“DPAC loves to presenting classic music we all grew up on," said Bob Klaus, GM of DPAC. "The O'Jays' tunes cross every boundary, and our audience is in for a real treat. While there isn't a bad seat in the house, I expect everyone to be on their feet, singing along to their timeless hits."
"When you talk about good music, classic sounds that make you feel good....The O'Jays are that sound," says promoter Sulaiman Mausi of The DOME Group, Inc. "It's an honor to be able to bring these soul legends to the Triangle."

The O’Jays are among the pioneers of 70s Philadelphia Soul which features smooth harmonies with a dash of funk. With Eddie Levert at the helm, their successful career spans five decades; they have earned 10 gold and 9 platinum albums and spawned 24 top 10 hits with R&B classics like “Back Stabbers,” “Love Train,” “For the Love of Money,” and “Use ta Be My Girl". They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005; "Love Train" was made part of the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2006; and in 2009 the group received a BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The O’Jays are very active with various charities and have established a scholarship foundation as way to help their hometown Canton (Ohio) and Stark County residents.
