VIDEO: Chris Stamey returns to Winston-Salem for centennial

Winston-Salem musician Jerry Chapman handled vocals on a cover of the dBs' "Amplifier," with original dB Chris Stamey and Hobex bandleader Greg Humphreys sharing guitar duties during a phenomenal tribute to Winston-Salem music on Friday to celebrate the city's centennial.

The concert, which took place at the intersection of 6th and Cherry streets, covered the city's musical history from the 5 Royales to Ben Folds 5. Highlights included a reunion of the Right Profile, Let's Active bass player Faye Hunter sharing the stage with Stamey for three of her band's songs, and heartfelt tributes to the late guitar player Sam Moss.
