Soul Tymes Nine back again

News To Know
 By. Kelly Caldwell

The reunion shows continue for Soul Tymes Nine Saturday Feb. 4 when the group will perform once again at the old National Guard Armory in what could be one of the last concerts for the group.

“I have learned to never say never but each show we do now, we all wonder if it will be the last,” Randy Gann said.

The original nine members will be taking the stage Saturday night along with Mike Adcock and Barry Cole. The concert will also be professionally recorded for the first time in 40 years.

“We are excited that Mike Bailey is bringing his equipment to record the show,” Gann said. “We want it for us and our families because we never know if we will do this again.”
The group has performed two shows in the last year to standing-room only crowds and this time the band hopes it will be the same.

“We might have a smaller crowd this time but we are all stepping back in time most of our audience included.”

The band formed in 1968 and had not played together until practice began for a reunion show a year ago.

“It has given us a chance to reach back and touch the shadows from our past,” Gann said. “Not many people are able to take a step back in time like we have been able to do.”
The band has been practicing for months for this concert and has even learned a few new songs for the show including "Baby I Need Your Loving", " Girl Watcher", Boogie Shoes" and "Soul Man."

The band will entertain with fan favorites “Baby, I Need Your Lovin',” “Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying,” “Something’s Wrong With My Baby,”; and “Brown-Eyed Girl”.
Original members of Soul Tymes Nine include Greg Dawdy, Donnie Knight, Randy Gann, Bob Landers, Tom Ziglar Jr., Harold Bonner, Dan Peek , Larry Ward and Larry Dollar.

“We have enjoyed not only the concerts we have performed in the last year but also the practices in the 'old barn,' (the same barn we practiced in all those years ago),” Gann said.
The concert will begin at 7 p.m. and doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $10 and tickets will be available at the door.

The band encourages the audience to bring their chairs and get ready for another night of fun and memories.
