Sittin’ In introduces audiences to new cutting-edge artists. It defies genre, often drawing from everything from straight-ahead jazz to freestyle hip hop and all points in between. There’s an unpredictability to the night, which we enthusiastically embrace! Sometimes you’ll experience a finely tuned set and sometimes you can catch a totally improvised show by seven people who have never played together. The awesome creativity, excitement, and quality always shine through in The Kimmel Center’s informal club-like setting, featuring early warm-up sets by some of the hottest DJs around. And, it’s free!
Killiam Shakespeare is the widely lauded experimental collective based in Philadelphia. Led by Steve McKie + Corey Bernhard – both seasoned musicians + producers, whose status as artists are matched only by the caliber of performers with whom they've collaborated – including DJ Jazzy Jeff, Bilal, Snarky Puppy + Ed Sheeran. KS is known for its versatility: They create live beats that seamlessly blend trap-hop, psychedelic soul and other left of center genres.
Be our guest. Come by sometime and see who is Sittin’ In.
