BWW Review: GLADYS KNIGHT's Rockin' New Year's Eve at WALT DISNEY HALLBWW Review: GLADYS KNIGHT's Rockin' New Year's Eve at WALT DISNEY HALL
by Don Grigware - Jan 4, 2016

What can one say about pop/rock living legend Gladys Knight? A 7-time Grammy winner for gospel as well as R&B/pop hits, this lady at 71 years young, still rocks. She looks and sounds amazing! On New Year's Eve, Knight made an appearance at the Walt Disney Concert Hall for two concerts, one at 7 pm and the second at 10: 30 pm. I attended the 7 pm show, which was a near to full house of genuine fans, those who have followed her career since the 60s when she appeared as Gladys Knight and the Pips. A great five-piece band backed her: musical director Leon Turner; Darryle Woolfork on drums; James Davis on guitar; Joseph Green on bass; and Yuko Tamura on keyboard...and four terrific backup singers: Alexus Hoover, Brandon Smith, Porcha Clay, and JaVonte Pollard, all of whom got into the act a little bit later in the 90-minute set.
