Last night’s tribute to Obo Addy was wonderful – all three bands (Anokye Agofomma, African All-Stars and Maya Soleil) were kickin’ and a heartfelt audience was there for Obo’s memory and the music. I am happy to report we collected $106 for the Obo Addy Legacy fund. If you missed the chance, you can donate too at http://www.oboaddylegacyproject.org/support.html.
A shout out to photographer Gene Trent of Black-eyed Photography who was documenting the event and has posted an initial set of photos at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.544258235584398.132601.160746120602280&type=1&l=d658b83e7b
