Temps and Tops

For more than 50 years, The Temptations have prospered, propelling popular music with a series of smash hits, and sold-out performances throughout the world. An essential component of the original Motown machine, The Temptations 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... “My Girl,” “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 classic lineup was Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams, Eddie Kendricks and David Ruffin. Beyond the fabulous singing, The Temptations became known for smooth stepping and flawless presentations. The Temptations Walk became a staple of American style. Millions of fans saw their Temptations as cultural heroes. Other stellar singers...Richard Street, Ali-Ollie Woodson, Theo Peoples...joined and adding their luster to the groups’ growing fame. The current lineup consists of Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs, and Willie Greene Jr. In 1989, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2013 received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Four Tops, originally called the Four Aims, made their first single for Chess in 1956, and spent seven years on the road and in nightclubs, singing pop, blues, Broadway, but mostly jazz—four-part harmony jazz. When Motown’s Berry Gordy Jr. found out they had hustled a national “Tonight Show” appearance, he signed them without an audition to be the marquee act for the company’s Workshop Jazz label. Their first Motown hit, “Baby I Need Your Loving” in 1964, made them stars. “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” a no. 1 R&B and Pop smash in 1965, is one of Motown’s longest-running chart toppers. It was quickly followed by a longtime favorite, “It’s The Same Old Song”. Their commercial peak was highlighted by a romantic trilogy, “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Standing In The Shadows Of Love” and “Bernadette”.

In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, the Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Though they would no longer have hits on record, the group continued to be a hit in concert, touring incessantly. The band’s current lineup is Ronnie McNeir, Roquel Payton, Harold “Spike” Bonhart and Abdul “Duke” Fakir, the only surviving founding member of the group.

Air Supply

Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock, the men of Air Supply, met in 1975 in Sydney, Australia. They became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing. The duo began playing pizza parlors, coffee bars and night clubs with just one guitar and two voices. They quickly gained a reputation for great harmonies and for original songs that Graham was constantly writing.

After their song “Lost in Love” went to No. 1 in Australia, they began to open for Rod Stewart across Australia and then throughout the U.S. and Canada. In 1980, music industry executive Clive Davis in New York signed Air Supply to Arista Records, and "Lost in Love" became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. The second single "All Out of Love," went up the charts even quicker. Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles. The albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever, and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies. "Lost in Love" was named Song of the Year in 1980, and, with the other singles, sold more than 10 million copies. Air Supply celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2015 and continue to delight audiences all over the world.

Jethro

Early in 1968, a group of British musicians joined together in Luton, a town north of London, to form Jethro Tull. They began playing in pubs and clubs throughout southern England, eventually landing a standing gig at London’s famous Marquee Club in Soho. The first album, This Was, was released in late 1968, followed by Stand Up, Benefit, Aqualung and Thick As a Brick. Various band members came and went, but the charismatic front man and composer, flutist and singer Ian Anderson, continued to lead the group through its various musical incarnations.

By the mid-70s, Jethro Tull was one of the most successful live performing acts on the world stage, rivaling Led Zeppelin, Elton John and the Rolling Stones. Today, with over 30 albums selling more than 50 million copies, Jethro Tull continues to perform over 100 concerts each year. The lineup for the 2018 tour is Ian Anderson (flute, vocals, acoustic guitar); Florian Opahle (guitarist); Scott Hammond (drummer); John O’Hara (piano, accordion, vocals); and David Goodier (bass guitar, vocals).

Johnny Mathis

The fourth of seven children, John Royce Mathis was born on September 30, 1935 in Gilmer, Texas. As a small boy he learned an appreciation of music from his father Clem who taught him his first song, “My Blue Heaven”. He sang in the church choir, school functions, community events, for visitors in their home as well as amateur shows in the San Francisco area.

In 1954, Johnny enrolled at San Francisco State College (now called San Francisco State University). While there, Johnny set a high jump record of 6’-5 1/2”. Just as when he was in high school, Johnny’s name was frequently mentioned in the sports sections of the Northern California newspapers. While there, a fellow student brought Johnny in for a Sunday afternoon jam session at a local nightclub. It was at the Black Hawk that Helen Noga, co-owner of the club, first heard him sing. She decided that she wanted to manage his career.

In early September of 1955, Johnny landed a job singing weekends at Ann Dee’s 440 Club. He continued his studies at San Francisco State and gained additional fame as a high jumper. In early 1956, Johnny was asked to attend the trials for the 1956 Olympic teams that would travel to Melbourne, Australia that summer. At the same time, Columbia Records requested that Johnny come to New York to start arrangements for his first recording session. Clem helped his son decide that his future and best interests were with the recording company. So, Johnny gave up his chance to become a member of the USA Olympic Team. He went to New York to record his first album in March of 1956.

The first album was a collection of jazz-oriented renditions of popular standards, “Johnny Mathis: A New Sound In Popular Song”. Soon, Columbia placed Johnny under the supervision of producer Mitch Miller. Mitch favored using Johnny’s voice to sing soft, romantic ballads. At his second recording session, in the fall of 1956, Johnny recorded two singles. These songs were to become among his most popular all-time greatest hits: “Wonderful, Wonderful” and “It’s Not For Me To Say.” These successes were followed by the monumental single “Chances Are” which became Johnny’s first #1 hit. In late 1959, Johnny recorded another song that became synonymous with the name of Johnny Mathis, “Misty”.

“Johnny’s Greatest Hits” went on to become one of the most popular albums of all time and spent an unprecedented 490 continuous weeks (almost 10 years) on the BILLBOARD Top Albums Chart. This record has been noted in the GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS.

Johnny has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame three times so far for "Chances Are", "Misty", and “It’s Not For Me To Say”, and in 2003 received the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Most impressive of all is at 82 years old he is still touring & recording, having recently released his newest album titled “Johnny Mathis Sings The Great New American Songbook”.
