You’re invited to attend Dave Chappelle’s Juke Joint, featuring Frédéric Yonnet & The Band with No Name. The event is held in a barn on a working farm in Dave’s hometown, the Village of Yellow Springs, Ohio. Join in as Chappelle serves as the instigator and ultimate hype-man in a Band-vs-DJ sound clash that blurs all musical lines.

Dave Chappelle is best known for his stand-up act; however, his appreciation of good music is hardly a secret.  In 2015, he hosted his original Juke Joint in a barn on a farm in his hometown of Yellow Springs, Ohio. Inspired by music born in the juke joints of America’s Deep South, Chappelle’s modern-day Juke Joint takes you on a trip through his personal playlist that includes tunes ranging from Coltrane to Nirvana.
Band members are all musical virtuosos who have toured with legends like Stevie Wonder and Prince. Their instrumental interpretations which include a mix of jazz, rock, R&B, layered with hip-hop, are so electrifying, it’s like capturing lightning in a bottle.
This year, we’ll include a special tribute to Prince on the anniversary of his passing.

Known for its laid-back vibe and community atmosphere, Yellow Springs is more than just a “hippie enclave”.  It’s an eclectic and vibrant community of creative types, which boasts Dave Chappelle among its most-noted residents.
It’s no surprise Chappelle would settle in such a rural town. Yellow Springs is a respite from the hurried pace of New York and a shield from the bright lights of Tinsel Town. It’s simple and unpretentious. No five-star hotels. Just quaint inns and B&B’s and an assortment of shops, galleries, restaurants, and performance spaces that make up the “center of town”.  “It’s like a little blue Bernie Sanders island in the Trump sea,” said Dave Chappelle in a CNN interview.
While the Juke Joint is inspired by music born in the juke joints of America’s Deep South, it is rooted in the spirit of Yellow Springs. The Juke Joint is not just a show, it’s the magic that happens before and after the show!
