On Thursday, March 18th, at 8pm, Sister Sledge featuring Kathy Sledge will be performing at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill. For tickets, click here.

After meeting Kathy and her sisters, Nile Rodgers & Bernard Edwards wrote and produced "We Are Family" for them. The song and the album went on to reach the No. 1 position on every imaginable chart all over the universe and earned a Grammy nomination. That album also spawned two additional hit songs, "Lost in Music" and "He's the Greatest Dancer." As the lead singer of Sister Sledge, she went on to sell several million more albums with many popular singles, including "Got to Love Somebody," "All American Girls," "My Guy," and "B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Baby)."

The start of the millennium was a monumental time for Kathy and her sisters. In addition to a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nomination, Sister Sledge was voted by VH1 one of the most successful girl groups of all time, second only to the Supremes. In 2001 "We Are Family" was voted the No. 2 biggest record of all time.

A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor. Upcoming shows include the Robert Cray Band (3/19), Ledisi (3/28), and the Beatles Brunch offered every Saturday afternoon at noon (doors open at 11am). Lucille’s Grill (named after B.B.’s famed guitar), located next door, features the full menu and free live music every night at 8pm. Visit www.bbkingblues.com for a list of upcoming shows at both venues. 237 W. 42nd St. btw. Seventh & Eighth Aves., 212-997-4144.
