The group's repertoire has included soul music, R&B, disco, adult contemporary, doo-wop, jazz, and show tunes.

The Four Tops were one of soul music’s most popular and long-lived vocal groups. This quartet from Detroit endured for more than 40 years without a single change in personnel.

Ever since the mid-60's The Four Tops have been winning audiences with their energising vocal powers and melodic harmonies.

Their first hit Baby I Need Your Loving lead on to many more, including Reach Out I'll Be There and Bernadette.

The Four Tops have a vast catalogue of hits, with 27 UK top 40 singles, which include ‘I Can’t Help Myself’ and the 1966 number one ‘Reach Out (I’ll Be There).’ The 2020 line-up includes original member Duke Fakir plus Ronnie McNeir and Lawrence Payton 

Four Tops have had a stable line-up. Indeed, part of the charm of the group is that the original members performed together for over 40 years, only finally separated by illness and death. Duke Fakir, at 83, is the only original member still alive.

That said, it’s perhaps unreasonable to expect a group performing for 65 years to have a stable line-up. We still have Duke with us, and although he’s been performing from a stool this year while recovering from a hip operation, he’s still keeping the group going.
