Funk Brothers Tribute Show to be Held in Detroit

By  | 

DETROIT (AP) -- A concert in honor of the famed Motown house band the Funk Brothers is to be held in Detroit.

The show Saturday at the Northern Lights Lounge also is to serve as a fundraiser for Funk Brothers guitarist Eddie Willis.

Organizers say all proceeds from the show will go to benefit Willis, who has struggled with health issues.

Willis played on countless Motown hits. He's to take part in a question-and-answer session with the audience on Saturday.

The concert is to feature longtime members of the Funk Brothers touring band as well as the Drew Schultz Funk Machine. Former Motown guitarist Dennis Coffey also is to perform.
