FANS WILL HEAR FOR FIRST-TIME NEVER RELEASED MUSIC

(Louisville, KY) Stephen Garrett also known in the entertainment world as “Static Major” made a lot of hits for artists like Lil Wayne, Aaliyah, Jamie Foxx, Diddy, Pretty Ricky, Ginuwine, Nicole Wray and Playa in which he was a member.  The Grammy Award winning artist, producer and songwriter died on February 25, 2008 at the age of 33, leaving an unimaginable legacy and a catalog of never heard music.

On Saturday, November 25, 2017 in Static Major’s hometown of Louisville, Kentucky family, friends and fans will come together to be a part of the Louisville Legend’s tribute concert. It will be held at The Gramercy, 620 S. 3rd Street.  There will be some surprise special guests attending the event.

The tribute event was created after Static’s untimely death due to a medical error bringing his life and passion for music to a stand-still. His widow, Avonti Garrett is determined to keep his legacy and passion for music and the arts alive.  She fondly remembers her husband and works just as hard as he did to keep his memory and music alive.

“Music is like breathing” a common phrase Static would say according to Avonti Garrett.  “He was so talented that he could bring someone else’s vision to life.  He was before his time and truly gifted. When you attend on November 25th, you will receive a special treat.  I will debut some of Static’s music never heard by the public.  You will be blown away because he was truly ahead of his time and I’m excited for everyone to hear it.”

The red carpet will begin at 8:30 p.m. and the tribute will start at 9:30 p.m.  The hosts for the event will be fellow member of Playa, Ben “Black” Bush, Spoken Word Artist Robin G and DJ D. Mawl.
