The Original Lakeside Holiday Homecoming
December 19, 2021 @ 7:30 pm$50 – $85
The Original Lakeside’s Fantastic Voyage has entered its fifth decade, and the Dayton, Ohio-based, funk group is unquestionably one of the most enduring musical forces to capture the public’s eclectic fantasy. Reminiscing the exciting earlier years, the group made noise for the first time in 1977 with the ABC Records release of their self-titled debut album and first single on the project “If I Didn’t Have You.” From that point forward, their star continued to rise and in the same year led to their soulful rendition of “Shine On,” which was performed on the hottest-running dance shows on music television, Soul Train and American Bandstand.
Southern bluesman Pokey Bear injects a larger-than-life swagger into his R&B-infused bayou soul. Similar in old-school sound and spirit to Willie Clayton, the Baton Rouge party-starter is also a James Brown-influenced soul man at heart.
