"Alderman Stars in Summer Lineup"

Greg Morehead and his band will take stage next month on the Green, as the city adds a local twist to its summer concert series.

Morehead, who’s the alderman in Dixwell’s Ward 22, drums for the band DangerZone. The funk/pop band has made appearances on the Letterman and Leno shows — but has yet to play a New Haven date.

The band has been chosen play in the city’s ninth annual Music on the Green series. The summer lineup was revealed at a press event held by Market New Haven Thursday at the downtown Kitchen Zinc restaurant.

DangerZone will make its New Haven debut on July 25, taking the stage on the New Haven Green before funk/R&B artist Jeffrey Osborne.

“We’re very excited,” said Morehead (pictured, with a poster of Osborne). The alderman, who teaches music at a Bridgeport school, showed up to the press event with snazzy snakeskin shoes. He said his band will include bass, drums, guitar, two keyboards and several brass instruments.

The concert series has been scaled down from years past, when headliners drew crowds of 30,000 to the Green. This year, it’s sponsored by Yale-New Haven Hospital. Anne Worcester, head of Market New Haven, said after the series was downsized, she received feedback that people wanted a longer show, and for the headliners to start later in the evening. For the first time this year, the organizers are calling on local talent to perform an opening act.

Our Music is like no other music that is in rotation. The styles of our songs vary and no two songs sound alike. All of our songs are written and produced by us.

This is our Story…

Nocko got an email one night from an A&R executive at Def Jam to see if he knew of a band that could play behind Ludacris on The Late Show with David Letterman two weeks later. He immediately said he has JUST the band. In that instant, DangerZone was formed. His first three phone calls were to his brother, GFunk, one of his cousins Sage and his other cousin Drizz. After these components of the now legendary unit were in place, the remaining members were added by being friends of the family. That was 2005 and since then Dangerzone has played on numerous television shows, live concerts and shows with other national Artists and by themselves. All of our talents were cultivated by playing our separate instruments in church. Our influences are every Artist that makes good music. Our style is identical to none!
