Lakewood's Rockin' Block Party: a rollicking good time

Hazel Miller and special guests make start of summer a night to remember

Hazel Miller is always something special. But her performance — a tribute to women — at Lakewood's 2022 Rockin' Block Party was an inspired night of R&B, soul and rock and roll that put a smile on virtually every face.

The crowd, filled with everyone from toddlers to seniors, sung along, danced, snacked, played and smiled through a set featuring classics from Aretha Franklin, the Rolling Stones and Carole King, to name just a few. Joining Miller onstage, fellow band member Coco Brown showcased her beautiful tone, while guest vocalist Kimyana Lee brought down the house on more than one occasion.

There were burgers and Devil dogs, shaved ice and Greek favorites to nosh. And those who wanted to show off their dance moves found plenty of room right in front of the stage. Following Miller's show, a screening of the cult-classic film "Hairspray" kept the fun going.

After what's seemed like a brutal few weeks with sadness and tragedy filling the airwaves and social media, the city gave residents a well-oiled, wonderfully-timed gift of music and laughter that would make anyone happy to call Lakewood home.
