Danceability has always been a crucial part of pop music throughout the ages, but which decade -- the '80s or the '90s -- had the songs that can still make modern feet move? That very question will be answered in one night at The Fillmore as Biz Markie and several top cover bands curate a stream of hits from both the '80s and '90s. Markie, a beatboxer and rapper known for his 1989 top 10 song "Just a Friend," plays host and DJ while '80s cover band The New Romance and '90s cover band Here's to the Night open and close the lineup with expert renditions of your favorite dance-worthy songs from their respective eras. Hosted by HOT 99.5, Washington, D.C.'s Top 40 and pop radio station, The Fillmore Flashback will prove once and for all which decade had the best tunes. Learn More

It was a fine show. His voice seemed to be great in shape , not like the last time i saw him three yrs ago .He talked a fair amount between songs ,which i found amusing. The band was also great, bunch of young guys who had there chops.Overall a very enjoyable evening.
Leon Russell played on, produced, arranged, and wrote some of rock and roll’s most successful and important records. George Benson’s cover of “This Masquerade” written by Leon was the first song in music history to occupy the number one spot on the jazz, pop, and R&B charts. “This Masquerade” also won “Record of the Year” and a Grammy in 1976. He released five Gold Albums and had a hand in many other chart hits including “Superstar,” and a “A Song For You.”
Leon was instrumental in some of Joe Cocker’s biggest hits, including, perhaps, the defining song of Joe Cocker’s career, “Delta Lady,” written by Leon. The Carpenters struck gold with Leon’s song “Superstar,” Ray Charles covered “A Song For You,” and B.B. King covered “Hummingbird.” Leon Russell is pop music’s most anonymous big shot.
