Barry White Show Comes to Town

The Barry White Show is an extraordinary homage to one of the world’s greatest singer-songwriters and showmen. The German weekly broadsheet Die Zeit wrote in a review, “Get yourself ready for a night of love. This concert is like a dream date.” The Barry White Show will be staged at Warsaw’s Kongresowa Hall Dec. 28.

Barry White was born in Galveston, Texas, in 1944 but grew up on the mean streets of south Los Angeles. At 17, he spent four months in prison for stealing $30,000 worth of Cadillac tires. When he got out, he turned his back on gang life and devoted himself to his driving passion, music.

White started out performing in various groups before focusing on solo work and songwriting at the end of the 1960s. This sent his career skyrocketing. White’s distinctive emotional bass voice and his romantic lyrics earned him the moniker “Mister Love,” although he was also known as the “King of Soul.” He formed the Love Unlimited Orchestra in the mid-’70s—originally as a backing group for the female vocal trio Love Unlimited. The orchestra released 11 albums, most of which went gold or platinum.

The Barry White Show is dedicated to this brilliant artist and his music. Barry White’s greatest hits are sung by Eric Conley, the only artist on earth to have received the blessing of White’s widow, former Love Unlimited singer Glodean White, née James. Conley is accompanied by the Pleasure Unlimited Orchestra under the direction of founder and producer James Simpson, the musician who created the ensemble to ensure that, in his words, “Barry’s music will never be forgotten.”
