Just before Christmas, we asked people whether we should bring Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Musicians Hall of Fame inductee, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient & the greatest Hammond B3 master of all time, BOOKER T. JONES, to Beverly’s Larcom Theatre. Response was overwhelmingly positive, so we’ve done it and tickets are now on sale to the public, but they’re selling fast. Get your tickets here and don’t miss out on Booker T.’s only New England appearance on this U.S. tour. You may remember him from Booker T. and the M.G.’s, with hits like “Green Onions,” “Hang ‘Em High,” “Time Is Tight,” and “Melting Pot,”. While at Stax Records, Booker T. also wrote “Born Under a Bad Sign” with William Bell, which was recorded in 1967 by Albert King and later by Cream and Jimi Hendrix and covered live by many others. Here’s Booker T’s powerful version with his excellent touring band!
And here’s Booker T. with Gary Clarke Jr. and John Mayer live at the 2013 Rock and Roll Induction Ceremony
