An Evening Filled With Wonderful Performances Starting with The Intruders

The Intruders are the creators of such major hits as Cowboy And Girls, When We Get Married and Me Tarzan You Jane. During a previous interview with members of this extremely talented group, The Intruders expressed how they idolized such singers as "Walter and Scotty, of The Whispers; who are legendary for soulful lyrics that captivated listeners." They were also inspired by the very talented Donnie Hathaway, who encouraged them to sing and had a major influence for the evolution of the Philadelphia sound. The Intruders worked diligently with Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, as their record producers. "This group established a vocal sound that was both theirs and uniquely the Philly sound" which eventually developed into Philadelphia International. Gamble and Huff acknowledged that their work with The Intruders, was the foundation of what they called, "#The Sound of Philadelphia." It is commendable to discover what a major contribution The Intruders have been and contiue to be steadfastly a source of outstanding music that has been exemplary over the years.

Current members of The Intruders, talked about how each singer within the group can sing lead which is unique. "Usually, you find someone to sing lead and then find background members but each of us can build a harmony," stated Bobby Starr. Each group member went on to give an austere performance based on their individual talents. They belted out powerful songs such as Luther Vandross' Still In love With You, sang by the powerful voice of Curtis Warren.

With a background of performing various types of music, The New Stylistics have created unforgettable songs that continue to captivate our hearts and minds. During an interview Russell Thompkins admitted, "Betcha By Golly Wow, is my favorite song to perform. I remember this because this is the way I feel about my wife," as he lovingly acknowledged her. He then went on to offer immeasurable advice to individuals in pursuit of a musical career. Russell advised them to, "Learn their craft. It is vital to read and play music. If you are a #vocalist, I would recommend that you also become a musician." Russell, started in the music business when he was about 18 or 19 years old. "I knew it was vital that whatever type of music I performed, I had to understand the business aspects of this industry and know my craft. New artist should also learn to appreciate and respect their fans. I often thank my fans during my performance for buying our records over the years because without them we would not have been successful."

Jonathan Buckson, one of the singers of The New Stylistics discussed the precision of the group by stating excitedly, "Music keeps going. I love performing and it has nothing to do with money. I enjoy what I do and I thank God for this opportunity. It is the group's traditions for style and stage presence. You have to stay in shape, although we are 60 plus. We perform with extra energy because we do what we love and love what we are doing." It is quite obvious that The New Stylistics along with Russell Thompkins and their explosive band, truly enjoy the major hits they have shared with their audiences over the years.
