Veteran musicians spend decades on the road, resulting in honed theatrical instincts, polished dance moves, and thin layers of rubber tread on their feet caused by evolutionary adaptation. Relish the sound of well-traveled troubadours with today's GrouponLive deal: for $25, you get an upper pavilion-level ticket to see The Whispers and The Stylistics at Chene Park on Friday, August 5, at 8 p.m. (a $37 value before fees, or up to a $48.65 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees).
With nearly 50 years of experience weaving sultry melodies, R & B royalty The Whispers beguile eardrums with siren-like song. The quartet of silver-tongued crooners lets loose with heartfelt emotions and soaring melodies, delivering such rhythm-and-blues classics as "And the Beat Goes On" and "Rock Steady" with a honey-voiced smoothness that ensnares hearts and inspires lovesick bees to pen sensitive haikus on their Trapper Keepers. Veteran soul balladeers The Stylistics will also step up to the stage, lending their octave-crushing falsettos and silky harmonies to the evening's aural proceedings. Concerts take place at the open-air Chene Park, allowing night breezes to cool hearts inflamed by seductive singing and minds overheated from trying to calculate the ideal ratio of rhythm to blues.
