Vocalist Prentiss McNeil of The Drifters and Bruce "Big Daddy" Wayne from Wilson Pickett's Midnight Movers head up this high-energy salute to the best R&B music of the classic soul era. Get ready to groove to hits from greats like "The Godfather" and "Queen" of Soul -- James Brown and Aretha Franklin -- not to mention Motown and Stax artists galore. From Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder to the Jackson 5 and Sam & Dave, you'll hear these hot tunes performed live on stage. McNeil performed for close to 30 years with doo-wop group The Drifters, who were known for classics like "Save the Last Dance for Me," "Some Kind of Wonderful," "Under the Boardwalk" and "Up on the Roof."

Three friends and I went to this event. We enjoyed it very much. They had a bunch of children with their parents on the dance floor, and it was great fun to watch this. The group was fine; the music they played was very much in keeping with the fact that it was Bob Marley's Birthday Bash. The food was good; the service was excellent.

Since emerging in 1996, the CCB has been tearing up the underground New York reggae scene with sold-out performances at some of the city's hottest venues. The group's ability to play a wide variety of idioms, an inspired group of special guests, and their celebration of herban life and music have earned CCB legions of inspired local fans, headline status at Boston's Freedom Rally and the Seattle Hempfest, and gigs backing diverse artists from Rita Marley to George Clinton.
