As far as his bad-ass, half-a-century-long music career, the legendary crooner has a string of hits so long that it's impossible to fit them into a single concert. The Detroit native is on the oldies-but-goodies casino circuit lately, but he still experiments on stage. He's best-known for his signature "quiet storm" style of R&B, but his most recent LP, last year's Timeless Love, was full of jazz standards goosed with strings, and 2004's Food for the Spirit was all gospel. Robinson may be 67, but his tender tenor has hardly aged, plus he's rocking the baby dreads now, and he's even got an earring.
Smokey Robinson performs on Sunday, April 22, at Seminole Hard Rock, 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood. Tanya Tucker and Michael Israel are also on the bill. Tickets cost $75, $60, and $45. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Call 954-327-7631, or visit www.seminolehardrockhollywood.com.
