Happy 100th birthday Marshall Allen of Sun Ra Arkestra!

Happy 100th birthday to Sun Ra Arkestra‘s Marshall Allen who has led the group since 1995 and been a member since 1958! Wow!

The Arkestra will be playing shows across the Northeast this summer, including three in NYC in June: a free show at SummerStage in Central Park on 6/13 with Kim Gordon and Slauson Malone 1; a special Marshall Allen birthday show with Yo La Tengo at Sony Hall on 6/15; and Roulette on 6/23 as part of the 2024 Vision Festival. We’re also hoping that after those shows happen, the Arkestra will be added to this year’s Union Pool Summer Thunder lineup.
Sun Ra Arkestra also play Newport Jazz Fest in August and lots of other shows. All dates are below.

Here’s to many more birthdays, Marshall!
