Masters of Motown to deliver high-energy show locally
Posted: Thursday, November 8, 2012 9:52 pm
The 7:30 p.m. performance will feature many of the greatest hits from the legendary Motown era.
In the early ’60s, some of the most iconic names in the history of popular music were discovered in the Motor City, better know simply as Motown. Masters of Motown is a celebration of these artists, their music and their style. The show features stylishly costumed, fully choreographed tributes to both male and female groups of the era. Masters of Motown’s dynamic vocalists are backed by a band of seasoned musicians who have been performing together for decades.
The audience will take the ultimate stroll down memory lane as they relive, or discover for the first time, the incredible harmonies and smooth moves made famous by many of the greatest recording acts of all-time, including The Temptations, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Four Tops, Diana Ross & The Supremes, The Jackson Five, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, The Commodores and many more. This high-energy show is perfect for audiences of all ages.
