Here’s a recycled post from the blog, shared from five years ago today!
A performance of LOUIE LOUIE by the family of the man who wrote the song – Mr. Richard Berry, who passed away in 1997.
Absolutely worth a second viewing!!
This week’s LOUIE is by the Berry Family, featuring members of the songwriter Richard Berry‘s family.
Dorothy Berry Durr, Richard Berry’s first wife is singing with daughter Pamela Berry. Richard Marcel Berry, son of Richard & Dorothy, is playing bass, with his son Richard D’Juan Berry on keyboards. The unseen drummer is Donto James, son-in-law of Richard Berry, and son of Etta James. The man with the black hat is Lucky Otis, grandson of Johnny Otis. Lucky Lloyd is the guitar player, and the male background singer is someone named Daryl, who sings with the Medallions. This performance took place on May 20th at A-Mi Hacienda in Pico Rivera, CA.
Big thanks to Richard D’Juan for sharing this clip honoring his granddaddy!
