Details of Harold Melvin's Blue Notes and the Ticket Luck value
The 70s was a wonderful time for music lovers all over the world. From Memphis to the Bronx, DC to Texas and across the plains all the way to Alaska, there was a huge fan base for soul music. Making a name in those days was quite difficult. . Emerging as one of the most successful pop groups of the 70s, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes produced a variety of music ranging from soul to disco and R&B to doo-wop. The band is soon going to perform an exciting live show. You can now book your Harold Melvin's Blue Notes tickets and watch their live performance.
The group has a vibrant history and not many know that the band actually started off by the name The Charlemagnes. Harold Melvin was like a god father to his band members. Philadelphia became home to this musical sensation and a Mecca for Blue Notes followers. It was sad however that Harold Melvin passed away in 1997. It was the end of a legacy in the music world. The band discontinued all performances and soon after disbanded altogether. Their fans resonated with joy many years down the road when the Soul Tran Cruise reunited the band in early 2013.
Through most of their years as a music sensation in Philadelphia and all across the US, Teddy Pendergrass held the baton for the most influential lead singer. He gracefully took the place of his mentor Harold Melvin at the Soul Tran Cruise along with Roosevelt Brodie, Jessie Gillis Jr, Franklin Peaker and Bernard Williams.
History is full of Philly soul groups that have carved a niche like none of their predecessors but without a doubt, Harold Mervin and the Blue Notes has been the most covered band ever. Their hits were covered by numerous big names over the years. Some of these big names include, Simply Red, Jimmy Somerville, Sybil, John Legend and David Ruffin. Dance music genius DJ Danny has very openly stated that his all-time favorite and most popular mix was, "Wake Up Everybody."
Since their reunion, Harold Melvin's Blue Notes have been touring nonstop under the management of Harold's wife Ovelia. The lead singer is Big Daddy Donnell Gillespie. The music is played by Anthony Brooks, John Morris, Sharon Paige and Thorne Ronnie.
Back in the day when Neil Young was making a name for himself, he named his back-up band "This Notes for You" without the permission of Harold. Legal action ad litigations pursued Neil Young wherever he went and the backup band never saw the light of the day under the same name once Harold won. The controversy only gave Harold more star power as fans love a musician who knows how to hold his principles. The band's name was changed to Ten Men Workin.
Everything else aside, the music that is associated with this Phillies Soul singing band is by far very inspiring and enigmatic. To date, they continue to command the same respect that they did nearly 40 years ago. Harold Melvin gave the band its recognition and his wife continues to promote her late husband's legacy.
The band is scheduled to give a sterling live performance in a venue near you soon. You can now book your Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes tickets and experience an absolutely rocking music extravaganza.
