Step back in time and enjoy classic soul of the 1960s and 1970s as The Fellas take the stage with class and style at the Lobby at the Ritz on Saturday, April 12.

Formed in 1991, The Fellas perform Classic Soul inspired by such acts as The Temptations, The O’Jays, The Manhattans, The Spinners, Rachelle Farrell, Marvin Gaye, Will Downing and Phil Perry, to name a few. But more than an “oldies” group. Members include founders Ricardo Wright and Joe Rivera III along with JoQuae DeVonish and newest member Roman Barksdale.
