Over four nights, UnderCover Presents pays tribute to two legendary artists, one landmark album, and a seminal studio band. Each unique night showcases four different Bay Area ensembles as they present bold reinterpretations of this iconic music.

The “Genius of Soul” is nearly unsurpassed in his contribution to American music. In over fifty years of writing, performing, and recording, Ray Charles left his indelible mark on rhythm and blues, jazz, soul, rock & roll, and even country. His iconic songs will be made new with the sounds of funk, cumbia, hip-hop, acoustic chamber music, and more. Performances by KATDELIC (featuring former member of Parliament Funkadelic, Ronkat Spearman), the always high-energy Bang Data, and Jazz Mafia spin-off group Cosa Nostra Strings featuring Trance Thompson, The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol, and Noah Kibreab.
