"Time Has Come Today"
Music City is ready for it's first Symposium series, and we figured we should start with a bang. We are humbled and excited to announce Lester Chambers as first guest in a series we plan to continue monthly.

As a part of The Chambers Brothers - one of the first bands to fuse blues & gospel with psychedelic rock - Lester experienced the highs of a music career: platinum records, a never ending cycle of concerts, and even an appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Singles such as “I Can’t Turn You Loose”, “Funky”, and “Time Has Come Today”, the later of which made it to #11 on the Billboard singles list, should’ve cemented The Chambers Brothers as a staple in Rock ‘n’ Roll history. However, the greed of the music companies threatened an otherwise vibrant career.
As part of the Symposium series, we will have an interview with Lester, audience Q&A, followed by a performance from Lester and Dylan Chambers. Join us as we hear, in his own words, the beginning, middle, and present, of Lester Chambers.
His life related to yours.
