A group of heavy hitters will be coming together to celebrate one of the best eras and genres of music – 70’s soul – THIS Sunday, in an event hosted by KCRW’s own Garth Trinidad.
Donny Hathaway, Marvin Gaye, Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder and more will get re-workings from a incredibly talented group of individuals.
LA’s Miguel Atwood Ferguson Ensemble will be guiding the evening with a variety of special guests — Seu Jorge, Zap Mama, Coco from Quadron and Spacek. One of my favorite soul singers, Alice Russell, will also make an appearance. Below is her excellent new single “Heartbreaker”:
Oh, and did I mention Questlove from The Roots will be spinning a DJ set? Yup, that’s right! Check out details below and buy tickets here.
From Garth: “An event like this only comes around once in a while. With such a stellar line up, it’s sure to be legendary.”
