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."

I gave this a 3 because of the venue not the singer. Vonda was absolutely spot on fabulous. The food at BB Kings could not be worse - we had the nachos and they were stale with bbq sauce around bits of meat that I wasn't sure was safe to eat. Overpriced menu - outrageous really for what you get. The seat we had was upfront but we had to crane our necks to see anything from where we were. It was painful and we only got to see a partial view of the stage being so close and off to the left. We had to watch the tv screen a lot of the time - being under the piano and mostly got a good view only of vonda's back and butt, quite frankly!
Since her record-breaking stint with Ally McBeal, Shepard has continued to produce top-quality indie singer-songwriter material, with releases including Chinatown (2002), Live: A Retrospective (2004), and From the Sun (2008). She has also performed with the Indigo Girls and The Funk Brothers and she has shared the stage at music festivals with Sting, The Eurythmics, Santana, and Matchbox 20. In addition, she opened for Sugarland's summer 2010 and 2011 tours and continues performing at her own domestic and international concerts. Her latest effort, simply titled Solo (2011), finds Shepard alone with her piano, performing many of her originals. The disc provides the perfect opportunity to get to know Shepard's earthy and accessible style and her intimate interaction with listeners. As one fan declared, "It's thoroughly refreshing to see such inherent talent performed naturally with such sunny disposition ... delectable."
