The monthly sell-out concert series, ATL Live on the Park, returned to Midtown's Park Tavern restaurant, Tuesday, with seducing performances by Kenny Lattimore, J. Holiday and Ginette Claudette. Dimly lit, under the Tavern's tented canopy, with light rain drizzling just overhead; music lovers indulged in a night of live entertainment, food and libations.
Ginette Claudette, in Atlanta for the first time, opened the night introducing her new music to the audience. With musical influence that she credits to the church, her powerful vocals, searing rendition of Melanie Fiona's "4 AM," and an endearing style, showed the anticipant ATL crowd that she was ready to make her mark as a new artist.
R&B crooner, J. Holiday, serenaded audience members with previous hits such as “Suffocate” and a taste of his new song, "Sign My Name.". He also did a cover by Mint Condition “Pretty Brown Eyes” that stunned the audience.
After a four-year absence from the live stage, Lattimore returned powerfully, performing crowd favorites, and a debut of his new single "Find A Way”.
“Lattimore bought me closer to my mate,” one audience member said.
Marketing coordinator Angela Watts said that people purchase tickets way in advance for the event, which often is sold-out. "They may not even know the performers yet. People just really enjoy the experience and environment.”The next "ATL Live on the Park" series will take place Aug. 12, 2012. www.atlliveonthepark.eventbrite.com
