Getting Groovy With The Pan Am Games

by amc

Soulsters, look who’s back!

I know I’ve been away for a minute, but life threw some curve balls and punches that I had to deal with accordingly. Y’all know how that goes. However, summer is here! I’ve finally moved into my new home (and I’m loving it!) and I’m slowly getting back into the mixing, mingling and event participation that I love so much. And let’s not forget the music (never that!). So with that being said, let’s jump into the vibes of the Pan Am Games that has fallen upon Toronto!

Pan Am fever has hit Toronto with plenty of fanfare and has given the city a little injection of energy and good vibes all around. Aside from the obvious competition and display of sportsmanship that the games have to offer, it is nice to see the amazing schedule of sights and sounds that will be taking place around the city. Yes, you read right – the sounds! Have you taken a look at the musical goodness coming your way, folks? The Pan Am schedule has a bevy of musical loveliness lined up for your listening pleasure through PANAMANIA, and the shows are free.99 y’all.

A few of the shows that are a must see for me are:

Nathan Phillips Square

Kassav on July 15th
Nomadic Massive on July 16th
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue on July 24th
The Roots on August 8th at Nathan Phillips Square
Janelle Monae on August 9th

CIBC Pan Am Park

Tanika Charles on July 24th
Lula All-Stars on July 25th

The Distillery District

And of course, there are plenty of Caribbean vibes in store with Roy Cape, Mr. Vegas, Luciano, David Rudder, Tessane Chin, Kassav and more. Come on, I have to represent for my peoples!

Don’t miss out on the free shows that are being brought to you. There is an eclectic mix of soul, reggae, zouk, Latin rhythms and more that all reflect every international facet the Pan Am Games has to offer. I can’t stress the freeness enough! Here is your chance to get out and enjoy local and international artists across 3 stages – get into something!
