A planned performance by hip-hop trio Salt-N-Pepa at the Stanislaus County Fair has been cancelled, but the Fair has added The Commodores to fill the empty slot.

Salt-N-Pepa was set to play on July 11, but had to cancel the show because of 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 well-respected artists.  They not only produced six new albums and embarked upon a world-wide tour, they also have created their own record label, Commodores Records and Entertainment.

The Stanislaus County Fair will open for a 10-day run on July 8.
