We’re pleased to announce two upcoming concerts related to our Said I Had a Vision LP.
After more than three decades, Ann Sexton and David Lee will be reuniting onstage–backed by the Constellations and Bunny Clyde!–at the Art of Sound Festival in Shelby, NC, this Saturday, October 23rd at 7:00pm at the Arts Council. This concert developed as a direct result of the Paradise of Bachelors partnership with David Lee, and due to the encouragement and tireless planning of our friend Tommy Forney, who is himself an accomplished musician and local music historian. Marking the occasion as even more historic, Art of Sound is awarding David its prestigious Heritage Bridge Award for his career contributions to music in the region. We’re proud to have played a role in this long overdue and welcome recognition.
We Bachelors will be there. Will you?
In more exciting news, we have curated a Said I Had a Vision record release concert featuring David Lee, the Constellations, and Joe Brown and the Singing Mellerairs. The event is scheduled for 4:00pm on Sunday, November 7th at the Don Gibson Theater in Shelby and will follow a presentation and panel discussion with David Lee and the musicians. This event offers soul and gospel fans a rare opportunity to meet Mr. Lee and his fellow artists in person. We hope you’ll join us for this special free concert honoring Mr. Lee’s legacy. The concert also serves as an opening event for the traveling Smithsonian Museum on Main Street exhibition “New Harmonies,” which explores American vernacular music at the local and national levels and to which we are honored to contribute. More details are forthcoming on this concert as well as a PoB Soundsystem-staffed record release party in Carrboro, NC in mid-November. As always, email us if you’d like to invite us to DJ in your hometown or venue.
