“The Commodores are going to put on a great show to start our week of world-class fun,” said BB&T Atlanta Open Tournament Director & Chief Development Officer Eddie Gonzalez. “We want to engage our fans for a great experience and ensure our 2015 event is the hottest ticket in the city in July.”

The Commodores began performing in 1968, as a group of college students at Tuskeegee. They were discovered by famed producer Berry Gordy in 1974 and, under his direction, sold over 60 million records for Motown Records. For four decades, the Commodores have continued to produce catchy, funky music. They have proven successful with producing six albums and going on a worldwide tour. The Commodores also decided to expand their artistic horizons and create their own record label: Commodores Records and Entertainment. 

These superstars have been successful from their inception. Not only did they open for the Jackson 5, but they were also Motown’s largest-selling act in both the ’70s and the ’80s. Most recently, the Commodores have been creating new digital recordings of their classic hits. The band released four new albums in 1992, including a Christmas album with a mix of covers of traditional songs and originals. The Commodores are currently working on new material for their next studio CD, maintaining their presence in the music industry.
