The Four Tops (originally called The Four Aims) made their first single for Chess Records in 1956 and spent seven years on the road and in nightclubs, singing pop, blues and Broadway, but mostly jazz – harmonious four-voice jazz. When Motown’s Berry Gordy Jr. found out they had made a national appearance on “The Tonight Show”, he signed them without an audition to be the lead performer on the company’s Workshop Jazz label. Their first Motown hit, “Baby, I Need Your Loving” in 1964, made them stars. “I can’t help it (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)”, a no. 1 R&B and Pop smash in 1965, is one of Motown’s longest running charts. It was quickly followed by a longtime favorite, “It’s The Same Old Song”. Their commercial heyday was highlighted by a romantic trilogy, “Reach Out I’ll Be There”, “Standing In The Shadows of Love”, and “Bernadette”. In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their name, The Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Although they no longer had any charted hits, the band continued to be a hit in concert, touring constantly. The band’s current lineup consists of Ronnie McNeir, Roquel Payton, Harold “Spike” Bonhart, and Abdul “Duke” Fakir, the band’s only surviving founding member.
