There are so many amazing, soulful singers and musicians on this campus, it’s wild that DIY shows at Oberlin skip over the broad R&B genre completely for a scene of majority electronic and punk shows. Let’s revamp the presence of & support experimentalism by students in the r&b/funk/soul genres in the show-going experience in our lives & on our campus!
R&B COVER SHOW
!! LIVE, SPECIALLY PUT TOGETHER BAND !!
