She’s a Rebel: A Tribute to the Girl Groups of the 50s, 60s, and 70s
Thursday, November 14 | 6:30 pm
In celebration of the Apollo Theater’s 85th Anniversary, Apollo Live Wire will highlight the history and members of the original Girl Groups of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s in celebration of their contributions to American music. Moderated by music journalist and essayist Christian John Wikane, panelists include original members of some of the more popular groups. The discussion will center on their experiences as artists and as women in the music industry, their enduring impact on music and style internationally and their individual careers beyond their girl group membership.
Joining us will be Joshie Jo Armstead, former member of The Ikettes, Sarah Dash, former member of Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles, and Martha Reeves of Martha and the Vandellas.
