Described by Vibe magazine as “one helluva rock’n’roller-coaster ride” and by PopMatters as “a treasure waiting to be found,” Toshi Reagon is a one-woman celebration of all that’s dynamic, progressive and uplifting in American music. Since first taking to the stage at age 17, this versatile singer-songwriter-guitarist has moved audiences of all kinds with her big-hearted, hold-nothing-back approach to rock, blues, R&B, country, folk, spirituals and funk.
The last performance CAP UCLA presented at Royce Hall pre-pandemic was Octavia E. Butler's Parable Of The Sower, Reagon’s sold-out opera, based on Octavia Butler’s popular novel, which received critical acclaim from the Los Angeles Times. It is only fitting that Reagon join us in our return to Royce Hall, this time accompanied by her band BIGLovely.
