The Tams to play in B'ville Thursday

The legendary R & B vocal group The Tams will perform in Bennettsville on Thursday as a part of the 2 Hours from Anywhere concert series.
The group from Atlanta are famous for their string of 1960s hits "What Kind of Fool (Do You Think I Am)", "Hey Girl Don't Bother Me", "Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy" and "I've Been Hurt".
Forming in 1960, they got their name from the tam o'shanter hats that all the members wear on stage.  They had their first success in 1964 with "What Kind of Fool (Do You Think I Am)" and continued to be regulars on the chart through the decade.
While most of the original members are now deceased, they still have a family connection to their roots.  Frontman Albert Cottle, aka "Lil' Red" is the son of member Charles Pope and the nephew of founder Joseph Pope.
Their high-energy floor show frequently includes third-generation Tams, the grandchildren of original members.
The group and their backing instrumentalists, the 14K Band, continue to be a favorite among Carolina beach music fans.
The free concert is planned for the lawn in front of the Murchison School at the corner of Fayetteville Avenue and Marlboro Street in Bennettsville.  The performance is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
If inclement weather threatens, the concert will be held at the Bennettsville Community Center on Marlboro Street.
Food vendors will be on-site.  Bring your own coolers and lawn chairs and enjoy a night with The Tams.
