The Last love-in: Celebrating John Sinclair's 75th Birthday




THE LAST LOVE-IN


Celebrating John Sinclair's 75th Birthday

A group of southeastern Michigan music professionals are throwing a 75th birthday bash for our beloved John Sinclair. The celebration will be held at a private home outside Ann Arbor. The date is October 1st, 2016. (John's actual birthday is October 2nd.) The goal is to be able to give John a check for a minimum of $75,000.

Perhaps no one has had more of an impact on Michigan's music scene than John Sinclair, from the Detroit Artists Workshop, the Grande Ballroom, managing The MC-5, producing and recording the Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz Festivals and all those he is still influencing today.

John has been dealing with rigors of diabetes for some time. The disease has cost him physically and making a living has been difficult. He’s very excited at the prospect of this event and would like the proceeds to go to his own John Sinclair Foundation which currently pays his living expenses in Amsterdam. 100% of the event’s proceeds will go to John Sinclair. There will be a strict accounting and a tax consultant may be employed.

Organizers involved are: Robert Jr. Whitall, Big City Rhythm & Blues magazine; John Carver of Second Chance and the Nectarine Ballroom; Dennis Hayes, Attorney At Law; Mike Griffin of Brainstorm Graphics, IDOZ, and Garden Fresh; Steve Wild of Grace & Wild Studios and Ringside Productions; Third Coast Compassion Center of Ypsilanti; and Depot Town Dispensary. All event promoters are donating their services.
