The Motown greats have been going strong since the early 1960s with hit songs including “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” “My Girl,” “Since I Lost My Baby” and “I Wish It Would Rain.” In 2005, the band earned a Grammy nomination for the album "Reflections," and their 2006 live DVD "Get Ready" was one of the biggest selling music DVDs of all time. The current lineup includes founding member Otis Williams with Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs and Willie Greene Jr.
