Archie Bell, I’ve never met him. I love his music. Archie Bell & the Drells, there’s nothing better. His “Tighten Up” is an eternal classic of soul and jazz, a joyous, ebullient celebration of life.
Next Sunday, September 5th, the Continental Club in Houston is having a live telethon on Facebook Live to raise money for Archie. He’s been recovering from a stroke earlier this year and is excited about visiting with his friends and fans at the Continental Club Houston on Sunday, September 5 from 2 to 5 pm.
Donations either online or at the door for Archie’s medical expenses are both encouraged and greatly appreciated. Suggested minimum donation is $10 but listen, donate a hundred bucks. If you’re a music fan, you owe it to the universe.
I’ll have more on this during the week. Archie, we’re there for you!
