Funk Brothers Tribute / Eddie Willis Fundraiser live in Detroit 16 Nov 2013
For Your Information - Copied from Soulful Detroit, Motown Forum
Original Funk Brothers guitarist Eddie Willis will be coming to Detroit for a very rare intimate appearance at the Northern Lights Lounge on Saturday, November 16th at 7:00pm. The event will have a question and answer session with Eddie, plus a concert of deep cuts and big hits with Eddie, Dennis Coffey, The Drew Schultz Funk Machine, and longtime members of the Funk Brothers touring band including Delbert Nelson, Treaty Womack, Spider Webb, Robert Jones, Ralphe Armstrong, Donna Curtain, and many more. We'll also have stories and memories of The Funk Brothers recounted by some Detroit Legends.
Eddie has been suffering from the effects of Polio for some time now, and 100% of the profits from the show will be donated to Eddie and his wife. There will be a $15 cover with a suggested donation, as well as several cool signed pieces of Funk Brothers memorabilia auctioned off!
If you'd like to get a ticket in advance, we've set up an unconventional sale through ebay - this works around the "convenience" fees that other companies charge for simply printing tickets or holding at will call. That page is here:
Hope to see you there!
I might get in trouble for this, but Eddie is worth it! For more info, go to the Soulful Detroit site (maybe you can participate in the auction).
