He is so talented it seems effortless that he can create the sultry atmosphere and make you soon in his expressions. The band and back up singers were very tight as well.... continued

Excellant vocalist,but he sang every song with his eyes closed. Food was great. Sitting at BB King is always tight.They pack you in the venue like sardines. Overall good show for the price.

Description

Rahsaan Patterson is blessed with the ability to effortlessly blend gospel, blues, jazz and soul, often all within the same song. Rahsaan’s gift for creating organic soul is undeniable and his music possesses a heartfelt sultriness and full-bodied sensuality that’s been missing from R&B since the 70s. 

As a singer/songwriter/producer, Rahsaan consistently redefines himself and his music by reaching beyond the boundaries of soul music and by embracing his musical passions to arrive at a sound that is uniquely his own. A lyrical poet of the first order and leader in the Neo Soul movement, Rahsaan Patterson doesn’t take a commercial approach to creating his work, and as a result, Rahsaan is known for making music that is not only soulful, but enduring.

Rahsaan has written hit songs for Tevin Campbell, Chico DeBarge, Christopher Williams, and Jody Watley. He collaborated with producer Keith Crouch to write the triple-platinum selling Baby, which reached #1 on the national charts, and became the flashpoint of Brandy’s multi-media career.
