Eli 'Paperboy' Reed @ The Bootleg Theater Details

Eli Paperboy Reed at Bootleg Theater - Bar Stage

presents his only Los Angeles date on this 2016 'My Way Home' tour!

Eli Paperboy Reed

“My love of Gospel began with the sounds of the small groups and quartets, which is very different from the choir-based music that Gospel For Teens was focused on when I was first introduced to them,” explains Reed. “It’s more guitar-driven, more bluesy, more raw, less refined, and more of a male-dominated sound. They were really interested when I proposed a program that focused on quartet music because they didn’t have anything that particularly served the teenage black men in the community the way the choirs served its mostly-female membership.”

Combining history lessons with music classes, Reed introduced the kids to Gospel quartet pioneers like The Soul Stirrers and The Dixie Hummingbirds, teaching them about the arrangements and harmonies of the classics and encouraging them to write their own modern interpretations.

Support provided by DJ Greg Belson
