Ojai, California, 08/19/2015

The Temptations Review Featuring Dennis Edwards, former lead singer of the legendary Motown Records rhythm and blues group The Temptations, will perform at a special fundraising event at Ojai’s Libbey Bowl on Saturday, Sept. 26.

The concert begins at 7 p.m. and is being co-sponsored by the Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation and Ojai Valley Community Hospital Foundation. It promises to present a high-energy performance of classic hits, including “Ball of Confusion,” “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “I Wish It Would Rain” and “My Girl.”

Edwards was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the group in 1989, and the group was ranked at No. 68 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Artists. Edwards’ current group includes Paul Williams Jr. (son of original Temptations member Paul Williams), David Sea, Mike Patillo and Chris Arnold.

Proceeds benefit Community Memorial Health System’s construction projects: the building of a new Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura and the building of a new skilled nursing facility adjacent to the Ojai Valley Community Hospital.
