In one of its most anticipated shows of the summer, the Crystal Bay Casino on Tuesday presents Charles Bradley and his Extraordinaires.
“If you like James Brown (who doesn’t), do not miss this show,” Casino Manager Bill Wood said. “There are not that many traditional soul artists out there any longer and we are very excited to have Charles Bradley in the Crown Room.”
Bradley worked as a James Brown impersonator in Brooklyn before he was discovered by Daptone’s Gabe Roth. His debut album, “No Time For Dreaming,” was critically acclaimed, and in April a second album was released, the 11-song “Victim of Love.”
Nicknamed “the Screaming Eagle of Soul,” Bradley gained national attention for a South-By-Southwest performance in Austin, Texas. He went on to impress concertgoers at Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Outside Lands and the Newport Folk Festival.
Bradley has been unavailable to Tahoe Onstage. But we will continue to try to reach him for an interview before Tuesday’s Crown Room performance.
