As the lead singer of The Gap Band, Charlie Wilson helped define '70s and '80s funk. He will bring that experience to Spotlight 29 Casino Saturday, March 2.
The Gap Band became popular with the hits "Outstanding," "Party Train" and "You Dropped a Bomb on Me." Following the band's retirement in 2010, Wilson embarked on successful solo career. He found a whole new fanbase through his work with hip hop star Snoop Dogg.
Wilson has collaborated with Snoop Dogg on several songs including "Beautiful" and "Signs." He also featured significantly on Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy."
Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are on sale at the Spotlight 29 box office and www.startickets.com for $45, $55 and $65.
