ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
THE ISLEY BROTHERS:
Featuring Ronald Isley and Ernie Isley. Hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio, The Isley Brothers have been cited as having enjoyed one of the “longest, most influential, and most diverse careers in the pantheon of popular music”. First coming to prominence in 1959 with their fourth single, “Shout”, written by the three brothers, which sold over a million copies. Afterwards the group recorded for a variety of labels, including the top 20 single, “Twist and Shout” and the Motown single, “This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You)” before recording and issuing the Grammy Award-winning hit, “It’s Your Thing” on their own label, T-Neck Records.
RUSSELL THOMPKINS JR and THE NEW STYLISTICS:
In 2004, Thompkins Jr. of The Stylistics started a new group, “Russell Thompkins Jr. and the New Stylistics”, with Raymond Johnson, James Ranton, and Jonathan Buckson. They continue to tour and are featured on the DVD Old School Soul Party Live!, which was part of the PBS My Music series. James Ranton left the group due to health reasons but the group continues as a trio.
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.
