R&B legends The Isley Brothers coming to Pala Casino

6 February 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- R&B Legends and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, The Isley Brothers, will perform in concert at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, 9 June at the Starlight Theater as Pala Casino Spa and Resort continues to build its star-studded outdoor summer concert series.

The Isley Brothers began singing together as youngsters in 1950. Ronald, Rudolph, Kelly and Vernon started as a gospel group performing at churches and religious events throughout their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. The group then expanded to include brother Marvin Isley and brother-in-law Chris Jasper.

They left their initial mark on the R&B charts in 1959 with Shout, which sold a million records and became a standard. Then they followed in 1962 with the monster No. 1 R&B hit, "Twist and Shout." Both songs were covered by The Beatles. But, it was 1969's "It's Your Thing" that cemented their fame, shooting to No. 1 on the Billboard R&B chart and selling more than five million records. It also earned a Grammy Award for Best R&B vocal performance. A long list of R&B chart toppers followed, including "The Lady (Part 1)," 1973; "Fight the Power," 1975; "The Heat is On," 1975; "The Pride," 1977; "Take Me to The Next Phase," 1978; "Showdown," 1978; "I Wanna Be With You," 1979; "Don't Say Good Night (It's Time for Love)," 1980; "Smooth Sallin'," 1987; and "Spend the Night," 1989.

The Isley Brothers have basked in the forefront of popular music for almost 50 years. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992.
