Cellis Memorial Update



Here’s some updated information for area reggae music fans and supporters who knew Satta’s Ed “Cellis” Skinner, who died last week.

As previously mentioned, his memorial service is at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (1349 W. 78th St.) at 1 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, April 2. After that, from 4-6 p.m. the family will receive visitors at the B-Side Liquor Lounge (2785 Euclid Heights Blvd.) Starting at 9 p.m. at the B-Side, there will be a benefit concert to raise money for Skinner’s family, with the Prayer Warriors and others.

At 11:30, the benefit will move upstairs to the Grog Shop (a previously booked show prevented the entire evening from taking place there), where Outlaws I & I, UAB and various members of Satta’s circle of musicians will perform. —Anastasia Pantsios
