The Bar-Kays

  • Their funky origins: serving as house band for famed soul label Stax Records
  • Which led to: a long stint backing Otis Redding and Booker T. before breaking out as their own group
  • Bar-Kays hits that define funk: “Soul Finger,” “Son of Shaft,” “Boogie Body Land”
  • Bar-Kays hit that defines, italicizes, and puts funk in boldface: ”Shake Your Rump to the Funk”


  • Their funky origins: formed in Dayton, Ohio (home to aviation pioneers and acclaimed funk duo The Wright Brothers), they started out as featured members of a band called Liquid Funk
  • Early singles displaying their love of the groove: “It’s All the Way Live,” “Pull My Strings”
  • Biggest hit you know by heart: 1980’s “Fantastic Voyage”
  • Other artists who have performed “Fantastic Voyage,” albeit without nearly as much funk as Lakeside: Coolio, Cedric the Entertainer, and the cast of Johnson Family Vacation

Arena Theatre

At Arena Theatre, nobody sits farther than 60 feet from the show. Most concertgoers who’ve squinted their ways through major concerts at other venues can attest that the in-the-round seating arrangement and revolving stage are causes for celebration. And the stars have noticed. Since the 1970s, the state-of-the-art venue has attracted a long list of legendary performers including Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, and Aretha Franklin. While their golden vocal chords ring through the stellar acoustics, fans sink into comfy seats, savor a flashy light system, and discard their unnecessary opera glasses.

Customer Reviews

I love Brian McKnight but had not idea who Lyfe Jennings was. In irritation from the crowd being unfamiliar with his lyrics, Lyfe sang acapella and I now am a fan of him and his fine craft! I am grateful for the experience.

The concert was amazing! The seats are really close to the stage even in the far back. Would definitely go back!
