The old school served notice last night in Aspen. The Mighty, Mighty Temptations brought their precision dance moves, soulful harmonies and catchy lyrics to the stage at The Wheeler Opera House...where they CRUSHED.

Formed in Detroit in 1960, The Temps were a crucial part of the Motown Sound which eventually led them to their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Otis Williams, the last remaining member of the original Temptations and his new band mates delivered a show that was equal parts nostalgia, musical talent and fun. The Wheeler was rocking as the Standing Room Only crowd was dancing in the aisles to classic tunes like, My Girl, Ball of Confusion, Get Ready, Can't Get Next to You, Papa was a Rolling Stone and Just My Imagination (running away with me)and more.
The Temptations displayed their tightly choreographed and highly energized professional show to Aspen. Performed as a Las Vegas style review The Temps sang all their hits form the 60' & 70's. The Temptations rhythm section was groovin' all night and they added in a horn section comprised of local players to complete their big band sound.
The Temps showed us how its done last night in Aspen. Their show brought back memories and created new ones. These guys are professional entertainers...and the crowd loved them.
