Soul music powerfully conveys mankind’s innermost thoughts and feelings in ways that its predecessor, the agnostic tunes of dialectics, never could. Let your spirits soar with today's GrouponLive deal: for $22, you get one admission, plus one drink ticket, to see Brian McKnight at the Levitt Pavilion Pasadena in Memorial Park on Sunday, August 28, at 7 p.m. (up to a $48 total value). Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Seating is located in the yellow zone (a $42 value). The included drink ticket (up to a $6 value) is good for one beer or wine at the Noor Beer & Wine Garden inside the park.
The talented Brian McKnight ignites the night in sweltering waves of soul as his Just Me tour caresses the community ambiance of Memorial Park. 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. For this special benefit, which aids the Levitt Pavilion Pasadena’s Free Concert Series in spreading music education, fans may hear hits such as “Anytime” and “Back at One” from Brian’s come-hither catalog interspersed with silky tracks from Just Me that play like the world’s most danceable marriage counseling. Prior to McKnight's performance, DJs from Hot 92.3 will spin old-school jams to loosen knees and unbuckle belts for an evening of sweet swaying and sultry, involuntary square dancing.
Ten per cent of the sales at the Noor Beer and Wine Garden are donated to Levitt Pavillions, a nonprofit focusing on strengthening communities through live music.
