Get ready to groove. From his early days as a Stax Records session player with the M.G.’s, to his recent resurgence, Booker T. Jones has remained an ambassador of Memphis soul music for nearly fifty years. A Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, Jones visits the museum for a night of Green Onions, soon-to-be-classics, and all your favorites.
What to Expect We’ll be outside for this one. Preferred seating is located in the first rows of the front section. Plan for dinner in downtown North Adams or here on campus at Bright Ideas Brewing, Lickety Split, or Gramercy Bistro. Then fill your cup with Bright Ideas Brewing beers and Berkshire Mountain Distillery spirits at the show.
