New York, NY (PRWE January 12, 2011

This Valentine’s weekend Marquee Concerts, the nation’s leading
promoter of jazz, soul, and R&B musicians, reunites some of the
hottest super-groups for its “70’s Soul Jam Valentine’s Concert”
on February 12, 2011 at the Beacon Theatre. Fans of “Soul Train” and
the sensational sounds of the ’70s won’t want to miss this one-time
event featuring two shows at 3pm and 8pm.

The LA Music Examiner described the re-emergence of Soul/R&B
groups as “evenings packed with much-loved hits that get the crowd
moving” and the audience “singing along to every word.” “The “70’s Soul
Jam Valentine’s Concert” brings together some of the greatest musicians
of the period,” notes Sam Kimball, co-founder of Marquee Concerts.
“For fans who first fell in love listening to these Soul hits, this will
be an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime show.”

The concert will kick off with Philly soul group THE STYLISTICS, who
spun out 12 straight Top Ten hits that included “You Are Everything,”
“Betcha by Golly, Wow,” “I’m Stone in Love With You,” “Break Up to Make
Up” and “You Make Me Feel Brand New.” These crowd-pleasing ballads
feature the extraordinary falsetto of Russell Thompkins, Jr.

Detroit-based THE DRAMATICS are best known for their R&B hit
“Watcha See Is Watcha Get.” The single was the Dramatics’ first major
national hit, peaking at number three on the R&B charts. The
following year their single “In the Rain” shot to the number one spot on
the R&B charts.

Jersey City standouts, THE MANHATTANS, sold millions of records over
four decades. They won NAFTA’s “Most Promising Group” in 1969, and in
the late 1970’s recorded and released the songs they are best known for,
“Kiss and Say Goodbye” and “Shining Star.”

“The Manhattans were one of those classic R&B vocal groups who
managed to achieve incredible career longevity by adapting their style
to fit changing times,” writes Steve Huey, Rovi. “Formed in the ’60s as a
doo wop-influenced R&B quintet, the Manhattans reinvented
themselves as sweet, smooth soul balladeers during the ’70s.”

The “70’s Soul Jam Valentine’s Concert” also features Philly R&B
quintet BLUE MAGIC, who hit the Top 40 of the R&B singles chart with
their first three 45s before crossing over with “Sideshow,” which went
gold, topped the R&B charts, and became a Top Ten pop hit. Their
next single, “Three Ring Circus” made the R&B Top Ten and the pop
Top 40. Known for their smooth ballads, the group stayed high on the
Soul charts with “Stop to Start” and “Chasing Rainbows” before landing a
big hit with the dance tune “Magic of the Blue.”

Rounding out this impressive bill of artists, Motown favorite NEW
BIRTH has its roots in the music of gospel singers Leslie and Melvin
Wilson. Their hits include the R&B Top Ten single “I Can Understand
It,” “It’s Been a Long Time,” “Wildflower,” and R&B hit, “Dream
Merchant.” New Birth was originally named the NITE-LITERS and had chart
action with R&B hits: “K-Jee,” “Afro-Strut,” and “Pull Together.”

Tickets for the Saturday, February 12, 2011 shows at 3pm and 8pm are $45.50, $65.50, and $79.50. The Beacon Theatre is located at 2124 Broadway, New York, NY.
