Event Info

Top Shelf Classics, the Bay Area’s Number One Party and Show band returns to Empress Theatre, for a soul-stirring “Lady Soul” Tribute, followed by a Soul Power Review of Funk, Motown and R&B!

The first set (featuring Ms. Wanda Diamond, accompanied by Ms. Fe Fea White and Ms. Jacqueline McBride), will channel female icons and groups from the ‘30s through the ‘60s, touch on the ‘80s and ‘90s, inclusive of iconic legends such as Ms. Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, Donna Summer and more. For highlights, Ms. Diamond will cover the brilliant career of Ms. Aretha Franklin (“Lady Soul”), performing many favorites that spanned 73 Billboard Hot 100 chart entries and 18 Grammy Awards!

For the second set, with Top Shelf’s full ensemble, the influence of Motown, Pop, Blues and Funk takes over and the whole room becomes a choreographed production and an explosive, “unforgettable’ evening. Dancing shoes are encouraged and we look forward to seeing you!

The ultimate in entertainment Top Shelf members have opened, performed, or recorded with some of the industry’s greatest icons, and have dazzled audiences nationally and internationally for decades.
