West 21st Street and Surf Avenue., Coney Island, Brooklyn


The great ones endure, and Gladys Knight has long been one of the greatest. Very few singers over the last 50 years have matched her unassailable artistry. This seven-time Grammy winner has enjoyed #1 hits in pop, R&B and Adult Contemporary, and has triumphed in film, television and live performance.

The Commodores once featured the smooth vocals of Lionel Richie. During the time with Lionel, The Commodores scored hits with the ballads “Easy” and “Three Times a Lady.”  They are also known for their memorable funky hit “Brick House.”
