See the "Detroit Soul Ambassador” live in action this Saturday, August 15 at Cliff Bell's. At 72, Melvin Davis still consistently puts on an impassioned performance that covers a spectrum of his best Fortune and Motown songs. Davis began recording in Detroit for the Jackpot label in 1961, cutting the classic “I Don’t Want You”/ “About Love” before heading over to Fortune to cut “I Won’t Be Your Fool” and “Playboy.”
Davis is pushing his latest album Double or Nothing and is set to be inducted into the Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame at the Charles H. Wright Museum on October 4.

With a legendary venue hosting a local legend, you’d be a fool to miss it. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. and the cover is $10.
