    Stax & Chess Records Recording Legend and Soul Star Harvey Scales, of Harvey Scales and the Seven Sounds not only co-wrote the FIRST Platinum Record in Music History, but is believed to be the Soul Man portrayed as Otis Day and The Knights in movie Animal House, as John Belushi went to UW Whitewater, which was known to be a haven for toga parties and a regular stomping ground for this legend still touring today. A staple in the midwest, Scales has not recently performed in CA. He has been seen in Brooklyn, Italy, and where this top notch performer is in demand. DO NOT MISS this once in a lifetime soul performance by the legend who is one of the last remaining cast members found in movie Soul Man. He co-wrote mega hit FIRST PLATINUM Disco Lady 1976 as sung by Johnnie Taylor, I Can Do Bad All By Myself sung by Jesse James, Love-itis covered by J. Geils Band, and has been sampled by Beastie Boys and even rumoured to have been sampled by Bruno Mars. His own hits revered as soul nuggets today will be heard August 12th 2013 only at Sweetwater in Mill Valley. Also on hand will be another song legend Lester Chambers, soulful chic vocalist Princess McCrary from Atlanta, and soprano diva Bibi Adell who has been with The Seven Sounds since 2009. Show also features other Bay Area performers and is worth triple the amount to see Scales alone. Mark your calendar today.

    Visit George’s Nightclub Saturday, November 12, 2011 for a rare opportunity to experience the bluesy evocation of what Tulsa World calls “the world’s great soul singers” and become one of Lester’s congregants in his version of “rock ‘n roll church”! The night will begin with Big Cat Tolefree & The Hipnotics, from the inner-city limits of beautiful Oakland, California. Big Cat and his Hipnotic Band has single-handedly transformed the West Coast blues and soul sound with his trend-setting music and vocal style. He’s earned “New Blues Artist of the Year”, “Male Blues Vocalist of the Year” and Europe’s “Best Traditional Blues Artist” all in one amazing year. His traditional "Night Train" song continues to top charts from coast to coast, including international spins.
