In what might be one of the cozier-yet-impressive shows to hit the Hamptons in 2021, Wyclef Jean is slated to play at Water Mill restaurant Calissa later this month.
The Hamptons has long been a place where A-list stars do small shows at local venues, and this concert could end up a memorable one as — due to the relatively close quarters found in the Calissa courtyard and within its dining area — anyone present will be mere footsteps from the man as he performs.
As the winner of three Grammy Awards (and nominated for 10), Jean first rose to prominence as a member of the hip-hop group Fugees — with whom he won two Grammys. But he has since become a notable musician and producer in his own right, winning the 1998 Grammy for album of the year ("Supernatural"). Aside from successful collaborations with such artists as Shakira ("Hips Don't Lie") and Santana ("Maria Maria"), Jean has his own hit songs as well ("Gone till November," "We Trying to Stay Alive," "Guantanamera").He’ll play Calissa on July 16; limited table reservations are available (and required), with minimums starting at $500.
In addition, Calissa is set to make a splash as a performance venue this season with other notable artists scheduled to play the space, such as DJ Armand Van Helden (July 30), Questlove (Aug. 13) and Rev Run (Aug. 20; with DJ Ruckus) among others.
