Global Music Icons The Isley Brothers Perform at Horseshoe Tunica on Thursday, December 28
TUNICA, MISS., November 15, 2017 – Grammy Award-winning, multiplatinum-selling Rock and Roll Hall of Fame vocal group The Isley Brothers return to the Mid-South for a concert at the Bluesville Showcase Nightclub at Horseshoe Tunica on Thursday, December 28, at 8 p.m. Now led by founding member and lead vocalist Ronald Isley and his younger brother, guitarist Ernie Isley, The Isley Brothers will perform unforgettable hits from a career that has spanned more than 60 years, including “Shout,” “Twist and Shout,” “It’s Your Thing,” “That Lady,” and “Between the Sheets.” Tickets are available for $57 to $228 at Ticketmaster.com.
“The Isley Brothers are one of the longest-running and most influential acts in popular music, and Horseshoe Tunica is proud to feature them among our world-class entertainment offerings,” said R. Scott Barber, Regional President, Caesars Mid-South, parent company of Horseshoe Tunica. “Songs like ‘Shout’ and ‘Twist and Shout’ have endured for decades and still sound as fresh as ever, and this show is an opportunity to hear them in an intimate and state-of-the art venue.”
Formed in 1954 in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Isley Brothers soon moved to New York in search of a wider audience for their combination of gospel and doo-wop vocal styles. They had their first hit in 1959 with “Shout” on RCA Records, and they followed up in 1962 with their first Top 40 hit, “Twist and Shout.” A stint on Motown Records brought another Top 40 hit, “This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You),” but the band really hit its stride with “It’s Your Thing,” which topped the charts in 1969. Younger brothers Ernie and Marvin Isley and brother-in-law Chris Jasper soon joined the band, bringing elements of folk, rock, and psychedelic soul to the band’s sound. Their run of hit recordings continued through the 1970s – with hits like “Fight the Power” and “For the Love of You” – and into the 1980s (“Between the Sheets,” “Caravan of Love”).
In recent years, Ernie and Ronald Isley have carried on the mantle of The Isley Brothers, and their hit songs have lived on through numerous placements in movies, TV, and advertising as well as in samples by countless hip-hop artists, including Public Enemy, Notorious B.I.G., Ice Cube and Kendrick Lamar. The Isley Brothers’ most recent recording is a 2017 album collaboration with Santana called “Power of Peace.”
