The O'Jays to perform at Pala Casino

5 June 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Pop and R&B legends The O'Jays with special guest The Whispers will perform in concert at 8 p.m., Friday, 4 August at Pala Casino Spa and Resort's Starlight Theater.

The O'Jays are touring history and a connection to an era and sound that formed the soundtrack for several generations. Original members Walter Williams, Sr. and Eddie Levert have been friends since their childhood in Canton, Ohio. In 1972, Gamble & Huff, a songwriting production team, signed The O'Jays to their Philadelphia International label. With The Sound of Philadelphia, The O'Jays scored their first number one, million seller, "Backstabbers." Subsequently, they had a number of chart-topping pop and R&B singles, including "Love Train," "Put Your Hands Together," "For The Love Of Money," "I Love Music," "Darlin' Darlin' Baby (Sweet Tender Love)," "Live For The Weekend" and "Use Ta Be My Girl." They were off and running.

The Whispers originated in Los Angeles, California, and have scored pop and R&B hits since the '70s. They had a number of hits on the R&B and Billboard Hot 100 charts and hit #1 on the Hot Dance Club play chart with "And The Beat Goes On," "Can You Do The Boogie" and "Out The Box." In '87, they hit the Top 10 when "Rock Steady" became their first Top 10 success on the Hot 100 reaching #7, while also capturing the #1 spot on the R&B charts.
