Timmy Thomas & The Overtown Soul Revue

Thursday, March 17
8:30PM - 9:10PM

Saxon Pub
1320 S Lamar Blvd


Lightening Has Struck Twice. Soul Legend Timmy Thomas, who serenaded the world in 1973 with his million-selling smash "Why Can't We Live Together," has conquered the world again. Thanks to Drake's beyond-obvious sample of "Why Can't We Live Together" in his monster worldwide hit "Hotline Bling," the world is dancing yet again to Timmy Thomas' groove.

Like fellow Soul Man Isaac Hayes, Timmy got his professional start in Memphis, Tennessee as a session player. Starting as a 18-year old college freshman at Lane College, Timmy laid down keyboards for sessions at Sun and Stax Studios in Memphis and FAME studios in Muscle Shoals. Timmy parlayed his session work into live gigs as a sideman for R&B legends The Mar-Keys and as full member of Gold Wax recording artist Phillip And The Faithfuls. After dropping a few records with P&TF, Timmy struck out on his own as a solo artist and relocated to Miami's red hot soul scene.
