Albany -- A native Albanian musician gets his day proclaimed by Mayor Willie Adams.   August the third has been proclaimed Reggie Ward Day in Albany.

Ward was born and raised in Albany, and has been the lead guitarist for the national recording group the S.O.S. Band since its inception in the late 1970's. Ward has also toured with many other acts such as Chaka Khan, and Sister Sledge.

But he says coming home to Albany to release his Jazz CD "Say You Will" defies description. "It's hard to find words to explain it. It's something I often thought about, but never thought it would actually happen this way. So its a very humbling experience and a very gratifying."

Reggie Wards CD release party and fund raiser for the 100 Black Men of Albany opens to the public, free of charge at the State Theatre, tonight at seven p.m.
