Just before Mother’s Day, a trio of legendary R&B acts sends sweet harmonies and love-drenched lyrics soaring up to the barrel-vaulted ceiling of Boardwalk Hall. Charlie Wilson first ignited dance floors and gave men the confidence to unbutton one more shirt button with funk outfit The Gap Band, who authored hits “You Dropped a Bomb on Me” and “Burn Rubber.” Recent years have found him collaborating with and revered by a newer generation of musicians such as Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, and the Black Eyed Peas. He’s also stayed busy crafting solo albums, including the Grammy-nominated Uncle Charlie and 2010’s Just Charlie.
Patti LaBelle commands the stage with a grace seasoned by half a century in the industry and a score of albums released on her own and with iconic trio Labelle. Her mega hit “Lady Marmalade” has topped the Billboard Charts twice, in 2001 when it was remade for Moulin Rouge! and in 1975 when Pattie first coaxed listeners with its famous refrain: “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?” or “Do you want to build a pillow fort with me?” After years of harmonizing with New Edition, LSG, and other R&B outfits, Johnny Gill, the evening’s third crooner, recently stepped back into the spotlight with the 2011 album Still Winning, capped by the piano-driven single “In the Mood.”
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon’s mobile app.
