Slated for the show, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 31, at the Celebrity Theatre, are such acts as:
The Stylistics: The Philadelphia-based outfit -- once a quintet, it's now a trio, with lead vocalist Russell Tompkins Jr. -- fathered such hits as "You Make Me Feel Brand New" and "I'm Stone in Love With You."
The Dramatics: The Detroit group, perhaps best known for "Watcha See Is Watcha Get," also lent its vocals to "Doggy Dogg World" on Snoop Doggy Dogg's Doggystyle.
The Chi-Lites: As the name would suggest, this vocal group originated in Chicago. It's responsible for such crying-in-your-beer classics as "Have You Seen Her" and "Oh Girl," as well as the anthem "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People."
The Delfonics: Another Philadelphia crew, their 1970 hit was "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)?" 'Nuff said.
The Persuaders: The regrettably obscure New York group's major hit was 1971's "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate," probably more well-known for being covered by the Pretenders; similarly, the group's "Some Guys Have All the Luck" was made famous by Rod Stewart's cover.
The Intruders: The quintet is probably best known for its 1973 sentimental favorite "I'll Always Love My Mama," which recently accompanied way-too-cute footage of animal mothers caring for their babies in a Pampers TV ad in honor of Mother's Day.
