The performance will be preceded by a cocktail reception and followed by a live on-stage Q&A with notable “Luv Ya Blue” players such as Earl Campbell, Robert Brazile, Curley Culp, Elvin Bethea, Carl Mauck, Billy “White Shoes” Johnson, Mike Barber, Kenny Burrough Andy Dorris, Greg Bingham, Vernon Perry and Mike Renfro.
