Teddy Pendergrass first came to the public’s attention as frontman for Harold Melvin & the Blue notes before advancing onto his illustrious solo career. As a solo artist he created new standards for R&B artists and established himself as much more than a talented sex symbol but also an incredible song stylist and master of the genre. He set a record in R&B music by releasing five consecutive albums that went platinum, had chart topping singles, many of which were covered by other top recording stars and performed on multiple sold out tours.
In 1982 Pendergrass’ suffered a serious car accident leaving him paralyzed from the neck down. Not wanting to deny his own creativity and the signature sound so loved by his fans, he continued to release music and then in the early 2000’s he mounted a successful comeback tour before his retirement in 2006. Pendergrass passed away in 2010 leaving behind an incredible body of work and cementing his place in music history.
The Teddy Pendergrass Band 20th Anniversary Reunion Tour is keeping the the passion and legacy of Teddy’s music in it’s rightful place, on stage to be enjoyed by his legions of fans.
