Music Through the Decades

Ticket Distribution for “Music Through the Decades”
At ASU-Newport to Begin Monday

NEWPORT (Ark.) 1/28/2016 – Ticket distribution for Arkansas State University’s
2016 Black History Month performance, “Music Through the Decades,” will
begin Monday, February 1.  The concert, featuring G3, will feature music
from many of the African-American artists whose music helped shape America.

The concert is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 20 at 7:00 p.m., and although
admission is free, it is a ticketed event.  Tickets are limited to four per
person, and may be obtained by logging on to tickets.asun.edu or visiting
the ASUN Business Office on the Newport campus.

Back by popular demand, G3, under the direction of Garry Goin, wowed a
sellout audience in 2015 with their “Tribute to the Music of Stax Records.”
Music fans can expect the same high-energy, awesome male and female vocals,
first-rate sound and a vast array of the music they love from many of
America’s most influential artists, including Ray Charles, Muddy Waters,
Aretha Franklin, The Supremes, Otis Redding, Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson,
Earth Wind & Fire, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige and Bruno
Mars.

Goin honed his chops playing in groups that played everything from Jimi
Hendrix to Roy Clarke to Earth Wind & Fire, eventually settling in Ft.
Lauderdale, where his band backed Sly Stone.  After nearly a decade in
Florida, Goin moved to Memphis, where he currently resides and where he met
Grammy-winning producer, composer, and all-around music legend David Porter,
who has served as a mentor and partner in Goin’s growing career as a
performer, producer, and songwriter. When he’s not performing with G3, Goin
might be on the road with jazz genius Kirk Whalum or in the studio with
Justin Timberlake.  Goin and G3 also serve as the house band for the NBA
Memphis Grizzlies
