Clyde Stubblefield Tribute
Mon March 20 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Featuring the Clyde Stubblefield All Stars
The Clyde Stubblefield All Stars will be paying tribute to the late great Madisonian and the “Original Funky Drummer” Clyde Stubblefield who passed away on February 18, 2017.This will be our second tribute. The band will be performing all of Clyde Stubblefield’s hits with James Brown and performing original songs from some of his original album releases. Many special guest drummers and musicians will be scheduled for each tribute.
The Clyde Stubblefield Tribute moving forward will be a monthly fundraiser for the MAMA Clyde Stubblefield Scholarship Fund. There will also be copies of the recently released Clyde Stubblefield Scholarship Fund CD, DVD’s and other merchandise available for purchase at each Tribute.. All of proceeds from the sales of merchandise will go to support the Madison Area Music Association Clyde Stubblefield Scholarship Fund, which will help support Madison area youth going on to study music in college. The scholarship fund will insure Clyde Stubblefield’s legacy will live on for many years to come. The MAMA’s are hoping to make the first scholarship award at this year’s MAMA award show. The goal for fundraising (Endowment Status) is $25,000. We have raised about 30% of our goal through Funky Monday Happy Hours and the last Clyde tribute on February 27, 2016..
