The Stylistics at The Suffolk
Creators of “You’re a Big Girl Now,” “Stop, Look, Listen to your Heart,” “You Are Everything,” “Betcha By Golly Wow,” and so many more…
In 1966, The Stylistics was formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by combining local high school rival singing groups, “The Percussions” and “The Monarchs”.
After working locally a few years in Pennsylvania’s tri-state vicinity, the group was approached by Bill Perry, a local record company executive. Bill approached the group and asked if they would be interested in making a studio recording, and with no hesitation, they jumped at his offer. Finally, the group’s ultimate dream had come true.
The group’s many honors include the Philly Walk of Fame brass plaque embedded in cement on the Avenue of The Arts street in historical downtown Philadelphia. They also appear in an exhibit at the award-winning National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC.
