Get ready to dance to classic songs from their recent Sly & the Family Stone and Aretha Franklin tribute concerts, original hits from their award-winning album, Head & Heart & Hips, and a few never-before-heard songs. Expect special surprise guests and a decade’s worth of music and fun. Tickets are $30, while they last.
