Socially-Distant Sidewalk Signing w/ Eddie Tebbe
May 15, 2021 • 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join us Saturday, May 15th from 2 pm – 3:30 pm in front our shop for a socially-distant sidewalk signing! Eddie Tebbe will be signing his book, “Sir Bone Funk: Living in the Key of Triumph”.
Music is Eddie’s way to cope with the triple whammy life has dealt him: born with cerebral palsy, developed epilepsy as the result of a fall at age 9, and gradually consumed from his thirties on by Huntington’s disease. Yet he remains friendly, funny and outrageous as he flashes his famous smile. Now at age 50, Eddie is no longer able to write or to stay out late, instead offering the short stories, a play and his poetry he’s written through the years to his many loyal friends in this inspiring collection.
A fixture on the New Orleans music scene for years, native son Eddie Tebbe has attended multiple concerts a night, composed lyrics picked up and recorded by the likes of George Porter and Paul Sanchez, and made friends with anyone and everyone in the popular clubs. He has, as he says, felt the funk in his bones.
