Sun Ra Tribute Concert & Exhibition Opening: 
Saturday, February 9, 3-6pm - FREE! 

A special one-time performance of two former members of The Arkestra Derf Reklaw (percussion) and Dale Williams (guitar), playing along with Dwight Trible (vocals), Edwin Livingston (bass), Bobby West (piano) and Marcus Miller (drums).

Sun Ra was born Herman Poole Blount in Birmingham, Alabama in 1914. Dedicated to awareness and a cosmic philosophy, Ra transformed into a creative, cosmic being by the name of Le Sony’r Ra, born to the Angel Race of  Saturn.  Ra was a pioneering afro-futurist and experimental composer. His first Los Angeles performance was at Dorsey High School in 1969, just a few blocks from where William Grant Still Arts Center is today.
