The Douglass was constructed in 1921 by Macon’s first black millionaire Charles H. Douglass, who envisioned an entertainment palace for the city’s African American community. Throughout the years, the theatre has hosted stars such as Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey and vaudevillians Butterbean and Susie.

The theatre enjoys the distinction as the springboard for legendary soul singer Otis Redding. It has also seen the talents of James Brown, Little Richard, Ray Charles, Donald Byrd, Regina Carter and many others.

Today, the Douglass continues as a cultural and entertainment leader by presenting exciting programs-- live concerts, innovative satellite broadcasts, film screenings, specialized youth initiatives and community-oriented events. Make your date at the Douglass.

    Frank Blair, who spent part of his musical career working with musical greats such as Marvin Gaye and Robert Palmer, is excited to be bringing his musical tribute to them to the historic Douglass Theatre on Saturday.

    “I do these promotions from time to time and decided to do a tribute in this area,” Blair said. “What I try to do is not just focus on the person, but on the people who made the person. I try to bring in people who knew him or had a personal relationship with him. For Marvin, I’m bringing in major acts who worked with him.” Collapse
