Fortunate to see @k_kweiarmah ‘s last production at @centerstagemd PHENOMENAL performances by all, brilliant use of the existing catalog to tell the triumph/ tragedy/ legacy of #Stax PLUS we sat next to a guy who played bass for Arthur Conley & Winfield Parker in the #RuJac days. Such a great night (@robbie.analog only cried 8 times) #rufusstealstheshow
