The Jacksons (featuring original members Jermaine, Jackie, Tito and Marlon) will play all the bangers: Can You Feel It, Blame It on the Boogie, I’ll Be There and ABC. Kool & the Gang promises a Celebration, and a Jungle Boogie. And the Village People (led by founding member Victor Willis), Sister Sledge, the Pointer Sisters, and the Sounds of the Supremes are all on board, too. (Original Supremes member Kaaren Ragland leads the Sounds of the Supremes, who will play songs by the influential band and other Motown-era hits).
