An Esoteric Night—A Benefit Concert for Tom Terrell

On September 11, Giant Step will host “An Esoteric Night—A Benefit Concert for Tom Terrell” at the Canal Room in Brooklyn. Ndegeocello, Angelique Kidjo, and Living Colour founder Vernon Reid are among those scheduled to perform.

Terrell, a stapple in the music industry since the early eighties, was diagnosed with cancer this Summer. Like many in the music business, Terrell does not have health insurance. To alleviate the burden of mounting medical bills, Giant Step is donating 100% of the proceeds from this event to The Tom Terrell Benefit Fund.

Terrell is not a household name, but the Ft. Greene veteran has left his mark. He has deejayed at clubs and on radio stations, appeared as a commentator for NPR, and contributed to a host of publications, including VIBE.
