For more than fifty years, The Temptations have prospered, propelling popular music with a series of smash hits, and sold-out performances throughout the world.
“The crowds are bigger, the sales are sizzling,” says one industry report. “The outpouring of affection for this super-group has never been greater”.
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 Gordy, 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.
The classic lineup was Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams, Eddie Kendricks and David Ruffin. Beyond the fabulous singing, The temps became known for smooth stepping and flawless presentations. The Temptations Walk became a staple of American style. Flair, flash and class. Millions of fans saw their Temptations as cultural heroes.
When the sixties and seventies turned political, The Temps got serious. They changed their tone, dress and music. Producer Norman Whitfield led the way. His Temptations hits, many featuring Dennis Edwards who had replaced David Ruffin, burned with intensity. “Runaway Child” “Cloud Nine,” “I Can’t Get Next to You,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone”, and “Psychedelic Shack” still smolder.
Other stellar singers…Richard Street, Ali-Ollie Woodson…joined, adding their luster to the groups’ growing fame. No matter the change in personnel, The Temptations remained true to The Temptations tradition. They survived the whims of fashion, whether disco or techno, and stuck to their guns. “Great singing,” says Otis, “will always prevail.” In the eighties, The Temps prevailed with smashes like the Otis Williams’ penned “Treat Her Like A Lady.” Then in the nineties, another Temptation explosion:
The Soul Experience
“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” – Billy Joel
From Kalamazoo to the world…Spread the word – The Soul Experience is here to restore your faith in humanity through an extraordinary experience with music. This full funky ensemble merges smooth grooves and silky vocals that are sure to elevate your soul. Since they can remember, lead singers, Tim Terrentine and Denise Willhite have been sanging! Yes, sanging, not singing. These two soul singers make you lay your troubles down with their special blend of funk-meets-gospel harmonies while the band demands that your body join the groove while they deliver infectious grooves for your inner-dancer.
Because music is the only form of time travel, The Soul Experience takes audiences on a funky ride through the great jams of the 70’s and 80’s through today. On any given night you will hear covers from B.B. King to Bruno Mars; Aretha Franklin to Jennifer Hudson. Blues, Jazz Funk, Motown, Soul and even some Country Rock are what you can expect to hear from the stage. Love, joy and good times are what you’ll feel in your soul. You do not want to miss the opportunity to have a “Soul Experience.”
