Nate Evans is a native of Gary, Indiana and is certainly no newcomer to the world of entertainment. Nate was a showman at the age of 14 being backed up by his own eight-piece band that was put together by his father and cousin. In the early years, Nate, The Jackson 5 and Denise Williams, who were all neighbors, were popular headliners at the Old Elks Club in their native city. With a reputation for having one of the most powerful voices in the R&B market, it was Nate who was usually called to be the opening act for such greats as Al Green, Bobby Womack, The Spinners, James Brown and the one and only, Jackie Wilson.
Jackie Wilson and Nate became good friends. In 1974, when Jackie was struck down in the prime of his life it was Nate who orchestrated the first national benefit for Jackie and his family. That same year, Nate joined the great Curtis Mayfield and Jerry Butler as the lead singer of The Impressions and toured the world.
The Impressions were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in March 1984. In July of 1986, Nate left The Impressions and joined East Records as a solo artist. When the contract expired the next year, Nate was asked by the original lead singers of The Temptations, David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, and Dennis Edwards to join them on a world tour as The Temptations Revue. After the deaths of David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks, Nate stayed with Dennis Edwards and the new members until May 2000. Today, Nate Evans is the former lead singer of two Rock & Roll Hall of Fame groups.
Evans is joined on stage by 15 year Veterans; Ritchie Stanley, Reggie Reed, Ollie Bolds, and Lawrence Jefferson backed-up by their Motown Magic Band. Together they keep the Sounds of the Temptations alive and well.
