ABOUT THE ACTS…
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. All of their hits were ballads, graced by the soaring falsetto of Russell Thompkins, Jr. and the lush yet graceful productions of Thom Bell. This enduring act is a favorite for their showmanship, harmony and style
Heatwave remains one of the most beloved groups of the 70s. That they even made it as far and as long as they did was the result of an amazing ability to overcome horrific obstacles, including the death of one member and two incidents that left other members paralyzed or severely injured. Formed in the early 70s by a group of US servicemen stationed in Germany, the band went though various changes in personnel, finally settling in England as a septet featuring vocalist brothers Johnny and Keith Wilder and keyboardist/songwriter Rod Temperton. It became the first true international dance group, with members from the US, England, Czechoslovakia and Spain. Their single “Boogie Nights,” became an international #1 hit and one of the definitive songs of the disco era. After breaking up in the 1980s, Keith Wilder re-formed Heatwave with some old and some new members in the early 90s, and the group has toured regularly in multi-act 70s shows.
Rose Royce is best known for several hit singles during the 1970s including “Car Wash,” “I Wanna Get Next to You,” “I’m Going Down”, “Wishing on a Star”, and “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore”
PEACHES & HERB
Vocal duo Peaches & Herb, originally comprised Herb Fame and Francine “Peaches” Hurd Barker. Herb has remained a constant since its creation in 1966, while seven different women have filled the role of "Peaches. Hits include “Shake Your Groove Thing” and the Grammy nominated “Reunited.”
THE THREE DEGREES
The Three Degrees, well known for their soulful voices, beautiful gowns, and fabulous stage shows are recognized around the world for songs like “When will I See You Again”, “Dirty Ol’ Man”, “Take Good Care Of Yourself”. They have been continuously touring for more than 40 years and today, the line-up consists of Valerie Holiday, Helen Scott and Freddie Pool.
