Pala CA— Pala Casino Spa & Resort is excited to announce The BAR-KAYS, The Original Lakeside and The Ladies of SKYY are bringing an evening of funk, soul, rhythm and blues to Pala Casino. The performance will be held at the Pala Events Center on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 7:30pm. Tickets will go on sale Friday, November 29, at 10:00am

About the Bar-Kays

Fire, smoke, and vibrant costumes are just part of what’s in store for audiences these days at a typical stage performance by funk and soul pioneers the BAR-KAYS. Spontaneity and excitement have been a trademark of the Memphis-based group ever since its inception in the mid- 1960s. Today, the BAR-KAYS have reloaded their high-energy act and are ready to guide whole new generations onto the dance floor with a reinvigorating lineup.

The new, reloaded BAR-KAYS is just the latest manifestation of a band that has reinvented itself several times over its 50-plus year career.

With a career total of 29 albums including 5 gold and 1 platinum, 40 single releases and 20 top ten singles and albums, the BAR-KAYS with the strong support of Johnny Stinson (Stinson Industrial) can expect to add to those figures and expand on their legendary status.

About The Original Lakeside

Lakeside’s Fantastic Voyage has entered its fifth decade, and the Dayton, Ohio-based funk group is without a doubt one of the most enduring musical forces to ever capture the public’s eclectic fantasy. Reminiscing the exciting earlier years, the group made noise for the first time with the release of their self-titled debut album and first single on the project “If I Didn’t Have You.” From that point forward, their star continued to rise and led to their soulful rendition of “Shine On” on the hottest-running dance shows on music television, Soul Train and American Bandstand. They soon entered partnership with Solar Record’s Dick Griffey, who was enjoying success with a number of headlining acts and, in 1978, released their next album Shot of Love, a saucy smorgasbord of tunes written by band-members with the smash “It’s All The Way Live.” The tune charted at #4 on R&B Charts and can be heard on air-waves to this day — 2019.

The Original Lakeside band is without question a promoter’s favorite, and followers the world over enjoyed their featured story on the TV series Unsung. Lakeside was also honored at The National Museum of African American History and Culture in the nation’s capital.

About Ladies of SKYY

The Ladies of SKYY, Denise, Dolores and Bonné Dunning, are the original female vocalists of the hit R&B/Funk band SKYY.  With a musical career that spans more than 40 years, the sisters are more vibrant than ever.  Continuing the legacy of SKYY’s music with their dynamic and engaging live performances, they national and international audiences alike.

The Ladies of SKYY have the distinction of being one of the dwindling number of female singing groups with all original members still intact.  With a musical career that now spans four decades, The Ladies of SKYY have earned their rightful place as one of the founding females of funk, R&B, dance, disco and hip-hop music.
