Over the course of almost two hours, the band unfurled an incredible set of Prince’s early hits from Take Me With You to DMSR and culminated with a hits package that included all of your favorites like 1999, Let’s Go Crazy, Delirious, Controversy, Kiss, and of course the classic, When Doves Cry.

The band is touring around the country playing cities from coast to coast.  This is the band that is behind the legendary Purple Rain era of one of the most influential and popular artists in modern American music, and they delivered every note.  Following Prince’s death, the band was mostly quiet allowing themselves and fans time to heal and mourn properly, but they are clearly now hitting the road, so we can all remember and celebrate the legendary song book of Minneapolis’ favorite son.

For eight songs, the band brought up Stokely to sing the vocals.  He handled those duties with respect and skill, trying hard to supply the vocals, but without attempting to steal the show.
