Feinstein's at the Nikko Welcomes Top Shelf Classics
Top Shelf Classics-the one-of-a-kind Bay Area party band specializing in Motown, '60s, '70s, smooth jazz, and classic soul-will bring their tribute to Nat "King" Cole" and Motown to Feinstein's at the Nikko on Sunday, July 14 at 5 p.m. This one-night-only concert will celebrate the centennial birthday of the iconic jazz legend and commemorate the diamond anniversary of Motown. Tickets range in price from $25-$55 and are available now by calling 866-663-1063 or visiting www.feinsteinsatthenikko.com.
During the first portion of the evening, audiences will explore the elegance, sophistication, and style of Nat's music, as Top Shelf performs many of the songs that made us fall in L-O-V-E with the legendary crooner and his era, including "When I Fall in Love," "Mona Lisa," and many more. The evening seamlessly transcends through the eras with songs from Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson to the inception of Berry Gordy, Jr.'s Motown...the company that became a musical, cultural, and commercial force, known simply as "The Sound of Young America."
Top Shelf consists of five dynamic vocalists-Calvin Tillery, Dyson Tate, Michael Clewis, Olaf Pollard, and Wanda Diamond-two dancers, and a set of award-winning musicians, including Lorenzo Hawkins-Keys (musical director), James Page (pianist), Neil Stallings (lead guitar), Rick Bailey (drums), Michael Harper (bass guitar), and Vincent Lars (saxophone).
Top Shelf Classics, a subsidiary of J'LaChic Productions (founded by Johnny and LaDonna Trotman in 2003), delivers their own diversified and dynamic musical mélange. Dazzling the music scene for years, they have an unparalleled passion and enthusiasm for entertaining!
