The Fresh Music Festival with Keith Sweat, K-Ci & JoJo, Guy and SWV – and featuring host Doug E. Fresh – is coming to the James Brown Arena on June 29.

Keith Sweat had several top-10 hits, the biggest being I Want Her in 1987. R&B duo K-Ci & JoJo is best known for All My Life in 1998.

Guy rose to fame with such hits as Groove Me, I Like, Piece of My Love, Let’s Chill and Do Me Right. SWV scored a string of top-10 R&B hits in the 1990s such as I’m So Into You, Right Here, Downtown, Weak, Anything and You’re Always On My Mind.

The first human beatbox in the rap world, Doug E. Fresh, performs note-perfect imitations of drum machines, effects and samples of hip-hop classics. Fresh’s first single, The Show/La Di Da Di, is a hip-hop classic.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday at, at (877) 4AUGTIX and at the Champion’s Box Office at the arena.
