The Prolifics

The Prolifics began as five teens singing a cappella on the street corners of Detroit. For the past decade, they’ve performed 130 days a year as the house band on the Detroit Princess, a reconditioned riverboat that was once a gambling venue on the Mississippi River.

Taking turns as lead, the group includes Gary Guinn, first tenor; Ed Brown, bass; Thomas Walker, high baritone; Stanley Greer, low baritone; and Rick Littleton, second tenor. The Prolifics will perform music from The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Jackson Five, Stevie Wonder, and Marvin Gaye.

Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, the exclusive sponsor of the summer concerts, will offer a second random raffle drawing of the season for concert goers to win a Mercedes-Benz driving experience. Attendees (21 years or older with a valid U.S. driver’s license) may enter by visiting the Mercedes-Benz Financial Services vehicle display during this final concert on August 16.
