Senator Jeff Klein and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. hosted The Temptations, who performed in the borough for the first time ever night at Loreto Park. Over a thousand Bronx residents enjoyed a spectacular concert by the legendary band, who played hits such as “My Girl,” “Get Ready,” and “Can’t Get Next to You.”
“I am thrilled to have brought these musical legends to The Bronx. The Temptations amazed the crowd with a stellar performance and provided families with a truly memorable experience. Over a thousand residents gathered to enjoy this great evening, which concluded my 2016 Summertime Symphonies Series. Throughout the summer, I was able to provide my constituents with many great performances, and I am already looking forward to next year’s line-up,” said Senator Jeff Klein.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to close out the 2016 Summertime Symphonies season than with a performance from musical legends like The Temptations. I want to thank Senator Klein for making this happen. Concert series like the Summertime Symphonies continue add to the musical landscape of our borough. Music; whether it is hip-hop, salsa, or freestyle; is a huge part of The Bronx’s identity. It is great to see Motown legends like The Temptations not only perform in our borough, further adding to our musical legacy, but also appreciate our borough’s contribution to the music industry,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
“In all 56 years of The Temptations performing we’ve never performed in The Bronx. After doing so, I can say we had a wonderful time. It was an honor for us to perform for Senator Klein and the people of The Bronx. We can’t wait to do it again,” said Otis Williams, The Temptations.
This free concert concluded Senator Klein’s Summertime Symphonies series. For more information on Senator Klein’s upcoming events this fall, please call his office at (718) 822-2049.
