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."

We very much enjoyed the guitarist. Excellent as both a player and a singer. Less so, the female vocalist who, while a quite capable singer, seemed to do a lot of upper register squealing. The venue is large with tables set lengthwise against the stage but a noisy restaurant section was annoying and interfered with our enjoyment of the music.
This show will take place in Lucille's Bar & Grill, located inside B.B. King Blues Club.
