The Legends & Heavy Hitters of Soul - Dr. Nick

The Legends & Heavy Hitters of Soul show was held at the Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, on August 1.  It featured Nellie 'Tiger' Travis, Clarence Carter, Latimore, Wilson Meadows, and Millie Jackson.  I love southern soul shows and was thankful to have the opportunity to attend one in the DC/MD/VA area. 
I’m writing short reviews on all the performers but I have to take a minute and talk about the MC – Dr. Nick!!!  As concert goers, we often don’t give the emcee proper credit.  We talk about the artists and remember the music but it’s time to spotlight the MC.  What a job they have and what a difference they make!!  The MC sets the tone for the night and controls the flow of the show.  Dr. Nick is smart, handsome, funny, has a dynamic stage presence.  He is great at introducing the groups and entertaining the crowd.  A very hardworking man, Dr. Nick is the man you want to see at the show!  Thank you Dr. Nick for making it a great night!!
