Over the course of the past month or so, the Nippertown music scene has been beset by the untimely deaths of quite a number of important players. Some worked in the spotlight; others made their indelible marks behind the scenes. None was more beloved than Albany’s own Ambassador of the Blues, Ernie Williams, who passed away on Wednesday, March 21 at the age of 87.
The evening will also feature performance by several opening bands and a number of special musical guests. Details TBA.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Williams Family to help in their time of need. Showtime is 7pm, and a minimum donation of $10 is suggested.
Come out and celebrate the music and the life of a true Capital Region musical hero, Mr. Ernie Williams.
RIP: Ernie Williams, 1925-2012
