Maurice Jackson's Independents
The O'Jays

Headlining Performers

With chart topping hits including "Love Train," "Used To Be My Girl," "Brandy" and "For The Love of Money," The O'Jays connect with an era and a sound that provided the soundtrack for generations of R&B and soul fans. Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, The O'Jays are still hitting the road with the same electrifying energy they've had for more than 50 years.

Maurice Jackson's Independents will tap into the singer-songwriter's career of recorded music as both a solo artist and as a member of the groups The Independents and Silk during the 70s and early 80s. The Independents, formed in the early 70s, released 8 singles, each of which rose on the billboard R&B charts. Their record "Leaving me" was a number one R&B hit.
