Its sure to spark fond memories and be an amazing night for fans who first enjoyed the Soul and R&B genres decades ago.”
Philly soul favorite THE STYLISTICS will kick off the show. This enduring group enjoyed twelve straight Top 10 hits from 1971-1974, including You Are Everything, Break Up to Make Up, and You Make Me Feel Brand New.
THE TEMPTATIONS REVIEW features Dennis Edwards, the first new Temptation to join the group after their “Classic 5″ days, replacing David Ruffin as lead singer. During his tenure with the group Cloud 9 and Papa Was a Rollin Stone won Grammys.
THE DELFONICS, Known for their sleek, soulful Philadelphia sound, this trio has been performing for nearly 40 years. Their first chart topper, La La Means I Love You, was released in 1968, followed by hit singles including You Get Yours, Ill Get Mine, Im Sorry, and Ready of Not. In 1971, the group received a Grammy for the single Didn’t I.
Paced by the impassioned lead vocals of Cuba Gooding during their prime hit-making years, the MAIN INGREDIENT, best known for the 1972 classic Everybody Plays the Fool, released many other fine singles in the early 70s. Founded in Harlem in 1964 as the Poets (with a different line up), they later became the Insiders, and permanently became the Main Ingredient in 1966
Rounding out the impressive bill is Detroits ENCHANTMENT whose 1976 debut album “Enchantment” scored two Number 1 R&B hits, Sunshine and Gloria. It’s You that I Need was their third consecutive #1 hit, and their single Once Upon a Dream was certified Gold.
