[image-1]The Charlotte-based doo-wop/R&B/shag music legend Maurice Williams and his band The Zodiacs — best known for such hits as “Stay” and “Little Darling” — were to perform the “50th Golden Anniversary for Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs” event at the Charleston Music Hall last night (Sat. Nov. 22) at 8 p.m. It was to be presented by the Beach Music & Shag Preservation Society of South Carolina. Unfortunately, early in the afternoon, word came in from Harriet at J.B. Pivots that the headliner had cancelled.

“Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Maurice Williams is ill and we have cancelled the 50th Golden Anniversary show for tonight at the Charleston Music Hall,” she wrote. “Please pray for his healing.”

No word on either of William’s main web sites as to what happened or his current condition.
