Pomona Fairplex (Pomona, CA)

Old School Soul Jam

It’s definitely going to be a “Boogie Night” when the L.A. County Fair’s Old School Soul Jam brings four classic acts together for one sweet night of R&B and disco under the stars. Rose Royce is the aptly-named group who broke through in a big way in 1976 with their first No. 1 hit, the unforgettable theme to the movie Car Wash, followed up by the smash singles “I Wanna Get Next to You” and “Wishing on a Star.” Funk-disco specialists Heatwave are known for their hits “Boogie Nights,” “Always and Forever” and “The Groove Line.” Soul singer Lenny Williams was the lead vocalist for the legendary funk outfit Tower of Power in the ’70s, and later charted solo songs like “Choosing You” and “Cause I Love You.” And wrapping up this incredible bill is Evelyn “Champagne” King, the Grammy-winning dance-music diva who’s still out there recording new club mixes and touring with her singles “Shame,” “I Don’t Know If It’s Right” and “Love Come Down.”
