Hey girl, ain’t no mystery: Get your Isley Brothers tickets and see the group perform live at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino on Friday, Aug. 4, 2017 at 8 p.m.
Hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio, the original group consisted of brothers Ron Isley, O’Kelly Isley and Rudolph Isley. Ron Isley was a member from the beginning and his brother Ernie Isley (who joined in 1973) is the other member. The Isley Brothers’ earliest big-time hit “It’s Your Thing,” won a Grammy Award. It hit No. 1 on the R&B chart and No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
The band found their inspiration in both gospel and doo-wop music. They later experimented with different styles like rock and funk music. The Isley Brothers have a string of hits through the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s and if you’re a fan we’re sure you know them all. A few include “Shout,” “Twist and Shout,” “It’s Your Thing,” “That Lady,” “At Your Best (You Are Love),” “For The Love Of You” and the monster hit, “Between The Sheets.”
The Isley Brothers teamed up with R. Kelly in 1996’s “Down Low (Nobody Has To Know),” which turned out to be another massive hit. In 2001, The Isley Brothers released the popular single “Contagious.”
The Isley Brothers were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2003. The song, “It’s Your Thing” made Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
