New Guild Theater Concert Series
The Guild Theater is kicking off a new concert series starting August 13th with R&B group, Troop! Troop, which stands for Total Respect for Other People, is known for a series of number-one R&B hits, including popular cover versions of the songs “All I Do Is Think of You” and “Sweet November”, originally performed by The Jackson 5 and The Deele. They also had a number-one hit with their original song “Spread My Wings”.
On September 18th, Con Funk Shun will hit the stage in Oak Park. The R&B funk band began performing in 1969 and remained popular through the 80s. They released 11 chart-topping albums and numerous hit singles, including a Billboard magazine “Number One With A Bullet” hit single on the Top R&B Singles chart.
To close out the series, we will host the one and only, John B.! Before his rise to fame, John B. used to be a songwriter and wrote songs for After 7, Toni Braxton, Michael Jackson, Color Me Badd, the Spice Girls and others. Jon B.’s popularity began in the mid-1990s when he released his debut studio album in 1995 titled Bonafide; the album spawned the popular hit and Grammy-nominated single “Someone to Love”, which featured the Grammy Award-winning artist Babyface. The album was a commercial success as it went platinum, selling over 1 million copies.
