Raphael Saadiq on Tour
A preeminent R&B performer, songwriter and producer of the last three decades, Raphael Saadiq reached a new level of achievement with the 2019 release of Jimmy Lee, his critically acclaimed fifth solo album. Although inspired by family tragedies and personal challenges, the songs on Jimmy Lee are filled with the verve, energy and ingenuity that have been trademarks of Saadiq's work since his beginnings in the multiplatinum-selling 90s group Tony! Toni! Toné!.
Saadiq continues to be that rare artist who combines his love and knowledge of classic soul and R&B with fresh ideas and musical innovations. These talents make him a vital artist in his own right as well as an invaluable collaborative partner for such superstars as D'Angelo, Mary J. Blige, Solange and John Legend.
Raphael Saadiq in Concert
Few contemporary artists have done as much to uphold the cherished virtues of old-school soul and R&B as Raphael Saadiq. Yet the Oakland native has also been at the musical vanguard ever since his earliest professional foray — as part of Sheila E.'s backing band on tour with Prince in the late ‘80s.
Barely out of his teens, Saadiq established himself as a uniquely talented songwriter and performer as the lead vocalist and bassist in Tony! Toni! Toné!. In the ‘90s, the multiplatinum trio became a preeminent R&B act and a trailblazer for the neo-soul movement. Through this time, Saadiq also became much in demand as a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer for a wide range of artists, including Whitney Houston, D'Angelo, Erykah Badu, John Legend and Macy Gray.
In 2002, Saadiq released his first solo album, Instant Vintage, to wide acclaim. Steeped in the influences of Motown and Stax, his 2008 album The Way I See It was nominated for three Grammy Awards.
After a string of collaborative projects that included his Oscar-nominated music with Mary J. Blige for the movie Mudbound, Saadiq released his eagerly anticipated fifth album, Jimmy Lee, in the summer of 2019. It marks another career peak with its combination of intensely personal songwriting, musical sophistication and exhilarating performances.
This was so great! The band was amazing, all of them can still sing. From wardrobe changes, to tidbits of history this show gave me all the feels of the 9os. Dwayne was SERVING in this show! Love me some Raphael, but Dwayne had me.
It was a great concert! I treated my friend for her 50th birthday and she really enjoyed it too. It took us back to the music we loved and enjoyed growing up. Seeing Lucy Pearl perform “I Wanna Dance Tonight” was a surprise treat! Loved the interesting visuals too. And the references to contemporary black history. For me, DJ Prince as the pre-event entertainment was almost as good as the main act. He put on the best hip-hop and R&B mix I’ve ever heard in my life!! Well done on all accounts.
Legendary show, great to see the guys together and celebrate their amazing music. I loved the beautiful tribute to Oakland and the Bay Area. #TownBidness
The concert was amazing. The guys sounded amazing. The music brought back a lot of good memories. I didn't know I knew so may songs or tha Raphel wrote so many songs. I have to admit it was nice being able to enjoy the concert without cellphones. I am looking forward to my next concert
The show itself was amazing. However, we were not forewarned that we could not keep our phones. I wasn’t comfortable with that as I have a young child. I would have prepared myself and my babysitter by letting them know that I would not have my phone. It made me very uncomfortable that I could not be contacted if there were any emergency.
Amazing show!!!! One of the few concerts where the artist sound JUST like the album!!
Thank you for “Chappelling” the phones. It was GREAT for everyone to be present and enjoy the music. Tony…Toni…Tone’
Easy entry into venue was very easy. Long lines for drinks and merchandise. Lines designations a little confusing. Will return again. Most of the above is what I have come to expect at all concerts.
My friends and I had a great time at the concert. Tony Toni Tone sounded awesome and brought back so many memories!!!
