GRAMMY AWARD winning Smokey Robinson is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, actor and former record executive director.

Robinson was the founder and front man of the Motown vocal group the Miracles, for which he was also chief songwriter and producer. He led the group from its 1955 origins as "the Five Chimes" until 1972, when he announced his retirement from the group to focus on his role as Motown's vice president. However, Robinson returned to the music industry as a solo artist the following year. After the sale of Motown Records in 1988, Robinson left the company in 1990.

Smokey Robinson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 and was awarded the 2016 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for his lifetime contributions to popular music. In 2022, he was inducted into the Black Music & Entertainment Walk of Fame.

The legendary Smokey Robinson in his right as an entertainer, songwriter and producer has written and produced (only to name a few) such hit songs as: "Just to See Her," "Tracks of My Tears," "Ooh, Baby Baby," "Tears of a Clown," "My Girl," "My Guy," "Two Lovers," "Get Ready," "Cruisin'," and the list just goes on!

His songs have placed many groups and soloists on the charts, including such artists as The Miracles, Mary Wells, Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops and The Supremes.

His songs can be heard on scores of movie and television soundtrack. They've helped define the musical profile of a great American city. They've earned virtually every award that can be bestowed upon an artist/songwriter, including a Grammy Award, a place in the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Soul Train Heritage Award and the NARAS Living Legend Award. An entire radio format, "Quiet Storm" owes its name to the title of a Smokey Robinson album.

Smokey Robinson formed the Matadors in 1954 at Northern High School with friends Warren Moore, Bobby Rodgers, Emerson Rodgers, and Ronnie White. They became established in the Detroit club scene over the next three years and changed their name to The Miracles when Emerson's sister, Claudette, replaces him in the lineup when he goes into the Army.

The Miracles first meet Berry Gordy in 1957 while auditioning for Jackie Wilson's manager. Jackie Wilson turns them down, but Berry sees potential in this group. In retrospect, this may have been the most important meeting in both men's lives. Smokey needed a mentor and an outlet for his budding talents as a singer and songwriter; the ambitious Gordy needed someone with multi-faceted musical vision. Gordy encouraged and polished Robinson's songwriting in particular in the early days, in which The Miracles were one of many acts bridging the doo wop and early soul eras.

He helped them get a recording contract with the "End" label. The Miracles debut with "Got A Job" written by Berry, Smokey, and Billy Davis in 1958. It is a hit locally, but does not gain national attention.

When Berry Gordy sets up the Motown label, The Miracles are one of the first acts he signs. Their first release on the Motown label, "Way Over There," doesn't go anywhere, but their second release "Shop Around" is a huge hit, making it to number 2 on the U.S. charts. This release not only puts The Miracles in the national spotlight, but Motown as well. This is Motown's first million dollar seller.

Over the next seven years, The Miracles experience much success. They become the first Motown act to appear on ABC-TV's American Bandstand in February 1961 and continue to top the charts with the songs "You've Really Got A Hold On Me," "Mickey's Monkey," "Going To A Go-Go" and "I Second That Emotion."

Robinson also was extremely active at Motown as a songwriter and producer for other acts. The #1 singles "My Guy" (Mary Wells) and "My Girl" (Temptations) were each Robinson songs and productions (the latter with fellow Miracle Ronnie White). Smokey also did some excellent work with The Marvelettes and Marvin Gaye.

In 1967, The Miracles became "Smokey Robinson and the Miracles," and continued topping the charts with "Baby, Baby Don't Cry" and "Tears Of A Clown."

In 1972, Smokey Robinson retired from The Miracles to spend more time with his family. Smokey names his replacement, Billy Griffin, at the Carter Barron Amphitheater in Washington, D.C. on July 12 during the group's farewell tour. Three years later, Smokey begins working on his solo career.

Without Smokey, The Miracles hit the charts two more times with "Do It Baby" hitting number 13 in 1974 and "Love Machine (Part 1)" hitting number 1 in 1976. In 1983, The Miracles are reunited with Smokey for Motown's 25th Anniversary NBC-TV Special.

Smokey's solo career is not filled with as many consistent single hits as his career with The Miracles. However, when Smokey does hit the charts he does it well. "Cruisin'" released in 1980, hits number 4, "Being With You" hits number 2 in 1982 and "Just To See Her" hits number 8 in 1987. On the other hand, his thematic albums are very successful and always do well on the charts.

Beginning in 1981, Smokey receives the long-term recognition he deserves. ABC's American Bandstand airs the Smokey Robinson 25th Anniversary Special on December 12. He is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on January 21, 1987. In December of the following year, he is named a Grammy Living Legend as well as being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame by Whitney Houston on May 30, 1990.

In 1991, after thirty years with Motown, Smokey Robinson leaves Motown to sign with SBK Records. He continues to appear at industry gatherings and events.

He is not only a great songwriter but an extraordinary entertainer. His show, still constantly touring the nation to sold out crowds, has brought joy to his listeners. His songs of the past allow many to remember the times gone by – the good and the bad. He doesn't just give you a selection of hits, but his entire show is a production itself – with lights, effects, script and music.

  • Baby That's Backatcha
  • Being With You
  • Just To See Her
  • Everything You Touch
  • One Heartbeat

(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire SMOKEY ROBINSON for an event?)
(i.e., what is SMOKEY ROBINSON booking fee to perform at an event?)

Official booking fees for SMOKEY ROBINSON, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.

Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist's calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist's concerts, the current demand for the artist's music, market activity, etc.

As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist's price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.

Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
