SF CABARET: THE STYLISTICS AT YOSHI'S - LAST SHOWS TONIGHT
The Stylistics, featuring original members Airrion Love and Herbert Murrell, plus Harold Brown, and Jason Sharp, perform at YOSHI'S(1330 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA - 415-655-5600) on Friday & Saturday, July 19th & 20th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Following the success of The O'Jays, The Spinners and The Delfonics, the City of Brotherly Love has just enough room for another highly successful soul group. That group came in the form of The Stylistics. The Stylistics, with their charisma, style and harmony, evolved into one of the best-selling soul groups ever, as the Philadelphia-based quartet recorded a remarkable 10 straight-top ten hits during the early 1970's. The story of The Stylistics is not only of success, it is one of early disappointment that eventually led to their meteoric rise. When The Monarchs and The Percussions, two moderately successful Philadelphia high school bands dissolved in the late 1960's, it set the state for a merger that would impact soul music for years. In 1968, under the suggestion of a teacher, the two disbanded high school groups decided to join forces. Russell Thompkins, Jr., Airrion Love and James Smith of The Monarchs, joined forces with James Dunn and Herbert Murrell of The Percussions, it was then that The Stylistics were born. What started as the innocent union of two ex-high school bands, developed into one of the longest standing, most accomplished soul bands to grace the R&B scene. They continue to perform as only they can, bringing with them the sweet, soulful memories of year's past. There is a $42 (8:00 pm) $35 (10:00 pm) cover.
