Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park at Manhattan Square, Rochester – NY
From the Producers of the Rochester Lilac Festival,  Five Star Bank Party in the Park, and Midtown Eats, Rochester Events is launching its 2nd year of a new concert series to downtown Rochester: Live at MLK! Presenting incredible talent at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park at Manhattan Square! We are offering both GA and VIP tickets.

Trombone Shorty (born Troy Andrews) is an American musician, producer, actor and philanthropist from New Orleans, Louisiana. He is best known as a trombone and trumpet player but also plays drums, organ, and tuba. He has worked with some of the biggest names in rock, pop, jazz, funk, and hip hop. Andrews began playing trombone at age four, and since 2009 has toured with his own band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.

Gov’t Mule is an American Southern rock jam band, formed in 1994 as a side project of The Allman Brothers Band by guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody. The band released their debut album, Gov’t Mule, in 1995, and have since released an additional nine studio albums, plus numerous EPs and live releases. Gov’t Mule has become a staple act at music festivals across North America, with both its members and frequent guests boasting members from other notable bands, adding various funk and blues rock elements to the band’s sound.

Live at MLK! is wheelchair accessible in that there are no steps to traverse in order to get into or out of the park. However, the majority of the area of Live at MLK! is grass, and it does slope as it gets closer to the stage. Therefore, the closer one gets to the stage, the more up-hill there is to get back to the top. Either entrance (the corner of Court St. and Chestnut St. or the Court St. traffic circle) is handicapped accessible. In addition, our VIP section is 100% ADA compliant, and each bathroom area is equipped with handicap bathrooms.

Patrons are permitted to bring in one sealed bottle of water. All other outside food, drinks, and alcohol are not permitted. There are many food vendors and alcohol booths at the event.
