The Isley Brothers

As one of only very few groups, The Isley Brothers have charted hit records in five different decades, starting in 1959 with their first smash hitsingle Shout. In the beginning, the band was a vocal quartet consisting of brothers O’Kelly, Rudy, Ronald and Vernon Isley. Later on, the now-deceased Marvin and Ernie also joined. Early in their careers, Jimi Hendrix and Elton John toured with The Isley Brothers as sidemen and the band has colaborated with or influenced the music of many artists such as Rod Stewart, R. Kelly, Snoop Dogg and The Beatles. A review of the Isley Brothers’ music is like a trip down memory lane, including such hits as Twist & Shout, This Old Heart Of Mine, Love The One You’re With, Who’s That Lady and Harvest For The World. In 2014, the Grammy’s honored the Isley Brothers, along with the Beatles, with a Lifetime Achievement Grammy. Ronald and Ernie Isley are the two brothers left in the band.
