Featured entertainment—Chairmen of the Board! With one of Soul Music's all-time great group names, the Chairmen of the Board has pleased music lovers for over 30 years. Formed in Detroit , the Chairmen were one of the first acts signed by songwriting legends Holland/Dozier/Holland for their Invictus label following H/D/H's messy divorce from Motown. The group came out of the box strong in 1970 with the wonderful "Give Me Just A Little More Time," a classic early 70's radio smash highlighted by lead singer General Johnson's emotive, plaintive vocals. "Give Me" was the foundation of the group's excellent debut album, which also featured the infectious "(You've Got Me) Dangling on a String". Learn More.

Yoga on the Riverfront | Wednesday, April 27, 7 – 8 a.m.

Enjoy a Yin Yoga practice to start your day. This session will provide a slow-paced, meditative practice that targets the deep connective tissues of the body and promotes joint mobility. By deepening the postures and holding them for longer periods of time while concentrating on the breath, blockages are released. Its roots are based in ancient Chinese (Taoist and Indian) philosophies regarding the flow of energy through the meridians of the body to release both physical and mental blockages. 

Join us on the Wilmington Convention Center lawn along the River Walk for this energizing morning session.  Please plan to bring a yoga mat or two large towels, water; optional materials include two small hand towels for extra comfort.
