Big Concerts has confirmed a second tour under the brand new series The Legends of R&B coming to Johannesburg in September and October 2016 featuring The Stylistics with special guest Lenny Williams. Johannesburg: 30th September 2016 and 1st October 2016 at Teatro Montecasino
The Stylistics were formed in Philadelphia, PA in 1966 from two groups, “The Percussions” and “The Monarchs.” When members from each group were drafted or went on to further their education, the remaining members under the guidance of their English teacher, Beverly Hamilton, joined forces and changed their name to “The Stylistics.”
Their first song, “You’re a Big Girl Now,” became a number one hit in Philadelphia and a few other cities. After the success of, “You’re a Big Girl Now,” the band wanted to follow up with an album release. Veteran hit producer, Tom Bell, was contracted and was hired to produce the group’s first album. The album was titled, “The Stylistics,” and from that album came the hits, “Stop, Look, Listen to your Heart,” “You are Everything” and “Betcha By Golly Wow.” The hits continued with the release of their second album, “Round Two” and the Stylistics forever became known as the Philly group with the sweet love songs.
The ultimate soul crooner, Lenny Williams possesses one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary music. With his rich, passionate vocal style, he is rightfully regarded as one of R&B’s most influential soul men. Williams began his musical career making records that have subsequently become pop and R&B classics. Tunes like the mega-hit, “Cause I Love You” and “So Very Hard To Go,” have transcended into the new millennium, influencing many of today’s newest Pop and R&B vocalists. Lenny has continued his solo career touring the US, Europe and now South Africa. He has recently shared stages with Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys, K-Jon, Anthony Hamilton, The Whispers, Rick James, Boney James, Bobby Womack, The Ohio Players, Al Green, Usher and Frankie Beverley and Maze.
