Soul and Inspiration
Thursday, September 21, 2023
Location: Orringer Auditorium, Craven Community College

“Blue Eyed Soul” is alive and well! Soul and Inspiration is a tribute to one of the most celebrated, iconic, and respected duos of all time - The Righteous Brothers.

In 2003, with the success of three # 1 hits, six top 10s and dozens of top 100s The Righteous Brothers earned themselves a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Soul and Inspiration keeps their music alive and well for those who were there when it all started and for new fans everywhere.

You’ll reminisce about some of the most memorable songs of all time. From “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” (the most played song in American radio history), to “Unchained Melody” (which charted at #4 in 1965 and went to #1 in 1990 after being featured in the movie “Ghost”) as well as favorites such as “(You’re My) Soul and Inspiration”, “Just Once in My Life”, “Rock and Roll Heaven”, “Ebb Tide” and more…

Plus you’ll enjoy the hits of other top artists of the genre in songs such as “Lady Willpower” by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap Band, “Soul Man” made famous by the Blues Brothers, “ Hold On/I’m Coming” by the great Sam and Dave as well as hits like “Wake-up, Little Susie” by the Everly Brothers.

All this was brought to life by Andy Schlosberg and John Wilson, two performers, who both feel their entire entertainment careers, to date, have brought them to this moment in music history.
