Minnie Riperton Tribute | July 12th | Grand Performances

ADVENTURES FROM PARADISE
A Tribute to Minnie Riperton
July 12th | Grand Performances | 8PM


On Saturday, July 12th, in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, The Decoders will be joined by a 20-piece ensemble that will include very special guest vocalists to celebrate the life and music of female soul icon Minnie Riperton. The event is entitled Adventures From Paradise and will feature a live remixing and reinterpretation of her music, which has never been done before.

This unprecedented concert will be honoring contributors to her music such as Richard Rudolph (her husband and co-writer) Leon Ware, Charles Stepney and the psychedelic soul sounds of his multi-racial 60’s super group The Rotary Connection (of which Minnie was also a part of), as well as highlighting her work with Stevie Wonder and other great producers/songwriters like Stewart Levine and many more.

July 12th marks the date of her transition into the infinite. Falling victim to breast cancer at the young age of 31, Minnie spent her last days on earth in Los Angeles; paying tribute to her musical greatness in the last place she called home is an honor which The Decoders do not take lightly. It will be a magical night under the stars at Grand Performances, a historic outdoor live music venue in downtown LA’s California Plaza. The event is free, all ages and open to the public.

The Ensemble:
Todd M. Simon – trumpet, flugelhorn, music director
Adam Berg – keyboards, music director
accompanied by:
Blake Colie – drums
Eugene Brandon Owens – bass
Patrick Bailey – guitar
Tracy Wannomae – tenor, alto sax
