Dance Lesson at 6:30, Live Music at 7:30

For generations of music fans, Soul Train epitomized the spirit of peace, love, and soul. Horn legends Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Wesley—the architects of funk as we know it through their time with James Brown, the J.B.’s, and Parliament-Funkadelic—will get you on the good foot with hit after hit featuring guest vocalists Martha High and Fred Ross. The irrepressible Biz Markie will spin classics accompanied by vintage clips from the show while original Soul Train dancer Tyrone Proctor leads the dance line for this 40th-anniversary family reunion of the hippest trip in America.
