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 Dramatics, 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 R.I.A.A. 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, Wattstaz, Darktown Stutters and Talk To Me.
Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes:
The Blue Notes are one of the dynamic groups that came out of the Gamble and Huff Sound of Philadelphia Family. They have been previously known as Harold Melvin and the BlueNotes, featuring Teddy Pendergrass. The group consisted of Teddy Pendergrass, Harold Melvin, Bernie Wilson, Larry Brown and Lloyd Parks, sharing creative sounds as The Blue Notes. Among their credits, numerous singles and albums achieved Gold and Platinum status “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” was nominated for a Grammy Award, “The Love I Lost” “Bad Luck” “Wake Up Everybody” are on their endless list of hits. Through the inspiration of Larry Brown and mutual agreement of Lloyd Parks, the group has added two extremely talented new members, Arthur Aiken and former member of the Delfonics, Salaam Love. The Blue Notes have gone on to perfect something that was already perfected, performing to standing room only audiences.
Hailing from Jersey City, NJ, The Manhattans sold millions of records over four active decades. They won NAFTA’s “Most Promising Group” in 1969, and in the late 70’s recorded and released the songs they are best known for, “Kiss and Say Goodbye” and “Shining Star”. Through the years, the group has persevered though numerous management and personnel changes to continue their performing and recording career.
