Roscoe Robinson & Eli "Paperboy" Reed to Share the Stage at Rockwood Tonight
Roscoe Robinson and Eli “Paperboy” Reed will play a special joint show at New York’s Rockwood Music Hall this evening. The performance will take place in the club’s Stage 2 performance space.
“For one night only, I’ll be performing with one of my great inspirations, Soul and Gospel music legend Roscoe Robinson,” Reed says. “Roscoe has been a mentor to me since we first met in 2007 and he’s a true titan of American music. He first started recording in 1950 with Gospel group the Southern Sons and went on to record with both The Five Blind Boys of Mississippi and Alabama among other Gospel groups. In 1963 he made the switch to R&B with the hit ‘That’s Enough’ and his career took off from there. The show starts at 10 PM and we’ll be doing a mix of songs from both the Gospel and R&B sides of Roscoe’s career.”
The show is slated to start at 10:30 PM.
