Syl Johnson Concert Monday NIght 

Chicago soul man Syl Johnson will reunite with Memphis' own Hi Rhythm section -- which includes guitarist Mabon "Teenie" Hodges, bassist Leroy Hodges, organist Charles Hodges, and drummer Howard Grimes -- Monday night in a special concert at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music.

Johnson, born down Highway 78 in Holly Springs, Mississippi, back in 1936, recorded several memorable songs along with the Hi Rhythm gang for Willie Mitchell's Hi Records back when they all were much younger men.

Their collaborations include "We Did It," from 1972, and a version of Al Green's "Take Me to the River" released in 1975.

They've since recorded a comeback CD in 1994, and gotten back together for a few performances at the annual music geek convention known as the Ponderosa Stomp.

The show runs from 7-9 p.m. with general admission tickets setting you back $20 and Stax Museum member admission $5.
