The Isley Brothers
For more than 50 years, The Isley Brothers have received acclaim as “the rocking soulful legends who started it all.” The iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees and Grammy award-winning artists will bring inspiring sounds of soul and classic R&B to the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts – The Mahaffey Theater on Sunday, Aug. 6, 2017 at 7 p.m. The concert features award-winning soul singer Ronald Isley (known as Mr. Biggs) and guitarist extraordinaire Ernie Isley.
The Isley Brothers started out as a gospel group and their music moved from gritty R&B to Motown soul to blistering funk. They have three top ten hits and 27 top ten R&B hits, including "Shout", "That Lady", "Twist and Shout", "It's Your Thing", and "This Old Heart of Mine".
