SEVENTIES soul survivors The Stylistics will hit Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre next week.

During the early ’70s, the band had 12 straight Top 10 hits, including 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.

Of all their peers, The Stylistics were one of the smoothest and sweetest soul groups of their era.

All of their hits were ballads, graced by the soaring falsetto of Russell Thompkins Jr and a lush yet graceful sound, which helped make them one of the most successful soul groups of the first half of the ’70s.

The group, from Philadelphia, struck gold when they hooked up with producer and songwriter Thom Bell, who poured his talents into the band.

Every song Bell produced was a top 10 hit R&B hit and some made into the pop charts.

Although reaching their career peak in the late seventies The Stylistics continue to tour and belt out their classic hits. The concert will take place on Wednesday, November 10, tickets are �27.50 and are available from the box office on 01438 363200.
