SINCE JUNE, Savannah Stopover has hosted "Stopover in the Yard" at The Grey, a concert series complete with lunch and drinks.
For this most recent installment, the Stopover folks are bringing Robert Lee Coleman & the Night Owls back to town. You may have seen the Macon troupe put on an engrossing show at Revival Fest; if so, you know you’re in for a treat. If not, catch them while you can!
As a member of James Brown’s band The J.B.’s, Coleman shared the stage with the “Godfather of Soul” from 1970 to 1973. Tearing it up on a Gibson Firebird, Coleman contributed to iconic tracks like “Hot Pants” (that’s his riff, by the way), “Make It Funky,” and “Revolution of the Mind.”
Coleman recently recorded One More Mile, an electric blues CD of original songs and cover tunes. Live, he’s an incredible leader for The Night Owls, a gentle commander in head-to-toe red.
Tickets are first come, first serve, with doors opening at noon, and includes a meal of southern fare prepared on the grill and a choice of beer, wine, or Chatham Artillery Punch.
