Though we assumed the pandemic would be under control by now, it appears we still have months ahead of us until it has run its course, something that we feel confident will occur. In light of the current situation, temporary outlook, and serious concern about the health and well being of our supporters, including but not limited to the more than 1,100 plus current registrants, performers, and event personnel; we feel it would be negligent on our part to proceed with the event at this
time. We have arrived at the decision to NOT cancel, but to postpone the 14th Annual Classic R&B Weekend scheduled for December 4, 5, 6, 2020 to December 10, 11, 12, 2021. While the existence of COVID-19 is unfortunate, the timing has afforded us the opportunity to make the event even more spectacular. We have added Howard Hewett, Ray, Goodman & Brown, and Blue Magic to the already star-studded weekend, to perform at a special Friday night concert!

Q&A’s

Will all the artists from  the 2020 event be moved  to the 2021 event?
Yes, and due to the postponement we are adding an extra LIVE Legendary Classic R&B concert, giving you two nights of performances shared between Peabo Bryson, Howard Hewett, The Manhattans feat Gerald Alston, Russell Thompkins Jr. & The New Stylistics, Tavares, Ray, Goodman & Brown, Blue Magic, and Atlantic Starr. This is in addition to our other activities including dance parties, comedy shows, meals, workshops, and much, much more all included in the price.

What happened to my 2020 reservation?
All registrations and payments submitted for the 2020 event have been transferred to the 2021 event.

What if I cannot make the new dates in 2021?
If you cannot make the 2021 event dates, you may receive a Classic R&B Weekend Future Event Credit (FEC) for the amount paid to date on your 2020 14th Annual Classic R&B Weekend. In order to transfer your FEC to another Classic R&B Weekend event, you must notify us, in writing, by sending an email to info@randbweekend.com by January 1, 2021 All Classic R&B Weekend Future Event Credits must be redeemed by December 31, 2022.

Why can’t I receive a refund instead of a 100% future event credit?
All Classic R&B Weekend events are 100% nonrefundable for any reason other than the event being cancelled. It is the guest responsibility to have purchased Trip Insurance for any Non-Refundable event. Therefore, we are offering the postponed dates of the 14th Classic R&B Weekend or a Future Event Credit. Please note, that our obligations to the hotel, artists and other vendors continue in order to plan and produce the kind of event we’ve given for the past 13 years.

Yes. All Classic R&B Weekend Future Event Credits must be redeemed by July 1, 2022.

Will I keep the same hotel room for  the 2021 event?
Yes. All hotel reservations for the 2020 event have been transferred to the 2021 event exactly as they were booked originally.

What if I would like to upgrade my hotel room?
If you wish to upgrade your hotel room, you may call 888-210-8009 to request an upgrade and we will assist you based on hotel room availability.

What if I cannot attend the 2021 event and I do not want a (FEC) to attend the Classic R&B Weekend Event in 2022?
