A Special Evening with the Commodores hosted by Alliance Data benefiting LaunchAbility. For three decades, the Commodores have remained a force in the music industry. The Commodores aren't just any group. They have staying power. Just like their hit song "Brick House," the Commodores have created a foundation that just won't budge. After churning out hit after hit in the Motown days, the Commodores still hadn't achieved Grammy recognition. This wasn't to be until 1986, without Lionel Richie, when the Commodores released "Nightshift".
