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 Sleep Train Amphitheatre. 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.

I realize this was for charity. I didn't expect large portions. But the samples were tiny, far smaller than similar charity events. And they have the word "cheese" in their title, yet there was only one table with cheese. And that sample was less than the size of a typical cube and was put on a piece of bread. There were a few ok wines, such art Mt. De Oro and Ophelia. But on the other hand, there was also Barefoot and Turning Leaf. The VIP lounge was empty. The band was very good. It was a social time and parking was pretty easy. I would not go again. This is really 2.5 stars.
