The Commodores To Play Bossier City on August 2nd.
The Commodores are heading to Bossier City to perform on August 2nd. At their peak in the late 70′s and early 80′s they were easily one of the most popular groups of the era, extolling good vibes with a mix of funk and soul ballads.
The Commodores began as a funk soul band with hits like “Machine gun”, and “Brick House”, before opting for a softer soul approach with hits such as “Easy”, “Three Times A Lday” “Still” and “Sweet Love”. Singer/songwriter Richie departed in 1982, after a couple of slow years, the band rebounded with “Night Shift”, a tribute to R&B legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson.
The band now consists of Walter “Clyde” Orange, J.D. Nicholas (former vocalist for Heatwave, and King “WAK”, along with their five piece band known as “the mean machine”. You can see the Commodores on Saturday, August 2nd at Diamond Jacks Casino.
