The Temptations Review, The Dramatics to bring pop history to Pala

5 October 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- In the history of pop, R&B and soul music, no singing group has played a more pivotal role than The Temptations. In a one-of-a-kind show, the Temptations Review featuring Dennis Edwards will be joined by The Dramatics featuring L.J. Reynolds at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, January 16, 2016 in the Events Center at Pala Casino Spa and Resort.

An essential component of the original Motown machine, that amazing engine created by Berry Gordy, the Temptations began their musical life in 1961 in Detroit, MI. But it wasn’t until 1964 that the Smokey Robinson written-and-produced “The Way You Do The Things You Do,” turned them into stars. An avalanche of hits followed, including “My Girl,” “Since I Lost My Baby,” “Get Ready,” “Too Proud to Beg,” “I Wish It Would Rain” and many more. Edwards replaced David Ruffin as lead singer in 1969 and two more hits, “Cloud Nine” and “Ball of Confusion (That’s What the World is Today)” quickly followed. The Temptations are now recognized as one of the most successful groups in music history.

The Dramatics, formed as a soul, R&B group in 1964 in Detroit, are best known for their 1970s hits “In the Rain” and “Watcha See is Watcha Get,” as well as their 1993 collaboration Doggy Dogg World with Snoop Dog, which became a top 20 hit on the Billboard Rhythmic top 40.
