Event Details






In 1967 Enchantment was formed at Pershing High School in the city known as Motown. The multi-talented original lineup consisted of Joe (Jobie) Thomas, Emanuel (E.J.) Johnson, Dave Banks Jr., Edgar “Mickey” Clanton and Bobby Green. The group obtained their first recording contract in 1969, and began performing various engagements around the Detroit area.

In 1976 Enchantment signed with Roadshow Records, distributed by United Artist, and recorded their self-entitled debut album. The first single to ride the charts for the locally popular group was “Come On and Ride.” Later that year the charismatic showmen received national acclaim with the release of their second single “Gloria”, which catapulted the group into stardom. The smash hit was deemed as one of the most popular songs of 1976 and ’77. Enchantment did not stop there. The group followed up with hits like “Sunshine”, “Where Do We Go From Here”, “Forever More”, “Silly Love Song”, and the number “1” record “It’s You That I Need” featuring Jobie Thomas on lead vocals. ”

Today JOBIE THOMAS' Enchantment is thrilling crowds around the world with a dynamic “live” show second to none! So when you hear the names Anthony Thomas, Ollie Bolds, Al Burrus, Warren “Julian” and of course Joe “Jobie” Thomas sit back, relax, and close your eyes to prepare for a great musical experience. The story continues…Prepare to return to the land of Enchantment!
