Mother’s Day Music Festival
- Years that matriarchs have been dancing at the Mother’s Day Music Fest: this makes six
- Headliners getting them going again: Charlie Wilson, Gladys Knight, and Heads of State
- How you know Charlie Wilson: as The Gap Band’s minister of funk, and through his collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, and the Black Eyed Peas
- Hit by The Gap Band that still rocks the dance floor 32 years later: “You Dropped a Bomb on Me”
- What Gladys Knight has that you might not: seven Grammys, a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a nickname as awesome as the “Empress of Soul”
- When you think of her: whenever your loved one takes an oddly late train to Georgia
- Other Gladys Knight hits you might hear: “If I Were Your Woman,” “Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me”
- The R&B hydra of Heads of State is: New Edition’s Bobby Brown, Johnny Gill, and Ralph Tresvant
- Hits that the Heads of State have under their hats: solo favorites such as Bobby’s “My Prerogative,” Ralph’s “Sensitivity,” and Johnny’s “My My My,” as well as New Edition classics “Cool It Now” and “Mr. Telephone Man”<p>
Under a 137-foot-high, barrel-vault ceiling, Boardwalk Hall’s floor has played host to historic Garden State moments for more than eight decades. The longest clear-span space in the world when it opened in 1929, the venue has seen the nation’s first indoor football game, the first indoor helicopter flight, and performances by such luminaries as the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, and Louis Armstrong. A $90 million renovation completed in 2001 ushered the space into the new millennium, updating the lighting, improving the acoustics, and roping off a section of seats for time-traveling audience members.
