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. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.

The current lineup consists of Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs, and Willie Greene Jr.

One of Motown's most consistent hitmakers, The Four Tops are among the most stable and consistent vocal groups. They helped define the Motown sound with hits like “Baby I Need Your Loving,”“ I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” “It’s The Same Old Song,” “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Standing In The Shadows Of Love,” “Bernadette,” “Walk Away Renee,” and “If I Were A Carpenter,” “Ain’t No Woman (Like The One I’ve Got),” “Are You Man Enough (from the movie Shaft In Africa),” “Sweet Understanding Love,” “One Chain Don’t Make No Prison” (later covered by Santana), “Midnight Flower” and the disco perennial “Catfish.” In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, the Four Tops were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
