Philly: Ledisi + Eric Benet @ the Keswick Theater, June 24, 2012

Philly: Ledisi + Eric Benet @ the Keswick Theater, June 24, 2012By now you all know just how big a fan Soul-Patrol.com is of Ledisi. In fact we have been fans of hers for over a decade. We have reviewed her live shows all over the contry, in NYC, Philly, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Cleveland and elsewhere! If you have never seen her live and you live in the Philadelphia area, I would certainly urge you to do yourself a favor and go check her out this Saturday night at the Keswick.

I was first introduced to Ledisi's music by our NYC Coordinador Cheryl Russell, after she saw Ledisi @ SOB's in NYC back in the late 1990's. Here is a review that Cheryl wrote of a 2007 Ledisi show.....(Bob Davis)

Review of Ledisi & Summer Johnson at the South Street Seaport Pier 17 on 7/26/07

First, I have to say "Thanks so much" to my niece Tonya, April, Denise, Kim, Sandy & friend (Sandy, sorry I couldn't find you after the show!!), and Mike for coming out last night. I can't do this without the support of my family, friends and Soul-Patrollers!!!

The show was given my 98.7 Kiss FM. Two of the Kiss FM's DJs came out and did their spiel which went on a little too long for me. Show was supposed to start at 7 p.m. and around 7:20 p.m. the DJ came out and started reading the intro for the singer. I'm saying to myself that sounds like she's introducing Ledisi. Turns out Summer Johnson didn't show, so we started and ended with LEDISI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ledisi came out and started with the intro song from her new cd, "My
name is . . . Leddy's Theme". Say it with me, L -E-D-I-S-I!!! At this
point you were painfully aware that the sound system sucked! There was too much bass and Ledisi's mic was too low. Ledisi was able to compensate because she has such a powerful voice. She sang (not in this
order) "Get Outta My Kitchen", "My Sensitivity", "Take Time", 'Hold on to Love", "Devotion", "Alright". The one song I was hoping she would sing - she did (with only a guitar to accompany her) - was her amazing version of 'Yesterday". She could have walked off the stage and I'd have been fine, cause I was done after that. I think I missed a song or two here (girls, help me out). Three of my friends had never heard of Ledisi and they were blown away by her performance! Three new converts
- LOL!

Her band was great and the backup singers had great voices also (future stars). Ledisi has amazing stage presence, plus she & her band always look like they're having fun! Ledisi is so down to earth and grateful for her fans and the things that have brought her this far. She actually bowed down and thanked the fans! Humble is the word that comes to mind. At the end of the show, I managed to get back stage to speak with Ledisi. She is truly excited about having signed with a major label (Verve) and the release of her new cd "Lost and Found". Soul-Patrol and Ledisi are going to try to work out something for you Soul-Patroller's at the release party on 8/31 at the Highline Ballroom. So . . . stay tuned!

Overall, even though the sound system sucked, it was a great free outdoor concert. Aahh, the joys of summer and the beauty of music!!!

Peace,
