with the Princeton Shopping Center and Edens, presents Ryan Tennis on August 3, at 6 p.m. in the Princeton Shopping Center, 301 North Harrison Street, Princeton, NJ. Listening to Ryan Tennis is like taking a road trip to a new place with an old friend. Songs range from soul-touching acoustic ballads to roots funk and soul to rollicking reggae and afro-Caribbean, but under it, all is a foundation of groove and warmth that keeps you moving forward. Tennis’ sound has drawn comparisons to Paul Simon, Bill Withers, and Ben Harper — surprising likenesses for an all-American college football player turned singer/songwriter. While his disarming lyrics and singable melodies display a rare sensitivity, the intensity of his live performances – solo or backed by the raucous Clubhouse Band – hint at his gridiron past. Concerts will be held rain or shine; bring a lawn chair or blanket. In the case of rain, concerts will be held indoors at the Arts Council’s Pop-Up Studio in the Shopping Center. Ample parking is available at the Princeton Shopping Center. For more information and a full listing of concerts through August 24, 2017, visit artscouncilofprinceton.org or call 609-924-8777.
