Motown legends, THE CONTOURS! Over a half-century later, under the direction and leadership of Joe Billingslea this legendary group continues to shake ’em down. During their distinguished careers, THE CONTOURS have entertained tens of millions of fans and have sold millions of records along the way. They are ranked as one of the top 500 R&B artists of all time according to “Top R&B Singles 1952-1995” compiled from Billboard Magazine’s charts. In the 1960s, the group charted eight hits, including Motown’s first million-seller and its fastest-rising hit of all time, “Do You Love Me.” In 1988, after the release of the movie, “Dirty Dancing”, starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

One of Motown Records’ earliest and most exciting vocal groups, Martha and The Vandellas achieved two Top Ten hits before the ascendancy of The Supremes. Driven by Martha Reeves’ soulful, brassy lead vocals, the Vandellas became Motown’s earthier, more aggressive “girl group” alternative to the Supremes. Performing hits such as: “Heat Wave”, “Dancing in the Street”, “Nowhere to Run” and many more!!

The son of soul legend Jackie Wilson, Bobby Brooks Wilson. Bobby began as a Jackie Wilson and Stevie Wonder Impersonator.
