I call this mix set "Generations" because we were blessed with over 36 years of timeless music written and performed by the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame legends. It all began with the eldest three, then there were three more. They introduced Jimi Hendrix to the world when he played in their band (They even bought him his famous white left-handed guitar). Influences include The Beatles, Outkast, R Kelly, Living Colour and Justin Timberlake. Many would consider The Isleys as an R&B band, but that was never quite right. They were the great American rock band who was under credited for much more. The public would quickly identify the hit "Twist And Shout" with The Beatles. Though there was an emotional connection, they would lose sight of the fact that they were listening to The Isley Brothers. This a set of memorable hits from the 70's to now (some with a twist), and there is too much music to cover in just one set. Another will be in the works. Enjoy!
