Jesse Boykins III returned to Philly to perform for a packed out #HeinekenGreenRoom at Silk City. The R&B/Soul singer is one of the most unique acts within today’s industry, carving a lane that only he can fill. JBIII paused after his soundcheck to say a quick hello and took some pictures with fans who showed up early, providing a glimpse of the vibrant and down to earth personality he is well known for.
The night began with an opening set from Mr. Sonny James. As the artist fka Statik set the vibe for the night, the room began to fill up it was noticeable the niche audience that Boykins has. Once Jesse took the stage, he immediately performed one of his biggest hits “Before The Night is Through” and the rest was history. The crowd was in for a soulful, interactive and energetic show. Wearing a sparkly vest, Boykins showed us why he is said to be one of R&B/Soul’s brightest stars.
Hard to believe 2015 is coming to a close… especially considering it’s near 70 degrees outside! Thanks for making such great memories with us in 2015 with Mannie Fresh, Peedi Crakk, Vashtie and DJ Spinna, A$AP Ferg, Jasmine Solano, DJ Maseo, Your Old Droog, Rich Medina, Mr. Sonny James, and Jesse Boykins III.
Make sure you stay tuned to @215mag for all the biggest and best happenings coming your way from Heineken Green Room in 2016.
