"Steppin' With Style, the 'I'm Gonna Win' Tour" is an elegant evening of Dancing, Dining and Music, featuring THE voice of the '70's Grammy Nominated Internationally known R&B singing group, THE STYLISTICS. Russell Thompkins, Jr. was the original lead vocal of the group for over 30 years, as they enjoyed enormous popularity worldwide with hits such as, "Stone In Love with You", "Peek-A-Boo", "People Make the World Go 'Round", "Right as Rain", "Payback is a Dog", "Hurry Up This Way Again", "Children of the Night", "Betcha By Golly, Wow" and so many more. Their greatest success came with the song titled "You Make Me Feel Brand New" which brought the group a Grammy Nomination in 1974. Today, Russell and his new Stylistics Raymond Johnson (returning from the early days) and Johnathan Buxton ("Falcon"), still continues to bring the sounds of the original records to many cheering, sell-out groups nationally and abroad.
"I'm Gonna Win" is a song recorded with Russell singing solo on their "Thank You, Baby" album. Along with their show of hits, attendees will hear Russell perform it live at this event! It is very inspirational, letting us know that it is where we are going that matters, and not where we've been ---- If we have something to lose, we're gonna WIN! With an inspiring message to be delivered during the dinner program (included with VIP, optional otherwise), and the great dance beats of the DJ after the live show and more to enjoy, it is an event that promises to offer much to those who attend. General admission starts at $65; VIP packages are $95 and include a hot served dinner, priority seating, T-Shirt, Keepsake Booklet, Portrait of the group (which they will autograph for you after the show), Pen, and more, conveniently placed inside a personalized gift bag just for you! Other things may be added, so keep watching the site! There will be several great raffles during the evening, and tickets may be purchased when you arrive.
