She sang all the classics that everyone had come to hear as well as a few less known songs and some new ones thrown in. Dubbed 'The Queen of Funk', we owe many of the greatest soul records of the 70s and 80s to the legend that is Chaka Khan.
Despite being a Chaka fan for as long as I can remember as my parents played her music around the house as grew up, I was only blessed with the opportunity to see the queen live last year. And it was definitely worth the wait! With a career spanning four decades, you would think that she would be long gone from the world of touring. But to the delight of fans like myself, Chaka makes performing one of her top priorities so there are plenty of opportunities to experience a live show!
With ten Grammy Awards and 70 million record sales worldwide, her track record speaks for itself. Chaka Khan is one of the greats.
She has a handful of iconic hits and was often dubbed the queen of funk during her heyday. Although with an energetic and vibrant live show that incorporates the values of soul and funk, the nickname is very apt to this day. Her gigs are always sell out as fans who have followed the singer since her beginning pack out as well as the new fans who simply adore the classics such as 'I'm Every Woman'.
This particular track achieves huge cheers during a jazz heavy introduction and the crowd are ready to sing along with the beaming front woman. The instrumental influence of the show is fantastic as it feels like a classic jazz show as all the disco numbers have been laced with extra percussion and brass.
A finale of 'Ain't Nobody' with that warm brass is a perfect send off to the true queen of funk. She looks happy, healthy and in total peace. The band and her back up singers complimented her to perfection. I am so proud that Chaka has enough wisdom as to not overwork her instrument, that being her voice. With closed eyes, I was awed at how much each of the ladies "replicated" her "sound".
I am also a fan of Ro James. I was excited to see his name on the venue. Very talented young man. Chaka Khan gave an absolutely amazing show at the Paradiso in Amsterdam. This was my first time experiencing Chaka live and the only thing was that the show wasn't two or three hours longer. She belted very good funk covering her early career with the band Rufus and some of her solo anthems.
A great evening of ver um good music, amazing entertainers, top notch musicians and powerful energy from singer, band and crowd.
We thought Chaka was great and her band, especially the drummer, was excellent. Fun to hear some of her old tunes, but the show was too short! She came on at 8: We even look quite alike Her stage presentation is EPIC too! I would love to see more of her. And would like if she made some new music Their live show is as intense as ever with the incredible energy and musicianship that one would expect and hope for from a seasoned band with such a long musical history and they are bringing their fans along for the ride!
