THE TEMPTATIONS – For more than fifty years, The Temptations have propelled popular music with a series of smash hits and sold-out performances throughout the world. Their iconic hits include “My Girl,” “It’s Growing,” “Since I Lost My Baby,” “Get Ready,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “Beauty Is only Skin Deep,” and “I Wish It Would Rain,” and many, many more. In addition to winning multiple Grammy awards, The Temptations won an Emmy in 1998 for the NBC mini-series that chronicled the group’s history and was a prime time triumph. The band’s current line up consists of Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs, and Willie Greene Jr

THE FOUR TOPS – The Four Tops first Motown hit was “Baby I Need Your Loving” in 1964, which made them stars. Their track record on the label during the 1960s is indispensable to any retrospective of that decade. Their songs, soulful and bittersweet, were across-the-board successes. In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, the Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. They continue to be a hit in concert, touring incessantly, a towering testament to the enduring legacy of the Motown Sound they helped shape and define.
