Save the date on Thursday, December 19 (7:30 p.m.) now as these legends, celebrating 60 years since the group’s first gold single “Shout,” return to the Bay area for one show onstage at The Mahaffey in St. Pete. Sing along to other soulful classics including “This Old Heart of Mine,” “It’s Your Thing,” and “Twist and Shout.”

What other group can claim that they’ve been covered by The Beatles, acted as a proving ground for Jimi Hendrix, been at the forefront of 1970s funk and served as a major touchstone for hip-hop heavyweights like The Notorious B.I.G. and Ice Cube?
