Few musical acts have seen the extreme highs and lows of the Pointer Sisters. From their humble beginnings in West Oakland to the center of the pop music scene in the 1970s and 1980s, they’ve endured more than 40 years under the harsh heat of the media spotlight. Their music entertained and brought joy to millions of fans around the world, but for Ruth Pointer, the journey wasn’t always a happy one. Learn more about her story in this evening of storytelling and song. A limited amount of VIP tickets will also be sold, which includes a reception from 4 to 5:30 p.m., a signed copy of Pointer’s new memoir, Still So Excited!, and a reserved seat for the main event.
