"The Lovemen Will Entertain You"

Biography

The Temprees, are an American soul vocal trio from Memphis, Tennessee, most popular during the 1970s. The band released several albums under We Produce records, an offshoot of Stax Records.

Originally formed as The Lovemen, the trio - Jasper "Jabbo" Phillips, Harold "Scotty" Scott and Deljuan "Del" Calvin - met in the mid-1960s, when they were in junior high school [1], along with Larry Dodson, future lead singer of The Bar-Kays.

First signed to Stax Records in 1970, and later to Epic Records (a subsidiary of CBS), the band released four albums, Lovemen, 1974's Love Maze, Because We Love You, and 1972's Dedicated To The One I Love. Their catalog was later re-released on CD, along with a greatest hits compilation entitled, The Best of the Temprees. The trio's last hit was 1976's "I Found Love On A Disco Floor".

In 2001, one of the most devastating events occurred when, The Temprees lost one of their own, Mr. Jasper "Jabo" Phillips, to complications of the kidneys.

Shortly after the loss of "Jabo", The Temprees added a fresh young dynamic, by the name of Jerry "JC" Calvin, Deljuan's younger brother. This was a perfect replacement because of, "JC" growing up around the group, he gained valuable experience and learned The Temprees history. "JC" performed for years in his own group, singing renditions of many Tempree love songs.
"Jerry is a powerhouse of an entertainer. He has his own style, but maintains the Temprees' sweet smooth flavor," says fellow group member Scotty.

Continuing to be one of the best loved trios in rhythm and blues, The TEMPREES travel to many cities across the country, giving audiences a visual treat with their classic trademark routines, and harmony that's unmistakable. Singing their emotionally charged love songs, fans attend the live shows in great numbers to enjoy all of their soulful hits.

With new music on the horizon coming from The TEMPREES, fans had better get their dancing shoes on, and get their minds ready for all the love they're going to feel while listening to The TEMPREES singing, Keeping you loving who you're loving.
