Legacy Concert

We are sad in sharing the news of the passing of our Hall of Fame inductee Ben E. King on Thursday, April 30, 2015. We will remember the great legacy of Ben E. King and his warm voice behind so many unforgettable songs from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s including his hit “Stand By Me” which leaves a special memory for many of us. Our deepest sympathy goes to his family.
