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.
