The four founding members of Jodeci, the North Carolina R&B group originally formed in Charlotte in 1989, consisting of Cedric “K-Ci” Hailey, Joel “JoJo” Hailey, Donald “DeVanté Swing” DeGrate, and Dalvin “Mr. Dalvin” DeGrate, will reunite for a headlining “Summer Block Party” tour with SWV and Dru Hill.

The group first came to prominence after signing with Uptown Records in 1991, releasing their debut album, Forever My Lady, which brought them mainstream success. In 1996, they announced a hiatus which prompted K-Ci & JoJo to branch off as a duo, releasing five albums. The group reunited for their fourth studio album, The Past, the Present, the Future, in 2015. 

The tour will kick off with a hometown concert at PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte on Friday, July 28 followed by a Greensboro show at White Oak Amphitheatre on Sunday, July 30. Pre-sale starts Tuesday, April 25 at 10 a.m. (code: BLOCKPARTY).
