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 continue to expand their legendary status.  The BAR-KAYS started as a ragtag group of teenagers growing up in the shadow of Memphis' Stax Records. In 1967, the teens signed on as Stax's newest band, and their potent, dynamic sound carried them to the top of the charts with their party smash "Soul Finger." The BAR-KAYS backed label superstar Otis Redding on his final worldwide tour. Following the tour tragedy, the band reinvented themselves as one of the premier acts in a genre they helped invent funk. They recorded a string of hits including "Shake Your Rump to the Funk," "Attitude," "Move Your Boogie Body," "Anticipation," "Too Hot to Stop," and many others that remain dance floor staples to this day. With their first half century under their belts, the BAR-KAYS remain one of the hardest working and most honored groups around.  Their performance will feature a Soul2Soul Revue Tribute to Stax.
