This Saturday, 3 p.m. at the Kirk Douglas Theatre
Grammy award-winning bassist, composer, and bandleader Ben Williams, along with his band, will come to Culver City for a community concert to perform his latest composition, “I AM A MAN,” which covers the range of Black American music from Jazz and Gospel, to Hip Hop and R&B.
“Ben Williams, acclaimed Grammy-winning bassist, composer, bandleader and frequent collaborator with the likes of Robert Glasper, Wynton Marsalis and Kamasi Washington… has developed a dark, righteous sound that covers the range of Black American music from Jazz and Gospel, to Hip-Hop and R&B,” event organizers said.
Guest artist, Terrace Martin, a frequent Kendrick Lamar collaborator, conjures harrowing street sounds with a lively layer of funk.
Joining them is a stellar band: Syndee Winters – vocals; Andrew Renfroe – guitars; Brandon Coleman – piano; Jonathan Pinson – drums
The concert will take place at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. Tickets can be reserved up to 3:00 p.m. on the day of the show. The remaining tickets will be available at the door at show time. Tickets will cost $20-$30.
