Harlan Jefferson | Music at Harry’s Place

June 16, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Music at Harry’s Place is a favorite summertime attraction in Beloit featuring some of the hottest bands around on the stage “Harry’s Place”, the Harry C. Moore Pavilion in Riverside Park. Ten free concerts are offered thanks to our wonderful sponsors! This concert is sponsored by Beloit Health System.

On stage on June 16 is Harlan Jefferson. The Harlan Jefferson Band is a high-energy performance band, specializing in a wide range of music styles from Motown, Jazz, Country, Rock, R&B to Caribbean Island, Reggae. Influenced by blues, jazz, R&B, gospel, and hip hop and instructed by his father A.Z. Jefferson, Jr., Harlan began performing at the age of 10. By the time he was in junior high school and active in bands, he became known locally as the “National Anthem Player,” performing at college, semi- and pro-ball games from Rockford and Chicago up to Milwaukee, Wis., including suburban areas.

A rapper/dj-turned-saxophonist, his reputation came full circle in 2006 with the release of the single “The Chicago Bears Anthem.” Written by Swade, Harlan Jefferson executive produced and promoted the ultra modern rap-with-class that was played in Chicago at one of the Bears games. The track was quickly picked up by DJs, who played it in the streets, in clubs, on the Internet, and on television stations and music and sports radio stations in Rockford, Chicago, and Indiana.
