Wednesday night was a great for soul music, as Lee Fields and the Expressions and Lady performed at 2720 Cherokee.

Starting off the night were local DJs Bump and Hustle, who played a great mix of soul and funk music to get the crowd warmed up for the night. Newly-formed duo Lady, a collaboration of Nicole Wray and Terri Walker, opened for Lee Fields and the Expressions, and also later contributed background vocals to their set. I was so impressed by Lady's set, -- though it was brief -- that I bought their recently released self-titled album, and now have it in a continuous rotation on my turntable.

The Expressions performed a tight set, and were able to adapt well to the sound of both Lady and Fields, but also show off their musical talents on their own. Fields seemed to have a continuous energy on stage, and despite the rising temperature and sweat forming on his brow, he danced almost non-stop.

What made the night so special was the fact that individually, Lady, the Expressions, and Lee Fields are all fantastic, but put together on stage they make the most timid of wallflowers get up and dance, and form an unstoppable group to watch.
