Robert Ellis

A line of more than 500 people waited on Sunday afternoon to get a peak at Alabama Shakes in a free concert at Central Park SummerStage. While most concertgoers gave up and pitched camp in the surrounding area, Alabama Shakes grooved loud enough on hits like "Hold On" and "I Found You" for those scattered all over the green space to hear. Opening the afternoon bash was Robert Ellis, who awed the audience with just his guitar, his voice and a stool. He was followed by Diamond Rings, a side project turned full-on band started by Deer Tick member John McCauley. A good time was had by all—in, out and around the park. TONY photographers David Gettens and Jolie Ruben captured the afternoon set.
