Dr. Dundiff and Friends to headline Waterfront Wednesday

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Music lovers are in for a treat at WFPK's Waterfront Wednesday this month.

There's something for everyone from the country rock powerhouse voice of Bonnie Bishop, to psychedelic rock from The Bright Light Social Hour and a plethora of local hip-hop talent on the headlining set of Dr. Dundiff and Friends.

Local music fans may remember the epic performance rapper and producer Dr. Dundiff put together at Forecastle two years ago, when Jim James from My Morning Jacket made a surprise appearance alongside dozens of local emcees. That moment will forever live on with the release of the "State of the Art" music video. See a preview in the video above, as Dr. Dundiff sits down with Kyle Meredith for The Setlist on WAVE 3 News.

Earlier this summer, Dr. Dundiff collaborated with Otis Junior to bring us 1 Moment 2 Another, which turned out to be one of the most talked about albums of the year. It fuses soul and R&B seamlessly with a hip hop vibe and amassed international recognition. Stream it now on Soundcloud.

Then Dr. Dundiff and Friends lit up the stage at Mercury Ballroom, giving fans another night to remember as he released their full length album.

And if you missed all that, don't worry! The stakes are raised and the stage is set to see what happens at Waterfront Wednesday... and we are all excited!

Look for him to be joined by Otis Junior, James Lindsey (formerly known as Jalin Roze), Kogan Dumb, Rmllw2llz, Touch AC, Dave., Dom B and countless other talented emcees. You don't want to miss it!
