Mwenso and the Shakes are global artists whose music merges entertainment and artistry at the highest level. Hailing from Sierra Leone, London, South Africa, Greenwich Village, Madagascar, France, Jamaica, South Florida, and Hawaii, the Shakes now call Harlem their home. Michael Mwenso leads an electrifying show The New York Times calls “intense, prowling, and ebullient” as the troupe blends their formidable command of jazz and blues expression with the stylings of James Brown and other African American musical legends.

The special event is part of the Elaine and Jerome Rosenfeld Concerts in the Courtyard at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Tucked inside the Calderwood Courtyard, this season-long series showcases the hottest, most diverse acts from Boston and around the globe.

Courtyard seating is limited; low lawn chairs (3 feet or under when unfolded) and/or blankets are recommended. Tall chairs are not permitted. You may bring your own food and nonalcoholic beverages. All bags are subject to inspection by Museum staff.

For summer concerts, Bravo restaurant turns its patio into a special lounge for MFA members and their guests. View the concerts and enjoy cocktails and light dining! Limited table seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For smaller parties, table sharing will be encouraged.

The Elaine and Jerome Rosenfeld Concerts in the Courtyard is supported by Elaine and Jerome Rosenfeld.
