ARCHIE BELL (AND THE DRELLS)
(Archie Bell is alive and well after a brief hospital stay, and Juanita and he thank everyone for their best wishes)
For those who say Archie Bell is on a comeback, we have news for you: he never left! The platinum-selling recording artist’s indefatigable musical journey has approached half a century, and he has an eclectic, multi-cultural, international fan base to show for it. The Houston native has garnered the respect of peers and industry insiders alike, and he is poised to take the globe by storm again by collaborations from the likes of Mickey Gilley and Roy Head. Archie’s 1968 mega-hit “Tighten Up” is one of many dance tunes popularized by him and his band “The Drells,” which captivated the music world when he was a teenager. He has garnered the respect of peers and industry insiders alike, and if he has anything to say about it, “the best is yet to come.” In addition to new music, Archie has planned a plethora of live shows and television appearances for 2021.
