Booker T. Jones Celebrates the Release of His Memoir TIME IS TIGHT and Companion Album NOTE BY NOTE

Booker T. Jones
Celebrates the release of his memoir Time Is Tight and companion album Note By Note

$47 Advance | $50 Day of Show
Doors open at 7pm.

Booker T, a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, winner of four GRAMMY Awards and recipient of a GRAMMY Award for Lifetime Achievement, will treat fans prior to the musical performance to an intimate reading from his forthcoming autobiography Time is Tight, followed by a short Q&A opportunity. In an emotional musical journey, Booker T will then perform the songs that make up the fabric of his musical identity and material from his new album Note By Note. Booker T. & the M.G.'s staples like "Green Onions" are woven into defining moments from his journey after Stax, when he produced and recorded with artists as diverse as Bill Withers, Willie Nelson, and Carlos Santana. The evening culminates with new original music, highlighting the soaring guitar and vocals of his son and collaborator Teddy Jones. After the show, Booker T will greet fans and sign copies of his memoir Time is Tight and new album Note By Note.

"… this book reveals so much more of the man." – Bob Dylan

"as joyful to read as Booker’s music is to listen to." – Willie Nelson

"This beautiful memoir is a near perfect reflection of the man I would walk a million miles for: engaging, unforgettable, and deeply creative." – Sinéad O'Connor

"In a new memoir, Time Is Tight: My Life, Note by Note, the Stax studio wizard and acclaimed producer tells his own story and finds his voice. … The result emphasizes not only his Memphis roots and role in Stax’s reinvention of R&B but his second act here in Los Angeles — as a wide-ranging session man and producer who remains, in his eighth decade, a sought-after sonic guru." – The New York Times

Roomful of Blues

$32 Advance | $37 Day of Show
Doors open at 7pm. Kemp Harris opens the show at 8pm!

Even though Roomful of Blues' lineup has changed over the years, the band has always been one of the tightest, most joyful blues ensembles in the world. Currently an eight-piece unit led by guitarist Chris Vachon, the band has never sounded fresher or stronger. In 2010, singer Phil Pemberton took over the vocal duties, bringing his sweet and soulful vocals and adding another bright new dimension to the jazzy, jump-blues musical roots. Their winning combination of jump, swing, blues, R&B and soul remains their calling card, as does their ability to fill the dance floor. Along with newer members, bassist John Turner, trumpeter Carl Gerhard, drummer Chris Anzalone, and keyboardist Rusty Scott, and longtime members baritone and tenor saxophonist Mark Earley, tenor and alto saxophonist Rich Lataille, Roomful keeps on rockin' in 2019.

About the opener, Kemp Harris:

Kemp Harris has a long and varied career as a performer, composer, musician, activist, children's author, and teacher. Born in North Carolina, Kemp taught himself piano and was writing songs at age 14. Kemp has acted in numerous films and TV shows such as SMILF (Showtime), and is comfortable sharing the stage with artists such as Taj Mahal, Koko Taylor, and Gil Scott-Heron, as well as performing shows with his smokin' band. He wrote and performed "If Loneliness Was Black" for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Complexions Dance Company. Kemp has also composed for WGBH Public Television/Boston.

"Kemp Harris is a thief, a tease and a heartbreaker. He knows too much. And it's all right there when he sings… beautifully there. He'll take your breath away."
