The Mighty O'Jays Headline An Amazing Night Of Music, Food, And Fun
Next Stream Radio had the opportunity to attend The O'Jays and Maurice Jackson's Independents Concert at the Taste of Chicago on Sunday, July 9th. The concert was amazing!
Maurice Jackson an the Independents wowed the crowd with their 1973 chart topping single "Leaving Me".
The crowd were on their feet from the moment the O'Jays hit the stage! Eddie Levert and Eric Nolan Grant performed their classic singles "Stairway to Heaven" and "Forever Mine". Although the O'jays were missing Walter Williams Sr at the performance (due to being under the weather), they definitely did not miss a step.
Here at Next Stream Radio, we would consider both groups "Old School" but there was nothing old about the moves and vocals that both groups brought to the stage on Sunday!
The age of the crowd varied from early 20's to as old as 80 and they were all grooving to the sultry sounds.
Next Stream's staff journalist, Danielle Williams spoke with fans in the crowd and one fan summed it up perfectly "The O'Jays are our era, they are fabulous, I love them!"
