The talented Brian McKnight spearheads a triage of R & B's silkiest voices, igniting nights in sweltering waves of soul on his Just Me tour. With a voice buttery enough to push a baby elephant through a mouse hole, Brian’s nearly 20-year career has consistently coated the adult-contemporary R & B charts in smooth, spreadable hits. A noted songwriter, producer, talk-show host, and flugelhorn virtuoso, Brian supplants modern braggadocio for mellow honeydew in support of his new double album, Just Me. Supporting Just Brian in this triptych of manteuses, powerhouse crooner Tank opens a seductive cask to plug his latest opus, Now or Never, and lyrics-spooner Avant drops his guard with mid-tempo grooves that play like the world’s most danceable marriage counseling.
