Feed The Body, Feed The Soul: The Temptations
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 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.
Having sold tens of millions of albums, the Temptations – recipients of 7 GRAMMY Awards and a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award - are one of the most successful groups in music history.
All proceeds will benefit the Refuge Foundation for the Arts, Inc., supporting assistance with basic needs and access to the arts in Northeast Wisconsin.
The event will be opened by the following performers: Welles, Daniel Watts & Amy Ryerson (Broadway performers), Traveller and J-Council.
