Dr. N's Rhythm Review

Dr. Paul Cimbala, a Professor of History at Fordham University who is also a rhythm and blues guitarist, is organizing his old band from Philadelphia ( who are all professional musicians) to come back him up in a classic rhythm and blues jam!

He will be accompanied on bass guitar by the Dean of Fordham College, Dr. Brennan O'Donnell, a talented funk guitarist. On vocals, performing the music of Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye and the Miracles, will be Dr. Mark Chapman
Chair of the Department of African and African American Studies.

There will be seats for 400 people and a dance floor for everyone who wants to get and boogie!

The playlist will include songs by BB King, Louis Jordan, Wilson Pickett, Sara Vaughn , Bobby Blue Bland, the IsleyBrothers, Chuck Berry, Gary US Bonds and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

This is a once in a lifetime to hear some great music, get up and dance, and support the work of the Bronx African American History Project.

Tickets, which will be $10 for the general public, $5 for Fordham students, will go on sale in September.

All are welcome to attend. In the tradition of the BAAHP, this event welcomes residents of the Bronx to come to Fordham University, celebrate this wonderful American musical tradition, and support the Project's work.
