This great Franklin County gospel act played late Sunday afternoon at FloydFest. Larnell Starkey & the Spiritual Seven, known internationally for their smooth, deep grooves and tight old-school harmonies, was a great Sunday choice.
The band’s keyboardist/manager, Dar Alexander, said a documentary about the S7 is in the works, with a premiere date set for Oct. 13 at William Fleming High School. The doc, produced by Two Rivers, out of Williamsburg, will cover the act’s decades-long history and includes a performance shot recently at the old Mount Moriah Baptist Church, near Bonsack.
Check out some video of the band in action, a scene that must have been nice for folks standing in a long line out for shuttle buses.
