Blankets and lawn chairs are welcome on the terraced lawn. The concerts are free.
Formed in 2012, Bumpin’ The Mango has become Atlanta’s top funk & soul band. Ten of the southeast’s finest musicians make up this musical brotherhood. Wielding a fiery five piece horn section, a rock solid rhythm section, and an incredible lead vocalist. Their music and presence radiates an energy from the stage that lifts the audience out of their seats and pulls them to the dance floor. Influenced by bands such as Tower Of Power, Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, and The Ohio Players, Bumpin’ The Mango’s original music is a melting pot of funk, soul, and R&B. They’ve recently released their debut EP that is creating quite the buzz in the music community.
