BLKBOK, neo-classical piano renegade and culture innovator, returns home to Detroit for his first headline Juneteenth Celebration and as part of his Mixtapes & Counterpoint 2022 Tour. BLKBOK's live, high-energy performance is culturally reflective and seeks to entertain with a live piano-based performance like nothing you have ever seen before. BLKBOK's vision is to illuminate awareness for all, encouraging dialogue and counterpoint in the way we perceive ourselves and the world we live in together.

Born and raised in Detroit, BLKBOK grew up in a music-filled house. By the time he was 8, BLKBOK was an acclaimed piano prodigy, winning statewide accolades and college-level competitions. No stranger to the industry grind, he has worked on the road as lead pianist or musical director with artists including Rhianna, Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, Cirque du Soleil, and more. Known for explosive and immersive live music performances, BLKBOK engages audiences with his incredible talent and channels his experience from sharing the stage with the world’s biggest performers.
