THE MOTOWN SHOW was created with the idea of bringing new life to the magical sound of the era-defining music that came out of Detriot. This Motown sound dominated the airwaves from the late fifties to early sixties. Motown was more than just the obvious songs heard at every Motown tribute show. If you've lived it and came of age dancing to it, you will of course recognize the hits "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", "I Heard it Through the Grapevine", "Bernadette", "Can I Get a Witness", "Dancing in the Street", "Jimi Mack" and "My Girl", among others, as well as the hidden gems. THE MOTOWN SHOW covers it all and will have you on your feet reminiscing about a more innocent time of music. We all love Motown as it never seems to lose its appeal to middle, older, and evern young audiences. The show features and eight piece group with Mike Henry on lead vocals hailing from Shreveport, LA; well-traveled and versed in gospel, R&B, and reggae. Krystle Dos Santos, lead vocals, hails from Edmonton, Alberta. Janelle Reid hails from Toronto, Onatrio; whose soulful R&B vocals make the band soar.
THE HITSVILLE USA BAND is a hard-driving revue featuring Steve Hilliam on saxophone and Derry Byrn on trumpet. Drummer Steve Smith keep the beat. Roger Salloum on keyboards and Lisa Simons on bass round out the crew. You will experience a night of joy that will bring back memories of music that is timeless.
