    Funk Brothers Tribute / Eddie Willis Fundraiser live in Detroit 11/16/13

    Hey SDF!

    Original Funk Brothers guitarist Eddie Willis will be coming to Detroit for a very rare intimate appearance at the Northern Lights Lounge on Saturday, November 16th at 7:00pm. The event will have a question and answer session with Eddie, plus a concert of deep cuts and big hits with Eddie, Dennis Coffey, The Drew Schultz Funk Machine, and longtime members of the Funk Brothers touring band including Delbert Nelson, Treaty Womack, Spider Webb, Robert Jones, Ralphe Armstrong, Donna Curtain, and many more. We'll also have stories and memories of The Funk Brothers recounted by some Detroit Legends.

    Eddie has been suffering from the effects of Polio for some time now, and 100% of the profits from the show will be donated to Eddie and his wife. There will be a $15 cover with a suggested donation, as well as several cool signed pieces of Funk Brothers memorabilia auctioned off!

    If you'd like to get a ticket in advance, we've set up an unconventional sale through ebay - this works around the "convenience" fees that other companies charge for simply printing tickets or holding at will call. That page is here:


    Hope to see you there!

    Here's a dry run of one of our favorite Funk Brothers tunes that we're working up for November 16th! Rough around the edges, but it was our first time playing it:

    Of course we're going to play a lot of the big hits, but expect to hear some real deep cuts at this show as well! Can't wait to play this with the guys:

    Cut down on the big hits and play more deep cuts!! They are the best instrumental-wise. Fantastic job in the rehearsal.
