The Four Tops have been marveling audiences with their infectious blend of pure vocal power and sweet harmonies since 1954.  After a brief stint with Chess Records in the late 50's and Columbia Records in the early 60's the group was introduced to Berry Gordy, who signed them to his new label, Motown Records. The rest is history. Hit after hit followed, starting in 1964 with "Baby I Need Your Loving,” and continuing with songs like, "Reach Out, I'll Be There", "Standing In The Shadows of Love,” "Bernadette,” and " I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)". During the British invasion of the U.S., the Four Tops became a sensation in England.

In 1972, after Motown moved to Los Angeles, The Four Tops signed with ABC/Dunhill Records. The group’s hits kept on with "Ain't No Woman (Like The One I Got)" and "Keeper Of The Castle" and others. As records sales starting slowing, the group returned to their strength-live performances. They play almost 200 dates a year, and started off the 90’s with an inductee to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

For more than forty years, The Temptations have prospered, propelling popular music with a series of smash hits, and sold-out performances throughout the world.  The history of The Temptations is the history of contemporary American pop. An essential component of the original Motown machine, that amazing engine invented by Berry Gory, The Temps began their musical life in Detroit in the early sixties. It wasn’t until 1964 however, that the Smokey Robinson written-and-produced “The Way You Do the things You Do” turned the guys into stars.  An avalanche of hits followed, many of which...”My Girl,” for instance...attained immortality. “It’s Growing,” “Since I Lost My Baby;,” “Get Ready,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “Beauty Is only Skin Deep,” “I Wish It Would Rain”...the hits kept coming.  When the sixties and seventies turned political, The Temps got serious. They changed their tone, dress and music. Their hits burned with intensity.  “Runaway Child” “Cloud Nine,” “I Can’t Get Next to You,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone”, and “Psychedelic Shack” still smolder.
