In the the early 1970s, Al Bell was a driving force in making Stax Records the second-largest African-American-owned business in this country. And while Stax might not be as famous as Motown Records, the label's influence on the music industry is still being felt.

 

Bell, 74, is one of the special guest speakers Sunday at the National R&B Music Society's fourth annual black tie gala fundraiser, dinner, dance and awards ceremony at Resorts Casino-Hotel in Atlantic City. The songwriter, producer and record executive will talk about supporting soul music and bridging the gap between old-school R&B artists and the acts of the 1990s and 2000s.

The vocal group Tavares left a mark on the music world with success in the pop, dance and R&B genres.  The group will be celebrated for its contributions to R&B during the National R&B Music Society's Black Tie Gala & Award Ceremony on Sunday at Resorts Casino Hotel. Tavares - a family act made up of brothers - is one of more than a half dozen performers who will be honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards, including The Delfonics and the Legendary Ladies of Skyy.  "It's a great honor. It shows that we've been in the business this long, and we're being recognized as a working group, and a group that's just survived this long to begin with," Pooch Tavares said. "It's tough to survive in this world today, especially in the music business. We're still hanging in there." I’m a great place.

Vannessa Jordan, of Galloway Township, wants to use Atlantic City's abundant entertainment history to generate money for the city. The president and CEO of the National R&B Music Society Inc., Jordan wants to build a multi-million dollar national R&B museum in Atlantic City. She started a petition online to show there is support for the project locally and worldwide. Since she launched her petition drive in January, Jordan has garnered 629 of the 10,000 signatures she wants to obtain.

But the 51-year-old isn't waiting to obtain the signatures before moving ahead. She's currently waiting for a finished blueprint of the rhythm and blues museum and plans to approach the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority with her idea before Memorial Day weekend.
