(SOLD OUT) Live at the Scarab Club: Planet D Nonet presents the music of Buddy & Ella Johnson
Sunday, May 20th
3-5pm

Buddy & Ella Johnson formed one of the most successful brother-sister teams in the history of rhythm & blues and big band music. Although their music is unfamiliar to many blues and R&B fans today, they were a top national attraction during the 1940s and ’50s. The Johnsons, best remembered for the silken ballad "Since I Fell For You," scored a number of hits on the Decca and Mercury labels, including some that reappeared in the records of Chicago bluesmen, such as "I’m Just Your Fool" (covered by Little Walter) and "That’s the Stuff You Gotta Watch" (recorded by Muddy Waters).


Join us for an afternoon celebrating their music:

 $25 general admission // $20 students, seniors, SC members
