  The Pointer Sisters - booking information

  The Pointer Sisters - booking information

June Pointer, youngest of the four Pointer Sisters who went from teenage gospel singers to the top of the pops with such hits of the 1970s and 80s as "Fire," "Slow Hand" and "I'm So Excited," died of cancer at age 52 on April 11, 2006.

The Pointer Sisters have never been easy to categorize, with roots in Country, R&B, Gospel, Jazz, Soul, and Pop. In 1995 they starred in a dazzling all new production of the multi-award winning hit Broadway musical "Ain't Misbehavin'" to critical acclaim. This was just another of the many firsts these extraordinary vocalists have experienced in their phenomenal career of more than twenty-five years.

  The Pointer Sisters - booking information  In 1994, The Pointer Sisters burned up the country charts with "Chain of Fools," their smash duet with Clint Black, which went platinum and was nominated for Best Song of The Year by the Country Music Association. In September of 1994, The Pointer Sisters received two great honors. They were awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame as a tribute to their continued success and they were invited to perform a special concert at the White House for the President and Mrs. Clinton.

  The Pointer Sisters - booking information  The Pointer Sisters had the honor of performing in the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade, which was wet but fun! In 1996 they had a ball with some of their fellow legends like Stevie Wonder, Gloria Estefan and many others performing for the closing ceremonies of the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.

They also performed in three television specials: "Up All Night" for NBC, "A Gospel Christmas with The Pointer Sisters" and the "Atlanta Symphony Orchestra" (A&E), and "Pop Goes the Fourth" with the Boston Pop's (A&E). "Pop Goes the Fourth" was nominated for a Cable ACE Award in the category of Best Performing Arts Special or Series.

Continuously in demand as international musical superstars, The Pointer Sisters headlined a hectic schedule of world wide concert dates, which took them to Germany, Austria, France, Thailand and Australia. The Pointer Sisters have also performed in concert with some of the world's most prestigious symphony orchestras including the Atlanta Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony, the Louisville Symphony, the Knoxville Symphony, and The Boston Pops which was also aired as a musical special on A&E.

One look at their Grammy Awards confirms that The Pointer Sisters have always been mavericks. Nominated ten times, they've taken home three in widely varied categories: Best Country Vocal Group (for "Fairytale"), Best Pop Performance by a Group or Duo (for "Jump") and Best Vocal Arrangement (for "Automatic").

Growing up and singing together in Oakland, California, The Pointer Sisters, Ruth, Anita, and Bonnie, honed their set-the-house-afire technique at the West Oakland Church of God, where their father was the minister. But unlike most rhythm & blues performers whose expertise is limited to gospel style testifying, The Pointer Sisters proved themselves of a wider range of musical mastery that included jazzy scat singing and country crooning.

It wasn't long before their versatility was noticed and music luminaries like Dave Mason, Elvin Bishop, Boz Scaggs and Grace Slick were soliciting their vocal services. Soon, The Pointer Sisters began making their own mark on popular music with a long string of hits starting with their funky interpretation of Allen Toussaint's "Yes We Can Can." "Fairytale," a tune penned by Anita and Bonnie, was a crossover country hit and the group became the first black female group to perform at The Grand Ole Opry.

Continuing their groundbreaking tradition, The Pointer Sisters were also one of the first black female groups to headline in Las Vegas. Their smash hit, "How Long (Betcha Got A Chick On The Side)," established The Pointer Sisters as a musical force to be reckoned with.
