The Commodores Tickets
The Commodores are a highly successful funk/soul band most successful in the 1970s and 1980s. The members of the group met as freshmen at Tuskegee Institute (now Tuskegee University) in 1968, and signed with Motown having first caught the public eye opening for The Jackson 5 while on tour. The Commodoers' best known ballads are "Easy" and "Three Times a Lady", but, for the most part, the group mainly recorded funky, driven dance-floor hits which include "Brick House", "Say Yeah", "Fancy Dancer" and "Too Hot Ta Trot", among others. The band members typically alternate lead vocal duties.
The original members of The Commodores were Lionel Richie (vocals, saxophone, piano), Thomas McClary (lead guitar), Milan Williams (keyboards), William King (trumpet), Ronald La Pread (bass guitar) and Walter Orange (vocals, drums).The Commodores Tickets continued

After Richie left to pursue a solo career, former Heatwave singer J.D. Nicholas assumed co-lead vocal duties with drummer Walter Orange. However, with the exception of the Grammy-winning "Nightshift" (a tribute to Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson) the band never achieved the same level of success it had enjoyed with Richie. Ironically, "Nightshift" won The Commodores their only Grammy for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals.
The current arrangement of The Commodores consists of Walter Orange, William King and J.D. Nicholas.
