Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famers The O’Jays are best known for bringing their unique style of Philly Soul to the pop charts, with hits like “Backstabbers” and “Love Train”. The O’Jays will perform at DPAC on Saturday, November 18, 2017. Joining them will be smooth R&B vocal group The Dramatics.
The O’Jays are touring history, a connection to an era and a sound that formed the soundtrack for the lives of several generations. The O’Jays are still hitting the road with the same electrifying energy they’ve had for over 50 years.
The O'Jays helped form the soundtrack for the lives of several generations. Few bands are as celebrated with inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall of Fame and the Official R&B Music Hall of Fame, plus a BET Lifetime Achievement Award. The O’Jays were at the forefront of seventies soul music. Racking up a lengthy string of modern R&B classics, including “Back Stabbers,” “Love Train,” “For the Love of Money,” “I Love Music”, “Darlin’ Darlin’ Baby” and “Use Ta Be My Girl,” they helped put “Philly Soul” on the map.
The Dramatics are best known for their hits “In The Rain” and “Whatcha See is Whatcha Get”, both of which were Top Ten hits on the pop charts. Formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1964, the group has been entertaining audiences for over five decades.

For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.
All performances scheduled at DPAC normally take place as planned. For more information on our inclement weather policy, please visit INCLEMENT WEATHER FAQ.
