“Pray For Doctors” is alto saxophonist Rie Oguchi's score for an imagined medical drama, featuring Oguchi's quartet playing a mix of jazz, funk, and fusion. Oguchi, a doctor before she came to Berklee, used her past work experience as an inspiration for her composition process.
Daniel Gonzalez, multi-instrumentalist and producer from Mexico City, will be performing originals for the first time at Berklee, with a special blend of funk/electro-rock styles, plus an eclectic selection of songs covering Daft Punk, Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd, and more.
The timeless appeal of the Spinners remains strong several decades after this soulful R&B powerhouse scored hits like “I’ll Be Around,” “Rubberband Man,” and “One of a Kind (Love Affair).” Over the years, the Spinners have acquired six Grammy nominations and have performed twice during the awards ceremony. They have also performed for presidents and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Tavares, another long-running R&B group that delivered a string of hits in the ‘70s (“Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel,” “That’s the Sound That Lonely Makes,” and others), will open. Tavares scored its first hit with “Check It Out” in 1973 and soon began appearing regularly on the R&B and pop charts. Tavares continues to bring an incredible energy to its performances. Don’t miss this this soul-powered show!
