Fair officials have been notified that Salt-N-Pepa has cancelled their show at the Stanislaus County Fair which was set for Monday, July 11. It was announced on Feb. 11 that the girl group was to perform. The cancelation is due to medical reasons in regards to one of the band mates.

“We are very disappointed Salt-N-Pepa cancelled, especially because the community was extremely excited for the show. We know this is always a possibility in our line of business,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “We are still very excited to have the Commodores replacing them. They are a great band, whose music still lives on.”

For three decades, the Commodores have remained a force in the music industry. Just like their hit song “Brick House,” the Commodores have created a foundation that just won’t budge. The Commodores went on to sell over 60 million records for Motown. With hits like “Machine Gun” and “Sail On,” the Commodores became iconic artists. They not only produced six new albums, embarked upon a world-wide tour, but also have created their own record label, Commodores Records and Entertainment. Today the Commodores are not only recognized as talented and successful musicians, but as artists determined to continue their success into the future.
