I’m Still Here – it’s the name of Sonny Knight’s 2014 comeback album, and doubles as the soulful crooner’s defiant battlecry, letting fans know that Knight’s as ready as he’s ever been to bring classic R&B to audiences around the country. Fifty long years have passed since Knight cut his first single at the tender age of 17. His music career had to take a backseat during the Vietnam War, and once again when Knight was faced with the harsh economic realities of life as a war vet (he made ends meet as a truck driver for much of the ’80s). But the new millennium ignited a new fire in Sonny, and, since the spring of 2013, he and his newly formed Fabulous Lakers have truly hit the ground running, performing at top clubs around the city and beyond. Don’t miss this chance to see an old school legend do his thing when Sonny Knight and The Lakers come to City Winery Chicago.
