For those of you who have been following TITLE TOWN since day one, you surely remember the event we did with the one & only Renaldo Domino (Twinight Records) backed by JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound. This was back in November 2009, in the Shadow Lounge days. After relocating TITLE TOWN to Brillobox (2013), we did another live event with Wesley Bright & The Hi-Lites at Thunderbird Cafe. We called it TITLE TOWN 'Dance & Show' and it drew the better part of three hundred people!
Mark your calendars for Friday, September 18th. TITLE TOWN returns to the Thunderbird Café for another ‘Dance & Show’ event, this time including a live performance by Pittsburgh's own, world-renowned songstress, Spanky Wilson & The All-Stars!
Spanky should need no introduction. Her first three albums (1969-1971) were produced by Aretha Franklin's musical conductor H.B. Barnum. She subsequently recorded for Westbound Records (1975), where she joined a roster of artists including the likes of Funkadelic, The Ohio Players, The Detroit Emeralds, Denise LaSalle and many others. After spending many years in France, her career was rejuvenated a decade ago by a UK-based DJ, Will Holland aka Quantic of the Quantic Soul Orchestra, who released her 2006 full-length album I'm Thankful. The All-Stars are comprised of A-list Pittsburgh-based musicians: Max Leake (keys), Paul Thompson (bass), Thomas Wendt (drums) and Lou Stellute (sax).
This will be a TITLE TOWN event for the record books. Doors open early at 9:00 pm. TITLE TOWN resident DJ's J. Malls & Gordy G. will be spinning Soul & Funk 45's through out the night. You are all encouraged to stay late and close the night out TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Dance Party-style after the live performance!
