The Isley Brothers with KEM and Nephew Tommy
General Event Information
The Isley Brothers are an American musical group consisting of brothers Ron and Ernie Isley. The founding members of the band were Ron Isley, older brothers Rudy and Kelly, and younger brother Vernon. Originally formed as a gospel quartet but following the death of Vernon, the remaining trio launched a new career into doo-wop scoring with their first million-selling hit single “Shout” in 1959. Additional successes include the 1962 single “Twist and Shout” and the 1966 Motown single “This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You)”. Following the release of their 1969 Grammy Award winning hit “It’s Your Thing”, the family eventually grew to include younger brothers Ernie and Marvin Isley, as well as brother-in-law Chris Jasper. Accolades the group has been awarded include inductions to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and the R&B Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award.
KEM recently headlined his sold-out national ‘Intimacy Tour’ with Special Guests Musiq Soulchild & Ledisi. His latest CD, INTIMACY, debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart in August 2010.
