IT'S A can’t-miss show at Barrelhouse on Saturday. Ike Stubblefield is been a prominent player with icons of American music, having played with Motown legends like The Four Tops, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Martha Reeves, Stevie Wonder, and Rare Earth. He became an in-demand rock player in the 1970s at the center of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury movement. Stubblefield’s heavy touring experience eventually led him into the studio, where he wrote, produced, and composed alongside Phil Spector, Quincy Jones, Jim Capaldi (Traffic), Larry Lee, and more.
Tearing it up on his Hammond B3 organ, Stubblefield offers an entertaining and engrossing show with his raw talent, finding inspiration in R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, jam, and more. When he’s not performing solo (he’s a regular visitor to Barrelhouse and has performed at Savannah Music Festival), Stubblefield performs with New Orleans’ own Papa Mali. A rotating cast of supporting players joins him.
Saturday, November 25, 9:30 p.m., free, 21+
