About Giovanni Rodriguez:

Giovanni Rodriguez, a Grammy Award-winning multi-instrumentalist based in Nashville, was born in Italy to Dominican parents and grew up in Europe, where he developed an early appreciation for diverse musical genres. As a composer, producer, arranger, educator, and session musician, Rodriguez leads the Music City Latin Orchestra, Giovanni Rodriguez & 12 Manos, and Music City Soul Breakers. In 2018, he won a Grammy for his percussion work on CeCe Winans’ “Let Them Fall In Love,” which topped Billboard’s Gospel Music Chart. Rodriguez has also recorded with Victor Wooten and released an Afro-Caribbean album, “The Movement,” with EL MOVIMIENTO in 2010. Selected to perform at Super Bowl LIV’s pregame with Wes Little’s Latin All-Star group, Rodriguez has shared the stage or recorded with artists like Chris Stapleton, Christina Aguilera, Sheryl Crow, and Vince Gill.

Rain policy: in case of inclement weather, patrons will be notified by 4:30pm via this website, Facebook, and Instagram.
