The Temptations are the quintessential Motown vocal group. The quintet offered a rich blend of voices accompanied by stylish, coordinated dance moves. Songs like- "My Girl", "Ain’t Too Proud to Beg" and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” – gave the Temptations the title of the emperors of soul. Representing the gilded age of soul music, the Temptations reign supreme.

The Four Tops are one of soul music’s most popular and long-lived vocal groups. This quartet from Detroit perform such classics as “Baby I Need Your Loving,” “I Can’t Help Myself,” “It’s the Same Old Song,” “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Standing in the Shadows of Love” and “Bernadette.” Between 1964 and 1988, the Four Tops made Billboard’s Hot 100 chart 45 times and its R&B chart 52 times. Twenty-four of their singles made the Top 40, and seven of those entered the Top 10.

They both remain a solid draw on the touring circuit, performing 100 shows per year.
