Cache Creek welcomes R&B powerhouse the Commodores
BROOKS, Calif. – From their humble beginnings as freshmen at the Tuskegee Institute in 1968 where they met, the Commodores were known as “smart guys,” but they were funky, too – smart and funky enough to open for the Jackson 5, be discovered by famed record producer Berry Gordy, and eventually sell more than 60 million records for Motown.
As Motown’s largest selling act for the decades of the 70s and 80s, the Commodores racked up a string of hits, including “Machine Gun”, “Brick House”, “Easy”, “Three Times A Lady”, “Sail On”, “Oh No”, “Slippery When Wet”, and “Too Hot Ta Trot.” In 1986 they were recognized for their talents when they won a Grammy for their single “Night Shift.”
Audiences will have the chance to see these legends of Motown perform from their stable of highly recognizable songs when they make a stop at Cache Creek Casino Resort’s Club 88 on Saturday, August 9 at 8 p.m.
As they continue to tour, bringing the talent and experience of three decades of writing, producing, and performing hit music to a whole new generation of fans, the Commodores have definitely proven their staying power. They are themselves a “Brick House.”
