DUNK AND BRIGHT

Jazz in the City Tribute to Donald Ransom on Thursday, July 31, 2008. It has been one year since we lost our brother,
our friend and our original keyboard player. The Blacklites did their own tribute to a great musician and a beloved friend,
Donald Ransom. Thank you for paying tribute to our brother, Donald, as we acknowledge his talent and contribution to the
music world in song. Thank you to all the city dignitaries that came out in such strong numbers to support us. A special thanks to the
SU Basketball Team for sharing the stage with us and supporting what we do!
We were so happy to see all of you there as Donald watched from above......
