Alabama Natives Concert with Rolling Stones Keyboard Artist Chuck Leavell
November 20, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Poarch Band of Creek Indians will be closing out their Alabama Natives Concert Series with Rolling Stones Keyboardist Chuck Leavell with special guest Dan Penn at the Capri Theatre.
Chuck Leavell was born in Birmingham, Alabama and at age15, moved to Muscle Shoals where he started his music career. He has been pleasing the ears of music fans for many years now. His piano and keyboard work has graced the albums and/or stages of The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, The Allman Brothers, The Black Crowes, George Harrison, The Marshall Tucker Band, Hank Williams Jr. and a long list of others.
Opening for Chuck is Vernon, Alabama native, Dan Penn. Dan has helped shape the development of southern soul music with his legendary songwriting, musicianship and production. In 1962, when he moved to Muscle Shoals, he was hired as the first resident songwriter and recruited the first house band at FAME Studios. To enumerate his accomplishments, it would take a retrospective of everyone’s favorite song lists.
The Poarch Band of Creek Indians is proud to present this exciting performance showcasing Alabama’s top artists in an intimate setting. Seating is limited to only 200 guests.
