Music Director and Accompanist, David Nehls encourages everyone to get tickets to this show, saying, “Ruth Brown was an R & B legend who ruled the charts from the late 1940s through the 1950s. Her hits established Atlantic Records and her success gained Atlantic the nick name “The House That Ruth Built.” A huge force in the civil rights movement, she had a massive show business comeback in later life starring in movies like John Waters’ Hairspray, TV shows like Silver Spoons and winning the Tony Award on Broadway for her performance in the musical Black and Blue. She also is a founding member in establishing The Rhythm and Blues Foundation to secure rights, royalties and protections for recording artists who never got paid in the heyday of R & B radio and recording. Ruth played all over the world and had many stops in Denver when she toured.”
