On Friday, Nov. 12, Rock City’s Velvet Lounge series will warmly welcome back the Mehuman Trio. The music will play from 5 to 7 p.m. at Rock City Books & Coffee, 328 Main St.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Mehuman (pronounced MAY-mon) Jonson is an award-winning songwriter who has toured extensively throughout North America and Europe. Playing an original mix of acoustic neo-soul and Americana, with influences of jazz, funk and gospel, the Mehuman Trio creates a sonic palette that defies a single label. Formed in September of 2008, they have played for standing-room-only crowds in Belfast, Camden, Rockland and Rockport; and are in the process of recording their first album of original material.

As usual, there is no cover charge; however, tipping the musicians is highly encouraged. For more information on this and other events at the downtown coffee shop/bookstore, call 594-4123.
