Cheryl Pepsii Riley’s Black Velvet Mondays Experience

Chart-topping R&B vocalist Cheryl Pepsii Riley created a sensation with Black Velvet Mondays, the warm, welcoming weeknight concerts and jam sessions she initially launched in Greenwich Village. Now, she’s bringing it all back home to Brooklyn, the borough where she was born and raised, with a new series serving up free live music.

More than just an open-mic session, the Black Velvet Mondays Experience promotes artistry, music education, and community, and supports personal and creative expression, building confidence and growth among its artists. The showcase is known as a safe, encouraging space  for singers, instrumentalists, dancers, and other performers of all kinds to hone their craft and Trust Their Gifts (the night’s mantra) before making the leap to the big time. You never know what well known or future superstar you might catch.

Audience members can sign up for the open mic upon arrival.
