For those of you who have been following TITLE TOWN since day one, you surely remember the event we did with the one & only Renaldo Domino
(Twinight Records) backed by JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound
. This was back in November 2009, in the Shadow Lounge
days. After relocating TITLE TOWN to Brillobox
(2013), we did another live event with Wesley Bright & The Hi-Lites
at Thunderbird Cafe
. We called it TITLE TOWN 'Dance & Show'
and it drew the better part of three hundred people!
On Friday, September 18th we are doing another TITLE TOWN Dance & Show, once again at the Thunderbird
, and this one will include a live performance by Pittsburgh's own, world-renowned songstress, Spanky Wilson & The All-Stars!
Spanky Wilson should need no introduction. Her first three albums (1968-1970) were produced by Aretha Franklin's
musical conductor H.B. Barnum
. She subsequently recorded for Westbound Records (1975)
, where she was label mates with the likes of Funkadelic
, The Ohio Players
, The Detroit Emeralds
, Denise LaSalle
and many others. After spending many years in France, her career was rejuvenated a decade ago by a UK-based DJ, Will Holland aka Quantic
of the Quantic Soul Orchestra
, who released her 2006 full-length album I'm Thankful. The All-Stars are comprised of A-list Pittsburgh-based musicians: Max Leake (keys), Paul Thompson (bass), Thomas Wendt (drums) and Lou Stellute (sax).
This will be a TITLE TOWN event for the record books. Doors open early at 9:00 pm. TITLE TOWN resident DJ's J. Malls & Gordy G. will be spinning Soul & Funk 45's through out the night. You are all encouraged to stay late and close the night out TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Dance Party
-style after the live performance!
