As part of his 2013 tour, the legendary Booker T. Jones will be performing at the El Rey Theatre, Tuesday, June 25. Since the ’60s, Jones has played alongside soul singers Otis Redding and Albert King (to name a few) as part of Stax Records’ backup band. Although Jones is recognized for his participation in producing the song “Green Onions”, his talent for utilizing various instruments and keeping the soul in his songs has kept him on the radar. So cancel your Tuesday plans and head out to the show for some classic blast-from-the-past songs. Special guests will include Anthony Hamilton, Jay James, Kori Withers, and others.
Tickets to the show are $35 (GA) – $125 (VIP), doors open at 7PM, and the show is all ages! You can win a pair of tickets with us by entering the contest below, courtesy of Goldenvoice and Grimy Goods.
