There will be a “Brick House” at the San Mateo County fair—not one to see, but to hear.
The iconic Motown and R&B band The Commodores have been added to the San Mateo County Fair’s concert series, slated for June 14.
“The Commodores have staying power,” said Dana Stoehr, chief executive officer of the San Mateo County Event Center and Fair. “Just like their hit song “Brick House,” the Commodores have created a foundation that just won’t budge.” The band was first discovered by Berry Gordy and the Commodores went on to sell over 60 million records for Motown.
With hits like “Machine Gun” and “Sail On”, the Commodores became proven artists. Frequently referred to as “The Legends of Motown”, the Grammy award-winners have been churning out hit after hit since Motown days. In 1986, without original member Lionel Richie, the Commodores released “Night Shift” and won their first Grammy. Today the Commodores stand not only as talented and successful musicians, but as artists determined to continue their success into the future.
