The Jacksons

The Jackson 5 become a worldwide sensation in 1969 with the release of their first Motown album, 'Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5. 'Singles' I Want You Back' and 'Who's Loving You' go on to sell 2 million copies in 6 weeks. History is forever changed when the hit single 'I Want You Back' rises to #1 on the pop charts - the Jackson 5 franchise is born.

1960 Father Joe begins coaching Jermaine, Tito and Jackie in his spare time and they are soon joined by Marlon and Michal. Joe later recruits drummer Johnny Jackson. 1963 Michael takes over from Jermaine as lead vocalist for the group. 1965 The brother's first invitation to perform comes courtesy of a children's fashion show in Glen Park. Having until then performed as the Jackson Family and The Jackson Brothers, it is here that the name The Jackson 5 is born, in preference to the Jackson Brothers Five suggested by show organizer Evelyn Leahy. They perform three numbers, one being a current hit by The Larks, 'Doin' The Jerk.'
After a suggestion from Joe's sister-in-law, Bobbie Rose Jackson, The Jackson 5, comprising Michael, Marlon, Jermaine, Jackie and Tito, enter and win the Rossevelt High School talent show. Two months later, The Jackson 5 win the Annual talent Search at Gilroy Stadium. The Jackson 5 also receive their first ever press in the Gary Post Tribune. Joseph Jackson books The Jackson 5 into Mr. Lucky's, a nightclub in Gary. They earn $8 a night for five sets, six or sometimes even seven days a week. They prove popular with the customers who show appreciation by throwing money onto the stage, amounting to well above their nightly fee.
Joseph Jackson sends Motown founder, Berry Gordy, a tape of The Jackson 5. Three months later, it is returned with no offer. 1967 The Jackson 5 win first prize in an amateur talent show at Gary's Memorial Auditorium. Joseph Jackson enters The Jackson 5 in the Sunday Night Amateur Talent show at the Regal Theater, Chicago where they become three-time winners. Their victory not only earns them the right to appear with other multiple show winners, but also the chance to share the bill with a top established star or act. The Jackson 5 win the Regal Theater's Multiple Winners Super Talent night and are placed on the same bill as top R&B act of 1967, Gladys Knight & The Pips.

The Jackson 5's professional career is launched after they play at the Apollo Theatre, in Harlem in the 'Super Dogs' final. They go on to win the competition and are invited back as paid performers.
January 1968
The Jackson 5 release the single 'Big Boy' on Steeltown Records.
April 1968
The Jackson 5 perform at a campaign rally for Richard Harcher in Gary. Bobby Taylor and Diana Ross & The Supremes also perform.
August 1968
The Jackson 5 are invited to appear on the David Frost Show in New York.

Winter 1968 The Jackson 5's TV debut is shelved as they get their biggest break to date when they are asked to audition for Berry Gordy, founder and President of Motown Records in Detroit. The audition is eventually video-taped for Berry Gordy as he was unable to attend in person. The Jackson 5 are subsequently signed to Motown Records. The Jackson 5 move to Los Angels and live temporarily in the Hollywood Hills in the homes of Berry Gordy and Diana Ross. The Jackson 5 are officially welcomed to Motown Records when Berry Gordy throws a party at his home with many of Motown’s established artists: The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Diana Ross and Smokey Robinson.

Quite possibly the most recognizable family in music history, The Jacksons celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Jackson 5 by heading out for a 2015 tour and stepping on stage at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, February 28th. This special performance features video footage that chronicles the evolution of The Jacksons! Consisting of original members Jermaine Jackson, Tito Jackson, Jackie Jackson and Marlon Jackson, The Jacksons put on an amazing show that includes all of their mega-hits made famous with their brother, Michael Jackson.

This energetic show consists of all the famous dance moves and costumes. Seeing The Jacksons is an opportunity to witness live the re-formation of one of the greatest pop and Motown super groups in the history of music. The Jacksons are inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, have five #1 albums, 18 #1 hits, 17 top 10 albums, 17 top 40 singles which include their most notable songs such as "ABC", "I Want You Back", "I'll Be There", "Rockin' Robin", and so many more!
