Tix available for 3/5 rehearsal show for the Robert Johnson concert @ City Winery
A preview of the Robert Johnson 100th birthday tribute at the Apollo Theatre taking place on the next evening, March 6th.

Enjoy a multi-artist show with an amazing house band lead by Steve Jordan. Artists performing at the Apollo and a good chance will be participating in this live rehearsal are The Roots, Chuck D, Living Colour, Shemekia Copeland, Bettye Levettte, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Sam Moore, and Todd Rundgren. This is a rare chance to not only see artists working through material, but get an intimate and close sneak-peak of this historic concert taking place celebrating the musical legacy of Robert Johnson--considered one the most influencial musicians of the 20th century and certainly for the Blues. The show at the Apollo benefits the Building of the Blues Hall of Fame by the Blues Foundation in Memphis.
