This weekend you can catch the ‘Kings of Motown’ and all their famous hits from “My Girl” to “Just My Imagination” for their first performance ever at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills! Listen to Gary and Lisa’s extended interview with Otis this morning and hear personal stories about The Temptations’ biggest hits!

Taking The Temptations on the road for up to 40 weeks out of the year, Otis knows the impact their music has made in history and doesn’t mind the “labor of love” of a hectic tour schedule in order to delight fans with the music of a generation.

The Temptations’ Motown hits are still so cherished by fans worldwide and still receive huge fanfare on the same caliber as music from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Beatles[/lastfm].

“The Beatles and Motown are from an era that really great songs were being written,” Otis tells Gary. “It is fifty plus years later and those songs are a true testament that great songs will to continue to go and go just like a running bunny.”

The Temptations are making their first ever appearance at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hill this Sunday, April 17th. Tickets are still available on CanyonClub.net or by calling 818-879-5016.

    Love “The Temptations” and their style of music. “My Girl” is one of my favorites of theirs.

    Do you guys love Doo Wop like I do? I don’t know if you have it in your libraries, but there’s a great collection of Doo Wop songs on VHS and I believe even on DVD now called, “Doo Wop Turns 50”. I think the show (taped in Pittsburgh back in 99 I think) was taped for PBS television. Jerry Butler hosted the evening and what a show it was. I’ve watched the show 3 times now (I think it’s two hours long), but what trip down memory lane (especially for those who remember that era). Great music from a great era!
    Check out your local library or music store for it (even though it is dated, still worth looking for and watching again).

    RainbowRay is big on promoting libraries and literacy on young children and we’ve both visited many libraries on this journey with I’m sure more to follow (love the library; it’s been kind of a second home for me as I make my way to L.A, me, Eric and RainbowRay. HA! HA!).
