Singer-songwriter Lionel Richie got his start in Motown as part of the Commodores, but it's as a solo artist that he really shines. He became one of the most successful male solo artists of the 1980s, earning No. 1 hits starting with his debut in 1982 with "Truly." His other hits include the Caribbean-flavored "All Night Long," "Endless Love" with Diana Ross, "Hello" and "Say You, Say Me," which also won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Now the five-time Grammy winner is following up a sold-out European run with a North American tour, including a stop at the PNC Bank Arts Center. He'll perform hits from his 30-year discography, beginning with his eponymous 1982 debut and extending through last year's Tuskegee, a platinum-selling collection that features duets of his hits with a variety of artists. Word on the street is that these concerts tend to become a giant sing-along, so brush up on your lyrics and get ready for some of the greatest ballads the '80s had to offer and much more. Sharing the stage with the five-time Grammy winner will be CeeLo Green. Known for his solo career as well as being a part of the soul duo Gnarls Barkley, Green has recorded numerous hits and is most widely recognized for the chart-topping single "Crazy" and his time as a judge on The Voice.

October 2: Irini Res
Born on the island of Chios, one of the many beautiful Greek islands in the Aegean sea, Irini grew up speaking and singing in Greek. As a very young girl she was soon speaking and singing in English. Her discovery of jazz (Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Astrud Gilberto, Nana Cayimi) combined with an aptitude for other languages has shaped her repetoire, which also includes songs performed in Portuguese and Spanish.
October 6: Classy Joint *
Classy Joint is the funkiest band in New York City and the only ensemble bringing meticulously dissected, turn-the-bass-up loud, funky music. Smell the oil from the Hammond…. mmm that’s good!!
A unique and gifted storyteller with a sumptuous tone and instrumentally oriented jazz chops, Shaynee swings, scats, croons and connects with every word. An entertainer singing music from all eras, with a mix of warm nostalgia and present-day excitement that is appealing to young and old alike.
