After the show, Booker T will greet fans and sign copies of his memoir, TIME IS TIGHT.
“Booker T. will forever be known as the Booker T. from Booker T. and the MGs. But this book reveals so much more of the man.”—Bob Dylan
“Booker T. is a great producer, a great musician, and a great friend. Those three ‘greats’ together pretty much let you know how I feel about Booker. He and I worked together on many projects, all were fun—just like this book, which is as joyful to read as Booker’s music is to listen to.”—Willie Nelson
Booker T Jones is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, and arguably the most famous Hammond B3 player in history. As leader of the legendary Booker T and the MGs, this pillar of soul music collaborated with Otis Redding, Albert King, and others during his tenure at Stax Records.  Since then, Booker has lent his trademark keyboard chops to and produced classic albums such as Willie Nelson's multi-platinum hit “Stardust” and Bill Withers’ “Just As I Am” featuring the hit song “Ain’t No Sunshine."  Both Booker's 2009 solo release "Potato Hole" and his 2011 solo release "The Road From Memphis" won GRAMMY Awards for Best Pop Instrumental Album.
