The sound of Motown has left an indelible mark on American musical culture, and the group The Temptations have been one of the most successful Motown acts during the label’s five-decade history. On Sunday, December 2, The Temptations bring their classic sounds and stage magic to the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center for a one-night-only event. With a repertoire of funk, disco, soul and doo-wop, these crooners have sold tends of millions of albums and are known as one of the most successful groups ever in music history.
With tracks like “My Girl,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” and “Just My Imagination,” The Temptations’ easy sound and deep grooves took the music world by storm during the 60s and 70s. Formed in Detroit in 160, this five-member vocal group has charted fourteen Billboard R&B #1 singles. Today the group performs with the only living original member, Otis Williams, along with four young upstarts. Expect to hear all the hits, distinct harmonies and maybe even some holiday classics. The show starts at 7PM at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center at 14 Castle Street in Great Barrington, MA; advance tickets are available online and prices range from $50-80.
