Friday, June 22 – Signed Sealed Delivered: A Stevie Wonder & Motown Tribute
with the Gerry Williams Band, DJ BMF
54 N. Orange Ave.
Not much to this event but exactly what’s promised, and luckily, what’s promised is pretty sweet. Local funk-soul brothers the Gerry Williams Band start things off with a set of originals and, later on, take the stage for a night of Stevie Wonder tunes. Throughout the night, DJ BMF spins classic Motown sounds. All of this sounds to our ears like the makings of a groovy theme night: Bowties required, ladies get in free, but only in groups of 3-4 and the pretty one gets two-for-one drinks all night? A karaoke contest in which the winner gets to marry one of Berry Gordy’s great-granddaughters? Just spitballing here, people. A night of Wonder means a night of joy and togetherness. Just remember: The first person to shout a request for “I Just Called to Say I Love You” gets adopted by the DeBarges. Shudder. – Justin Strout
