About Commodores

Celebrated as Motown legends, the Commodores stand as an iconic force in the music industry.  Their signature blend of funk, soul, country, western, and pop has produced timeless hits like “Machine Gun,” “Sail On,” “Brick House,” “Easy,” “Three Times a Lady,” and the Grammy®-winning “Night Shift” in 1986. Since their inception at Tuskeegee Institute in 1968, they’ve consistently proven their musical prowess through chart-topping successes. With a legacy spanning over 50 years, they continue to influence generations of musicians across genres with 70 million albums sold, seven #1 hits, and an iconic status in pop and Motown music.

About Pointer Sisters

The Pointer Sisters, originating from their father's church in West Oakland, California, skyrocketed to global fame as an iconic female group in pop music history. Their versatility was evident from their debut at the Troubadour club in Los Angeles, lauded by critics. Their breakout single “Yes We Can, Can” marked their entry into the Billboard charts, followed by the groundbreaking success of “Fairytale,” which earned them their first Grammy® Award.

Throughout the 70s and 80s, the sisters continued to innovate, breaking barriers as the first black female group at the Grand Ole Opry and releasing chart-topping albums such as “Energy” and “Break Out.” Hits like “Fire,” “Slow Hand,” and “I’m So Excited” solidified their status as music legends, garnering Grammy® and American Music Awards.

Their legacy extends beyond music with notable achievements like a Hollywood Walk of Fame star, induction into the Soul Train Hall of Fame, and performances at prestigious events including the Olympics closing ceremony and a special concert at the White House.

Today, Ruth, Issa, and Sadako maintain a busy touring schedule and perform the music of The Pointer Sisters all over the world.
