'The Mayor" playing for Aretha Franklin
« on: April 25, 2010, 02:46:36 PM »

Just to wish our resident guru Tom 'The Mayor" Roady good luck for this evening. He is playing Percussion for Aretha Franklin, in the Ryman, Nashville tonight.
Apparently it's the first time she has played a gig in Nashville in 30 years? Hope to see some pics soon.

Have fun Tom
Mick

I heard the show was sold out before the end of the day that tickets went on sale.  I think he is playing again with Aretha in May down in Alabama.

Tom,

Break a leg on this one... I saw Aretha back in 67 or 68 at the Fillmore in San Francisco, and she IS the Queen of Soul! Please tell us all about the show...

Are you kidding?!?! That is like the top of the heap!
I have been a huge Aretha fan since the 60's. I imagine getting a gig like that means the Mayor is also at the top of the heap!
Good luck Tom!
