One of the most popular bands in San Francisco in the late '70's, Silk and Soul, is having a reunion concert in 2018! First appearing at Lowell High School's 1976 Senior Show, the band continued to perform throughout the Bay Area over the next five years. Made up primarily of Lowell High School students, the band eventually became a mix of players representing Lowell, Washington, Sacred Heart, Riordan, McAteer, and USF. Returning members include Lowell Grads Frank Macchia, Marvin Wong, Peter Grimes, Kevin Lym, Tony Thomas, Albert Abena, Marty Wehner, and Erik Andrews. Also featuring Dominique Marchand, Andy Amoroso, Eric Valencia, Albert Lassiter, and Vance Reddit. Joining us this year is Gary Bell, a well-known Bay Area guitarist as a member of Elements of Soul, who was a Silk and Soul member for the last two years of the band. Also returning are two fantastic Bay Area musicians that we could not do this without: the funkiest bass player around, Kirk Crumpler, as well as saxophonist extraordinaire, Brian Lassiter (son of our trumpet player, Albert!).
This year we are so fortunate to have two new special guests joining us: Darlene Coleman, on lead and background vocals, is a great singer who will blow you away with her amazing talent! And multi-keyboardist David Council, who is currently touring with Larry Graham and Graham Central Station, will be joining us! So, if you miss hearing real musicians playing the TRUE Old School soul and RnB music of Earth, Wind, and Fire, Tower of Power, Ohio Players, Average White Band, and more, please join us! Come see friends you haven't seen in years! Let's make it a big reunion for us all !!!
“Well, it’s a Saturday night and Silk and Soul will be hangin’ out, at Ashkenaz, it’s the place to party... So, you should jump into your ride and hit the road cuz there’s only one place to go!”
