Louisville City has announced the lineup for its first-ever International Night Saturday at Slugger Field. Four musical acts will help Louisville City fans celebrate the diversity of our global game starting at 5:45.
Shortly after doors open at 5:30, the four musical acts will begin playing an hour-long set at different stations around the stadium as part of our Party around the Pitch presented by Lunazul Tequila.
Hora Certa is a quintet that performs in a wide range of styles that can all be characterized as Brazilian jazz. Hora Certa or "the right time" is a perfect name for their effortless groove and smooth precision.
Andrew Witten is an accomplished bagpiper with the Louisville Pipe Band representing Ireland. Local pipers and drummers recently joined LouCity's acclaimed Groove Machine drum line during their March to the Match.
James Gibson is a steel drummer representing Trinidad and Tobago. The distinct sound of the islands will give fans a Caribbean feel at Slugger Field Saturday night.
KUVEBO! is Sound Community's resident West African drum and dance company. The name KUVEBO! means "village style drum and dance party" in Hamidou Koivogui's home in Guinea, West Africa. Now residing in Louisville, KY, Hamidou brings his music and dance traditions to our communities, with experienced artist-educator collaborators and dedicated students.
In addition to music on the concourse before the match, Louisville City will have a pregame message from the players celebrating the 10 different nations represented on LouCity's roster, flags of nations from all over the globe on display around the stadium and, of course, in the Scouse's House supporter section, and a halftime performance by Kuvebo!
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. between Louisville City and Ottawa Fury FC. The American and Canadian National Anthems will be sung before the game.
