If the name Tony Williams doesn’t ring an immediate bell, his voice probably will. Williams has performed with numerous hip-hop and R&B artists including Jay-Z, Nas, Rick Ross and Kanye West. In fact, Williams’ recent performance on West’s “All of the Lights” earned the vocalist his fourth Grammy.
Williams will be at the Loft Theatre in Dayton on July 20th to headline Oral Funk Poetry’s latest installment of “The Signature: A Poetic Medley Show,” This time around the theme is Poetic Soul Fusion and Fyah’ Stahtahs will play live jazz, funk, R&B and neo-soul music in addition to Williams’ performance.
Also on the bill is international poet I Am Tasha Jones, who’s opened for Lauryn Hill’s Moving Target tour and has performed with Erykah Badu. Columbus based poet Williams Evans will emcee the evening.
The show is 9-11pm on July 20th. Tickets are available through Ticket Center Stage’s website.
