Sinners & Saints: Two Acclaimed Books. Two Acclaimed Authors.
Join us for this very special night with authors and musicians Larry Kaye and Jerry Zolten as they talk about their two new books. Following the discussion will be a live music performance by Code Blue, with special guest Kaye.
LENNY KAYE - Lightening Striking/Ten Transformative Moments in Rock and Roll (Harper Collins.) An insider’s take on the evolution and enduring legacy of the music that rocked the twentieth century.
“We have performed side-by-side on the global stage through half a century…. In Lightning Striking, Lenny Kaye has illuminated ten facets of the jewel called rock and roll from a uniquely personal and knowledgeable perspective.” –Patti Smith
JERRY ZOLTEN - Great God A’Mighty! The Dixie Hummingbirds/Celebrating the Rise of Soul Gospel Music (Oxford University Press.) "Great God A’ Mighty" traces the 30-plus-year career of the Dixie Hummingbirds, an African American gospel group, and their influence on both sacred and secular music. The second edition features brand new photographs, expanded historical context, and a new chapter on the Hummingbirds' trajectory up to the 21st century.
Zolten, an author, music and film producer, and screen and broadcast narrator, writes extensively about American roots and vernacular music as both communication about culture and as an influence on contemporary pop music.
