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."

The band and lead singer were great...better than Bob Dylan, himself.
Lots of hits and a few surprise songs. Band members included former
Dylan band members. They played for over two hours without an intermission. BB Kings is a great venue with good sightlines, and a sound system that doesn't blow out your ears. I loved it!
