SHARE Temptations bring Motown sound to Chicago

Fans of the legendary Motown sound are in for a treat Saturday when Dennis Edwards and the Temptations perform at the Country Club Hills Theater.

Edwards said he joined the group after lead singer David Ruffin was fired.

Nearly 25 years ago, Edwards said he began touring again and performing the group’s greatest hits.

One of the group’s members includes Paul Williams, Jr., the son of original Temptations’ member Paul Williams, Edwards said.

“He gives us a freshness,” Edwards said.  “He looks and sounds just like his father. I remember when Paul had to run off the stage [while performing] to go to the hospital when he was born.”

Fans can expect the group to perform all of their classic hits including, “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” and “Ain’t too Proud to Beg.”

The Temptations concert begins at 7 p.m. at the Country Clubs Hill Theater at 4116 W. 183rd St. in Country Club Hills.  Tickets range from $20-$70.

Music lovers can receive free tickets to the Rock N Blues Fest Friday at the Country Club Hills Theater.  The fest includes performances from 70s rock groups Ten Years After, Canned Heat, Egar Winter, Rick Derringer and Pat Travers.

Fans can go the box office Friday before the 7 p.m. performance to receive free tickets to the show.
