of the performing groups, The Manhattans took their name, not from the New York borough, but from a popular brand of whiskey
in the early 1960s. When the band members asked singing sensation Gerald Alston to join the group in 1970, he turned them
down flat. Six months later, when original lead vocalist George Smith died, Alston reconsidered and became the new lead vocalist.
The 2014 show promises to be the best concert yet, with an amazing lineup of superstars. Kicking off
the show will be R&B legends The Manhattans, who spent four decades serenading us with such hits as "Kiss And Say Goodbye"
and "Shining Star." Pioneering soul band of the '60's and '70's, The Delfonics, will entertain with such hits as "Didn't I
(Blow Your Mind This Time)" and "Ready or Not Here I Come." The full lineup will include Bloodstone, Evelyn King, The Originals,
Billy Paul, The Floaters, Dorothy Moore, The Notations and The Impressions. With all of this talent together on one stage,
it's no surprise that Hot 92 Love Affair tickets are rapidly selling.
The Hot 92 Love Affair
Valentine's Day concert features a stellar lineup of ten acts, making it the most talent-packed show of the year. The Manhattans
have released 26 albums during their 40-year career and have produced some of the best R&B hits in music history. The
Delfonics pioneered the Philadelphia soul sound in the late '60s and early '70s, with their 1970 hit "Didn't I (Blow Your
Mind This Time)", selling over one million copies. Bloodstone's mix of R&B, funk and soul is guaranteed to transport concertgoers
back to the heyday of the early '70s. The full, smooth voice of Evelyn 'Champagne' King will delight with its rich textures
and haunting melodies. Adding to the mixing bag of talent, The Originals were a Motown hit machine of the late '60s and early
'70s, churning out such classics as "Baby I'm For Real" and "Down to Love Town." Billy Paul's most famous hit was "Me and
Mrs. Jones," but the Grammy-winning soul legend has many more offerings than that. The Floaters will serenade the crowd with
their unique R&B sound, as epitomized by their hit "Float On." Famous for her 1976 hit "Misty Blue," Dorothy Moore will
bring her entrancing blend of soul, R&B and disco to the stage, while The Notations and The Impressions will add a touch
of funk, doo-wop and gospel.
