Mango Festival Features Omarion, Monica, Chrisette Michele and Silk Saturday and Sunday in Deerfield Beach

This Saturday and Sunday, the Mango Festival in Deerfield Beach offers a wealth of R&B and jazz, and for the most part, County Grind's priorities match the size of the text corresponding with the artist on the poster. Silk, best known for the mid'-90s R&B smash "Freak Me," B2K graduate Omarion, and a pair of delightful divas, Monica and Chrisette Michele, are highlights of Saturday's slate. Come back Sunday for vibes legend Roy Ayers, Bobby "Across 110th Street" Womack, as well as Lonnie Liston Smith, Wayne Henderson, Ronnie Laws, and Rance Allen.

As pointed out by the esteemed Tom Francis over on our sister blog the Juice, the event has come along with a bit of controversy regarding where the $75 cost of VIP bracelets and $45 cost for general admission is going.

The Mango Festival takes place Saturday, June 19, and Sunday, June 20 at West Side Park, 445 SW 2nd St., Deerfield Beach.
