Theodores’ in Springfield has quite the one-two punch coming up on Sept 27-28 when Texas blues (by way of Connecticut) teams up with the Stax/Motown sound on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
Sept. 28, Theodores’ will bring in Ozzie Williams RRB, a tribute to the classic sounds that came out of the Stax, Motown, and Muscle Shoals studios in the early 1960s. Fronted by vocalist/percussionist Ozzie Williams, and backed by a four-piece band, RRB keeps the classic sounds of soul, reggae and R&B alive for today’s audiences. “RRB” stands for Roots, Rhythm, and Blues. The band includes veterans such as Marcus Childs, Dan Wallack, Ray Moore, and Gary Johnson.
