Still Bill: A Tribute to Bill Withers at Momo's
One of my all time favorite old school soul songs is "Ain't No Sunshine" by the great Bill Withers. I credit my dad for introducing me to Withers at a young age. I think Withers often gets lost in the shuffle these days with all the other fantastic soul artists of his era, but there isn't a person alive that doesn't know and love "Lean On Me". Some of his other classic hits include "Just The Two of Us" and "Lovely Day". Now you know who Bill Withers is right? Yeah, that guy...
Tonight at Momo's, my friends at Bemba Entertainment have put together a fantastic tribute to Mr. Withers. They will be showing the new movie, Still Bill, before a slew of great musicians take the stage to pay tribute to the soul legend. The line up includes Adam Rogers, Margo Valiente, Akina Adderley and The Vintage Playboys. It should be quite the soulful event and a really good time. Do show up early to see the movie and stay late for the music. Check out the trailer for Still Bill here:
The movie will be screening at 8:00pm on the outside deck at Momo's. I suggest getting there before hand to get a good spot. The show is 18 and up. It's $10 for 21+ and $15 for minors. For more info, visit Do512 HERE.
