Budweiser Superfest presents Jill Scotts Summer Block Party at Verizon Center
Host Doug E. Fresh sure knew how to throw down an old school party with this simple one phrase—“We’re bringing it back to the Capital Centre!” For the current generation of Washingtonians, the only big arena concert venue in the area has been the Verizon Center. But prior to that, for previous generations, it was the Capital Centre in Landover, Maryland that hosted all the great R&B acts.
But at Jill Scott’s Summer Block Party, the Verizon Center truly felt like the old Cap Centre! Venerable R&B and hip hop icons DJ Jazzy Jeff and Mint Condition started the night out with a bit of nostalgic music, while crooner Anthony Hamilton brought the house down with his superb vocals. Jill Scott then closed it off with her powerful vocals and tremendous stage presence. All in all, the vibe and feel of the night had people reminiscing about old school block parties in their neighborhoods. It was a night most in attendance won’t soon forget!
