For neosoul star, Rahsaan Patterson, he's defined by his voice. In fact, many Rahsaan Patterson fans can name only a few of his song titles, but within the first note from his voice Patterson is easily identifiable.
The fact is, most music lovers are fans of Patterson without knowing it, as he has written and produced for several artists including Brandy and Van Hunt. But it is Patterson's own material – and specifically his falsetto voice – that has allowed Patterson to have a solo career that has spanned more than 15 years.
The former child contestant on "Star Search" and child star of "Kids Incorporated" is all grown up now and has become a bona fide soul star.
Patterson will be showcasing his unique voice at 7 p.m. this coming Thursday, April 4, at the Dakota Jazz Club, 1010 Nicollet Mall, downtown Minneapolis.
Patterson's most recent CD, "bleuphoria," which was released in 2011, is a beautiful blend of soul and jazz with a hint of gospel and the blues. Patterson will be playing with his full band for the upcoming Dakota show.
Tickets for the upcoming Rahsaan Patterson show are $40 and can be purchased by calling the Dakota box office at (612) 332-5299 or online at www.dakotacooks.com.
