I've been doing some deep thinking about this Valentine Show thats coming up . The place is really a historic place in Southern Soul Black music history. Its a huge club out in the county, just outside Huntsville Al called the EBONY CLUB.
When I first got old enough to slip out of the house we teenagers would go up there and see all the folks hanging out there. It was the first Night club I ever went into. I can remember when it was first opened up it didnt have a roof on it, they ran out of money building it and had to open it before the top was put on.
Chuck Moore ,the owner was an amazingly ambitious and determined man to build that huge night club and run it the 40 years that he did.
Johnnie Taylor , Little Milton Campbell , Bennie Latimore , Marvin Sease and many other Blues and Southern Soul artist have been on the EBONY CLUB stages over the years. I am honored to be able to go back into this old club where I first heard the Blues and be able to give back some of the soul that the place gave to me.
The club is still going and so am I , and so are the folks in the community of TRIANA AL. going on with their brand of southern soul hospitality,
I'm gonna ask all my fans and friends to help on this event. I really would like to light a spark in the community again. Triana is a nice little sleepy town and it is really pretty when it comes alive . Im going to ask folks to help me sell tickets and get the crowd built up like it used to be. In Triana the EBONY was the place to go, and still is . What do you think about the EBONY Club ?
