Darrell Banks Memorial

Recommended Posts

Fans of Darrell Banks have raised $1,500 for a bench to stand at his grave, which previously was marked by a small disc wedged into a lawn at Detroit Memorial Park Cemetery.

On July 17, David Meikle and Lowell Boileau plan to gather in this Detroit suburb with Banks fans to dedicate the Darrell Banks Memorial Bench. Meikle and Boileau are creators of the great web site SoulfulDetroit.com.

The SD website has a great bio on Banks here.

Karen is on about it being a nice gesture to show appreciation to the contribution that Darrell Banks has made to soul music. Doh

Exactly Dave, Janine do try and keep up ;-)

For anyone interested, the grave bench for Darrell Banks was

dedicated today at a short memorial service today.

Frances Nero, Spyder Turner, Dennis Coffey were among some the

Detroit Alumni that attended.

Last year at the Australian Northern Soul Weekender in Perth there was a guy doing a collection/donation bucket to assist in the funding toward this unmarked grave, so im pleased that Darrell will finally have a fitting headstone for his grave. RIP and thankyou for the tunes and the wonderful melodies and memories

regards

Paul
