LaVell Williams's birthday is tomorrow, Saturday, February 23rd. In honor of him we present this performance.
LaVell died Saturday, October 27th, 2018. The next week we asked The Gabriel Brass Band to perform a tribute to Williams on the Blue Bird Inn Stage at Light Box Performance. The Gabriels are a family filled with musicians with deep neighborhood connections near the Blue Bird Inn on Scotten. It was an honor to have them pay tribute to our dear colleague and friend LaVell as they took part in our larger community engagement strategy for the Blue Bird redevelopment project.
