On March 11 the Isley Brothers gave a performance at the Seneca Events Center inside the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino.
Performing to a packed house with Ron Isley providing the vocals, the Brothers gave a career spanning performance that included songs that dated back to the beginning. At 70 plus years, Ron Isley proved that he and the band have still got it and with the exceptions of a couple of technical issues, they gave a flawless performance.
After opening the show with “Fight the Power that Be”, the Isley Brothers performed for the next hour and a half with a set list that included “Who that Lady”, “In Between the Sheets”, “Foot Steps in the Park”, “Love the One You’re With”, “For the Love of You”, “Shake it Up Baby”, “Hello It’s Me”, “Don’t Change”, You All Need”, and “Summer Breeze”.
Candy – Ron’s wife and on of the three sister backup singers – performed “Jesus Loves Me”.
During the show dancers also performed on stage; providing some beautiful movement to go along with the songs.
There is an old expression that says to always leave them wanting more..and the Isley Brothers did just that. They left the crowd clapping and cheering for more as the house lights came up and they filed out of the Events Center.
