Honors for Kevin Eubanks
The former "Tonight" bandleader will get a plaque on the Walk of Fame.
Germantown native Kevin Eubanks is coming home to receive a pair of honors for his first major events since he left The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last month.
On June 17, the musician will receive a plaque on the Philadelphia Music Alliance's Walk of Fame on South Broad Street, putting him in the sidewalk alongside such notables as Frankie Avalon , Dick Clark, John Coltrane, and Teddy Pendergrass.
The next night, Eubanks will join Billy Paul ("Me and Mrs. Jones"), the Intruders ("I'll Always Love My Mama"), and Joe "Butter" Tamburro (WDAS-FM, 105.3) as this year's honorees at the annual Phillies "Sound of Philadelphia" Night. They'll all get the 2010 Phillies Gamble & Huff Community Partnership Award.
