Music legends Maze, featuring Frankie Beverly, The Isley Brothers, featuring Ronald Isley, and Bobby Womack transformed the Landers Center in Southaven, Miss. into "Old-school Haven" on Saturday night.
Womack came out dressed in red – leather pants, jacket and a cap – and launched into his deep bag of hit songs, including "Across a 110th Street," "I Can Understand it," "That's The Way I Feel About You," "Harry Hippie" and many more. He also did a tribute to Sam Cooke, singing "A Change Is Going To Come," and introduced his daughter, who sings backup for him. He gave her an opening to sing a song and it's safe to say talent runs in the family.
Next up was the Isley Brothers and their presence triggered a surge toward the stage as they reeled off hits such as "Fight The Power," "It's Your thing," and "For the Love of You." As always, eye-grabbing dancers performing precision moves accented the performance that was punctuated by the distinctive voice of Ronald Isley and the lead-guitar prowess of Ernie Isley.
