The Tempters are a unique group getting their start by chance. They started out as an act in an original musical called “Struttin’ Uptown”, in 1996. The guys paid a Tribute to one of the best Male groups of our time, “The Temptations”. In 1997 under the direction and encouragement of Beverly Williamson, the group stayed together and developed into a top notch tribute Band. They now perform regularly all over the Tri-State area.
They have been successful in bringing the Motown Era style of entertainment back to life, with their powerful soloist and heartfelt harmonies. They have developed a smooth choreography that wows the audience as they float across the stage dressed in their stylish, bright colored suits. They are a class act that should not be missed.
The Tempters bring a breath of fresh air to the memory of The Temptations and other “Old School Artist” whose work they perform to perfection including the O’jays and The Stylistics. The Tempters performances are done with such professionalism and style that even the most discerning music lover will stand up and take notice.
Their shows will take you down memory lane, reminding you of that first love, high school sweetheart, first dance and the list goes on… while making it real hard for the audience to remain in their seats during a performance.
To their credit The Tempters have been nominated several times and in 2005 and 2007 they won the coveted WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) Award for Best Specialty/Nostalgia group of the year.
Now under the management team of “Double B Entertainment LLC”, which includes, Beverly Williamson-Dedmon and husband Byron Dedmon. The group is flourishing, backed up by some of the best musicians in the city, The “Midwest Funk” band (many of whom have been playing for the group throughout their short but illustrious career)…they are truly a rare treat.
They have performed regularly for venue’s such as Potawatomi Bingo Casino- Milwaukee, WI., LCO Casino – Hayward WI, Horseshoe Casino – Hammond IN, Fox Hills Resort, Astor Hotel, ARJ’s, Questions and Waukesha Civic Center, …They are returning favorites at Glendale Days Fourth of July celebrations, Whitefish Bay sounds of Summer, Bay Shore Town Center, Watertown Riverfest, Beloit River festival, Summerfest, Rainbow Summer, The Wisconsin State Fair, African World Festival Milwaukee and most recently Jazz in the Park.
They recently sold over 90% of the seats at the beautiful Northern Lights Theater at Potawatomi Bingo Casino for their Christmas Show., where they were the solo act. The Management at Potawatomi stated that this was highly unusual for what is considered “Local Talent.” The audience had a great experience and danced in and out of their seats on both levels all night.
This group attracts a following that crosses all ethnic, gender and age groups….you’ll be blown away at seeing even small children on their feet imitating the groups singing and dancing.
