Each November The Sessoms Group along with Voice Distributions presents the annual Classic R&B Weekend. This event is a true musical celebration and one people attend from all over the East Coast and various parts of the world.
Past performers have included Morris Day and The Time,The Ohio Players, Russell Thompkins Jr. and The New Stylistics, The Manhattans, Atlantic Starr, The Delfonics, Blue Magic, Heatwave, Harold Melvin's Blue Notes, Howard Hewett, Evelyn "Champagne" King, Eddie Holman, Kurtis Blow, The Sugar Hill Gang, GQ, Enchantment, Surface, Slave, Alyson Williams, and many others.
This weekend is much more than music, though music plays a huge part in what we do as evidenced by the tremendous sound and lights used for the live concerts that have sold out for the past 7 years.
