Isley Brothers, Yolanda Rabun 

When: Fri., Dec. 21, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $54-80

At age 71, Ronald Isley is a supreme study in owning what you do: Though he's the only founding member that remains in The Isley Brothers, he's led the long-running band to three charting albums in a span just longer than the last decade. And those albums have capitalized on the band's soul-thumping legacy, with 2006's Baby Makin' Music refusing to cloak its intentions—or that of its audience. Through partnerships with R. Kelly, a few amazing music videos and a mishap of a solo album that thankfully sped his return back to the band's fold, Ronald Isley remains a modern-day soul giant, or a Ron Perlman-sized soul hero with a voice that whimpers and moans. Fascinating lawyer, jazz singer and actress Yolanda Rabun opens. —Grayson Currin
