ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

THE STYLISTICS
During the early ‘70s, The Stylistics were the leading Philly soul group. The band had 12 straight Top Ten hits, including “You Are Everything” “Betcha by Golly, Wow” “I’m Stone in Love With You” “Break Up to Make Up” and “You Make Me Feel Brand New” Of all their peers, The Stylistics were one of the smoothest and sweetest soul groups of their era.

THE LEGENDARY BLUE NOTES
The Blue Notes have had a seemingly endless river of hits including “If You Don’t Know Me By Now”, “Wake Up Everybody” and “Don’t Leave Me This Way”, which Thelma Houston took to number one on the pop charts. Credited with introducing the great Teddy Pendergrass to the world, the Blue Notes are one of the most revered and influential of the Phillie Soul groups.

DRAMATICS:
The group formed in Detroit, Michigan in the late 1960’s. They signed to Stax-Volt records and are best know for their #1 R&B hits “In the Rain” and “Whatcha See is Whatcha Get”. Their disc, “Whatcha See Is Watcha Get” was awarded gold disc status by the RIAA in 1971. The band appeared on Soul Train multiple times through the 70’s and their music has been featured in the films Sunday Driver, Wattstax, Darktown Strutters, and Talk To Me.

THE EMOTIONS
A trio of sisters with a strong gospel base, the Emotions (based in Chicago) were one of the leading female R&B acts of the ’70s. Lead singer Sheila Hutchinson and her sisters Wanda and Jeanette were only teenagers when they crashed the soul charts in 1969 with the engaging “So I Can Love You,” but they sang gospel as children and enjoyed secular fame locally before signing with Memphis-based Volt and working with producers Isaac Hayes and David Porter. When Stax folded in 1975, the group hooked up with Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire, an association that led to the number one pop/R&B hit “Best of My Love” in 1977.

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, I’ll Get Mine, I’m Sorry, and Ready or Not. In 1971, the group received a Grammy for the single Didn’t I.
