Get ready for a night of smooth sounds when The O'Jays bring their hit R&B music to Horseshoe Hammond.
The O’Jays formed in 1958 and made their first chart appearance in 1963 with the song “Lonely Drifter." The original lineup consisted of Eddie Levert, Walter Williams, William Powell, Bobby Massey and Bill Isles. The group became a trio when Isles and Massey departed. That trio went on to enjoy hit songs like “Back Stabbers” in 1972. They topped the charts the following year with their smash hit “Love Train.”
During the '70s, the O'Jays continued releasing hit singles, including "Put Your Hands Together" "For the Love of Money,” "Give the People What They Want," “Livin' for theWeekend and "Darlin' Darlin' Baby (Sweet Tender Love)." Original member William Powell died in 1977.
In 2004 their song "For The Love Of Money" received renewed attention when it became the theme song for "The Apprentice" TV show on NBC. The O'Jays were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005 and have also received a BET Lifetime Achievement Award.
The O'Jays will bejoined by The Dramatics. This 1960s and '70s R&B group had several Top 10 Pop and R&B hits including "In the Rain," "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get," "Hey You! Get Off My Mountain," "Me and Mrs Jones," "Be My Girl" and "Shake It Well."
Don't miss your chance to see these two legendary groups in their Horseshoe Hammond show.
