Vagabond Shoes Tribute to Clarence Clemons this Saturday, June 25

Join us this Saturday, June 25 at 6 PM (EDT) for a special Vagabond Shoes tribute to the Big Man. We’ll play some of the music that inspired Clemons, such as King Curtis and James Brown, as well as some stuff you probably haven’t heard (did you know he played tambourine on a Janis Ian tune?) and, of course, his work with the E Street Band (at least as much as streaming rules allow).  If you’re from New Jersey (and who in Charlottesville isn’t?), you’ll want to tune in and pay your respects to the Boss’s right hand man.  RIP: Clarence Clemons.
