Multi-Platinum recording artists and Grammy Award winners, The Pointer Sisters’ career has spanned three decades with Top Twenty Chartbuster hits like Fire, He’s So Shy, Slow Hand, Automatic, Jump (For My Love), I’m So Excited, Neutron Dance, to name a few. Their repertoire has included such diverse genres from pop and disco to R&B, dance and rock.

The Pointer Sisters have performed with some of the greatest symphony orchestras in the world, toured extensively worldwide. They proved a smash hit at the Night of the Proms, which spanned over 50 sold-out performances throughout Germany, Holland and Belgium, and has secured the group many more successful tours in Europe. In 2004, the group recorded a live CD/DVD, which captured the energetic Pointers performing their hits.

The Pointer Sisters began their formal vocal training in their father’s church. They went on to achieve worldwide fame and have secured a place in pop music history as a dynamic female group! Their first performance in Los Angeles at the Troubadour club was hailed by critics for its versatility and range and called The Pointer Sisters ‘the most exciting thing to hit show business in years’. Their 1973 debut album gave us the single, Yes We Can, Can which reached #11 on Billboard magazine’s pop singles chart. The album was certified gold and the group had become the most talked-about new act of the year.

The Pointer Sisters, best known as the Divine Divas of Pop Music, have constantly been at the top of the record charts for three decades. See the Sisters on Saturday at Twin Towns.
