Soul and R&B singer Charles Bradley didn’t become a recording artist by taking the easy route. Born in Gainesville, Florida in 1948 and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Bradley spent a good part of his childhood living on the streets. A transformational moment came when his sister took him to see James Brown at the Apollo Theater in 1962, and Bradley was struck by the singer’s energy and stage manner. Bradley escaped Brooklyn by joining the Job Corps and then spent years moving around the country and working odd jobs, before he eventually relocated back to Brooklyn to work on his dream of becoming a musician. Bradley began performing his James Brown-inspired routines in local clubs such as Black Velvet, where he attracted a loyal following and eventually captured the attention of Gabriel Roth from Daptone Records. Roth immediately brought the singer into label sessions, releasing a single, “Take It as It Comes,” showcasing what Bradley had to offer as a vocalist. During this time he also met guitarist Thomas Brenneck, who released Bradley’s full album, No Time for Dreaming (2011), on his Daptone Records sub-imprint, Dunham Records. The singer received global acclaim for the album and toured relentlessly to support it. His follow-up, Victim of Love, was released in the spring of 2013.

The Who, one of rock’s legendary and defining bands performs its iconic 1973 double album Quadrophenia in its entirety, along with a selection of WHO classics at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday, Feb.8.

The popular English band will perform songs from Quadrophenia, which is the band’s sixth album. Founding members Roger Daltreyand Pete Townshed will be joined by Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Loren Gold (keyboards/backing vocals) and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals) to deliver an unforgettable night of classics. The album’s title is a variation on the popular usage of the medical diagnostic term schizophrenia and exemplifies the four varying personalities of the band members who created the album. IGN placed Quadrophenia at No. 1 on its list of the “Greatest Classic Rock Albums of All Time” and Q magazine placed it on its list of the “100 Greatest British Albums Ever.” The album features such classic WHO songs as “The Real Me,” “5:15” and “Love Reign o’er Me.”

The critically acclaimed Quadrophenia raised the bar for rock albums as an art form and hit No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard album chart. In a 4.5 out of 5 star review, Rolling Stone’s David Fricke said, “Quadrophenia, released in 1973, was a superior tale with more-taut songwriting; it was grounded in [Pete] Townshend’s memories of growing up angry, anguished and mod in the early 60s, and produced with the panoramic tension of ‘Who’s Next.’”
