    I just left his show at Legends Casino in Toppenish, Wa. There aren't enough positive words and if there were, they still couldn't describe it. This show had it all. Great musicians, great back up singers, audience participation and the most wonderful performer with a fantastic sense of humor. This show will be hard to top for me. Thank you Smokey Robinson. We felt the love.
