The O'Jays with Brian McKnight

The O’Jays were formed way back in 1958 in a high school in Canton, Ohio. So naturally a casino in Oklahoma will have yet another legendary act you didn’t have a clue still tours pop into town. Accolades for the soul and R&B group run deep: Seven of their studio albums have placed in the top 20 of Billboard’s Top 200 chart and their 1973 single, “Love Train” earned the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. All of this pales in comparison to being inducted in the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. Also on the bill is Brian McKnight, who you may recognize for his singles ”Back at One” and “Anytime,” or his foray into satire with Funny or Die, “If Ur Ready to Learn.” The safest bet at Choctaw this Saturday evening is easily the probability of a great show.
