About the Acts…
The Stylistics: The leading Philly soul group in the early ‘70s, this enduring band enjoyed twelve straight Top 10 hits from 1971-1974, 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. The act is a favorite for their showmanship, harmony and style.
The Temptations Review featuring Dennis Edwards: With his rougher gospel-hewn vocals, in 1968, Dennis was the first new Temptation to join the group after their “Classic 5” days, replacing David Ruffin as lead singer. During his time with the group Cloud 9 and Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone won Grammys. Other Temptation hits during his tenure include I Cant’ Get Next To You, My Girl, and Ball of Confusion.
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 of Not. In 1971, the group received a Grammy for the single Didn’t I.
Main Ingredient: Paced by the impassioned lead vocals of Cuba Gooding during their prime hit-making years, the group 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 became the Main Ingredient in 1966.
Enchantment: Formed at Detroit’s Pershing High School, the group turned out romantic, soulful tunes in the late 70s/early 80s. In 1976, their debut album “Enchantment” scored 2 Top 10 R&B hits, Sunshine and Gloria, both reaching #1. It’s You that I Need was their third consecutive #1 hit, and their single Once Upon a Dream was certified Gold.
