Classic soul and R&B comes to Pala Casino Spa and Resort when Gladys Knight and The O'Jays hit the stage Sunday, Aug. 4.
Knight is a true music legend whose resume includes hits like "I Heard it Through the Grapevine (which she recorded before Marvin Gaye), "Midnight Train to Georgia," "Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me" and "If I Were Your Woman."
Her emotion filled vocals make every song a personal statement. I dare you to listen to "Neither One of Us" post break-up, it's devastating.
Knight is a nine time Grammy winner and an actress who has appeared in "JAG." "The Jamie Foxx Show" and "The First Family."
When the funk tinged bass and tight R&B groove comes on there is no mistaking an O'Jays song.
Eddie Levert and Walter Williams have been singing together since 1958. They were later joined by Eric Grant, continuing to perform around the world.
The O'Jays many hits include "Love Train," "Back Stabbers," "Forever Mine" and "For the Love of Money."
Tickets are available Friday, May 17 at the Pala box office, by phone at 1-877-946-7252 and Star Tickets for $50, $65 and $75.
