Known for her robust voice and rich tones, jazz vocalist Renee Manning came to fame in the jazz world as a big band singer with the Mel Lewis Orchestra from 1983 to 1989 -- the longest tenure of any vocalist associated with the organization. She's since performed with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Sir Roland Hanna, Mark Murphy, Howard Johnson, Joe Williams, the Mingus Big Band and the Chico O'Farrill Afro-Cuban Orchestra. As a solo artist, Manning's most recent album, All Grown Up, showcases the Grammy-nominated singer's soothing, quieter side. Learn More

My husband and I had a great time with the Coomodores. A excellent gift for Father's Day. We were just talking about the Commodores and the great bands in the day, and here B.B. Kings comes with this venue. We went back stage to meet the Coomodores a nice bunch. This was very memorable day for my husband. Thank you so much!

The Concert was excellent for the price of our membership. So for that i'm very appreciative, but I must add--The concert was very short-we thought they left the stage and would come back for one last song, but they didn't come back. :(
In addition to their standout work as a group throughout the ‘70s, The Commodores also served as the launching pad for one of the top talents of the ’80s, Lionel Richie, who sang lead vocals on several of the band’s No. 1 hits, including “Three Times a Lady,” “Still,” and “Easy.” Although Richie left the group in the early ‘80s to pursue his solo career, The Commodores didn’t falter. Instead, they hired J.D. Nicholas to helm the group and came back with yet another No. 1 hit, “Nightshift,” off the 1985 album of the same name. Despite all their success in the ’70s and early ’80s, this Multi-Platinum smash single was the first to win the band a Grammy Award.
The Commodores finally left Motown in 1985 and quickly signed with Polydor, releasing several additional albums and scoring another Top 10 hit with “Goin’ to the Bank.” Although in the ’90s the group slimmed down to the core three of Orange, Nicholas, and King, the band retained an active performance schedule, giving sold-out shows to enthusiastic fans and even forming their own record label, Commodore Records. Today, The Commodores stand not only as talented and successful musicians, but as artists determined to continue their success into the future as they share their music with whole new generations of fans.
