COCONUT CREEK, Fla. – Grammy Award winners The Commodores, will perform in The Pavilion on Saturday, Nov. 9, 8 p.m. at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, 5550 NW 40th St., Coconut Creek.
One of the greatest Motown and R&B and funk groups of all time, The Commodores (Walter “Clyde” Orange, James Dean “JD” Nicholas and William “WAK” King) have influenced artists young and old and in all genres with their classic songs.
The Commodores’ stellar history includes 75 million albums sold worldwide, seven #1 singles, five #1 albums, 20 top 10 singles and 15 top 10 albums.

The Commodores formed after meeting as freshmen at Tuskegee University in 1968. They signed with Motown four years later after drawing attention as the opening act for the Jackson 5. In 1986, they won their first Grammy for the song “Nightshift.”
King is one of the original members, while Orange joined in 1972, followed by Nicholas in 1984. They tour with their five-piece band known as the “Mean Machine.”
