You know it’s Motown when you hear it!
Defined as soul music, Classic Motown (Motown Records) was a driving force behind some of the biggest names in music. Individual artists and groups like: Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, and The Jackson 5, among many others, would come to be known as the Motown Sound in the sixties and seventies.For the first time ever, Motown Soul brings you the exquisite vocal harmonies of Cathy Borges, Marlene O’Neill, and Amoy Levy, known as The Tonettes, performing alongside special guest performer from Las Vegas, Nevada, the man with all of the moves Grady Harrell. Together, the Tonettes and Grady will deliver a powerful and soulful performance as you have never heard or seen before, bringing you back in time to that special era when music and soul came together.
With songs like: “Ooh Baby Baby” (Smokey Robinson), “Lonely Teardrops” (Jackie Wilson), “I’ll Be There” (Jackson 5), “My Girl” (The Temptations), “Heatwave” (Martha and the Vandellas), “Be My Baby” (Ronettes), “Natural Woman” (Aretha Franklin) and “You Can’t Hurry Love” (Supremes), you’ll be singing and dancing all night long to this timeless music.
Motown Soul will be accompanied by our very own The Rockin’ Royals Showband.
