The Temptations and the Four Tops Together at Mid-Hudson Civic Center October 14th!
Back in the day, the Temptations and the Four Tops were rivals at Motown Records, and each did their utmost to create the bigger hits and the hottest stage shows. Today, albeit with some understudies taking on various vocal assignments, the groups are still making the most of essential songs from the Baby Boom soundtrack. Make plans to see them live on stage on Saturday, October 14th at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center, located at 14 Civic Center Plaza in Poughkeepsie, 12601. The show is presented by Fox Radio Oldies 98.9/94.5 FM
As reported in the New York Times, “Some of the members’ gold-lamé jackets (are) a few sizes larger than they were decades ago, but their voices are strong and their choreography taut and precise, with bits of stage business in every song and moves that some fans first saw on black-and-white TV.” Read the rest of the NY Times feature, “The Way They Do the Things They Did, but This Time Live on Broadway.”
If you love Motown, then you don't want to miss this electrifying evening of elegant harmonies and smooth-stepping moves with two Grammy-winning legends of classic soul and R&B: The Temptations ("My Girl") and The Four Tops ("Baby, I Need Your Loving").
The combined repertoire from which these acts can choose is nothing short of astonishing. Fans of this music can expect to be treated to some of the best of Motown soul, and to be delighted by its performance. The Temptations hits include “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” “Treat Her Like a Lady,” “Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me),” “(I Know) I’m Losing You,” and “For Your Love,” among others.
The Four Tops can choose from “Walk Away Renee,” “Reach Out, I’ll Be There,” “Bernadette” “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch),” “Baby I Need Your Lovin’,” “It’s The Same Old Song,” and “Shake Me, Wake Me,” but both lists can go on and on.
Admit you could hum along to every single song on that list! Now you don’t know which one to hum first! So many ear worms, so little time...we know. Anyway, make sure to take your best gal or call up some great old friends and bring them along for the trip down memory lane. Take this chance to grab your tickets and see them now right here in Poughkeepsie. We never know what the future brings, so don’t put off until tomorrow the chance to have a fun night out and renew old friendships, as well as make some great new memories. You should go!
