The vibrant city of Houston is set to groove once again to the nostalgic beats of Philadelphia soul. The Community Music Center of Houston (CMCH) proudly returns to the iconic Miller Outdoor Theatre, bringing with them the fourth volume of the beloved "Philly Soul Sound" on the evening of Saturday, April 27, 2024.
