Fresh Beat Band Hits New York City

I have been pretty tight-lipped about this one in my house.  If my daughter asks me one more when Fresh Beat Band is coming to New York, I'm going to have to blow my cover.  Truth is, they are scheduled to perform at Arthur Ashe Day this Saturday, August 27th at 10:15 a.m.
The FBB will perform live and for FREE!  Additional performers include up and coming Girls Nite Out, Action Item, and Jacob Latimore.  This performance is not to be confused with the ticketed performances listed here.  See you there!
