Anita Baker

Fri., Nov. 16, 8 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

Singer songwriter Anita Baker was born in Toledo and grew up in Detroit. She began her career singing in nightclubs when she was only 16 years old. Baker found herself in a group called Chapter 8, which toured before securing their record deal. Ultimately the group was dropped when Arista bought the group's former label as they felt that the group had very little potential with Baker as the lead singer. She worked odd jobs until she was convinced to embark on a solo career. That solo career helped to shape the sound of quiet storm R&B in the '80s and includes seven platinum albums including The Songstress, Rapture and Giving You the Best That I Got. Baker has been nominated for 18 Grammy awards and has eight wins in addition to various other awards. Baker has continued to perform over the years, but as recently as January of last year had announced her retirement from recording. She's embarking on a farewell tour set to make a stop in Cleveland for two nights at the State Theatre. (Emanuel Wallace) $59.50-$199.50

10,000 Maniacs

Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

The independent route is nothing new for 10,000 Maniacs — as their promotional biography notes, they were “the original indie band,” having released an EP and an album independently on their own prior to signing with Elektra to release their second album The Wishing Chair in 1985. But when they started laying the groundwork nearly three decades later to work on the album that would become their 2013 release Music From the Motion Picture, they were cautiously optimistic about how things might play out. They used PledgeMusic to fund the record, and when the Pledge team told them they could raise $25,000 to make the album, they didn’t believe it. But, in fact, they made that goal and then some, discovering in the process that there was still a sizable fan base out there that wanted to hear new music from the band. The band continues to celebrate its 30-year anniversary with the tour that brings it to town tonight. (Matt Wardlaw)

phone 800-801-7407

Four-time Grammy nominee saxman-keyboardist-producer-songwriter Boney James’s career has been nothing if not prolific, earning four RIAA certified gold albums and 10 CDs atop Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. (His 2015 album, futuresoul, spent 11 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Char!.) Since his 1992 breakout as a solo artist, Boney is credited with virtually creating the genre of “urban jazz,” while also becoming a major force in the worlds of Contemporary & Smooth Jazz plus R&B. On tour, playing a catalog of his hits, Boney also includes songs from his most recent album. $25 - $65
