Bring a bit of “Swooz” to your front door with rapper/singer Al Rogers Jr. along with trumpeter Brandon Woody and drummer Josh Stokes. 

 

Al Rogers Jr. is a rapper, singer, and songwriter from Baltimore, MD. Al was a poet before he became passionate about creating music. Inspired by different genres of music, his style is very diverse and endearing, Al’s music reflects the duality of his city and upbringing. He has become one of the most impactful performer's coming out of Baltimore, mixing a background in dance with an innate knack for crowd control and participation. He’s also frontman for Da Lor Band, whether with his band or a DJ, the live shows are an experience! 

If you ever get a chance to experience one of his live shows you'll notice him using the word 'Swooz' which is a mantra and a way he aspires to live daily. "Swooz is a way of life it's defined as expressing compassion, benevolence, love, and gratitude."

Al has performed at Baltimore Museum of Art, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and graced the stage of Artscape and AFRAM. He’s been featured in the New York Times, Vice, Pitchfork, and many other publications.

About Sidewalk Serenades:

Creative Alliance believes that a Baltimore without live performances is a Baltimore without joy – and we won’t stand for that!

As you likely know, working musicians, dancers, magicians, burlesque performers, aerialists, and other performance-based artists have had their gigs and their livelihoods cancelled for the foreseeable future. Join Creative Alliance in creating performance opportunities for these artists throughout Baltimore while simultaneously respecting the need for everyone to keep a safe distance.

Creative Alliance is once again offering you the opportunity to have a short performance of two to three songs delivered to the front of your home (or a friend/loved one’s home) for a small fee.

Performers will come to the confirmed address, text the residence upon arrival and, like a burst of sunlight through these gray skies, share their talents from the sidewalk. The donations from each of these performance events will be shared between the artist and Creative Alliance to help keep the arts alive and thriving in Baltimore!

 

The Basics:

  • Performers will come to the front of your (or loved ones) home and will perform for 15 or so minutes.
  • Concerts will be scheduled on the hour, and you can purchase them on the Creative Alliance website.
  • Ticket sales end when all slots are booked OR 8am day of the concerts.
  • If there is poor weather, concerts will be rescheduled to the next nice day, if possible

 

What if I want to purchase a concert for someone else??? 

  • Just leave the name, address, and cell number of the person the concert is for in the COMMENTS Section when you check out online.

 

What if I live in an apartment?

  • Performers will not enter an apartment or shared home but can perform in front of the complex or on the side of a building. This situation is better suited for louder musicians (horn players, trios etc).

 

What if I would like a performance but just can't afford it at this time?

While there is a fee per concert, there are opportunities for those without the means to still enjoy some live music. Musicians have been asking to do additional community performances for free. If you are in need, know someone in need, or work at an organization of essential workers (a hospital, perhaps) and have a safe space for a performance to occur, reach out to ari@creativealliance.org to coordinate.
