The Basilica Block Party is sticking with vintage soul for the slot vacated by the cancellation of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings on July 13. Oakland R&B star Raphael Saadiq will headline the Church Stage on Saturday night.

The energetic Grammy winner has released four solo albums since Lucy Pearl dissolved. Before that, he was a member of Tony! Toni! Tone! He accompanied Mick Jagger on the Grammy Awards in 2011 in a tribute to Solomon Burke.
 

On June 3, Jones and Dap-Kings postponed the release of their new album and called off their tour because she is being treated for cancer.
