The Magic of Motown
In the decade from 1961 to 1971, Motown Records had 110 top 10 hits. The company founded by Berry Gordy launched the careers of artists such as Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations and the Jackson 5. The Magic of Motown brings the great music of these legendary groups and others beyond the sixties to life with great harmonies and choreography backed up by a six-piece band that is a show in itself. Martha Reeves, Smokey Robinson and more “stop by” as the dazzling dance routines, glittering costumes and outstanding musicianship take you back to the soundtrack of your life.
The music is non-stop, with hit after hit. Songs like “Ain’t No Mountain,” ”Signed, Sealed Delivered,” “Dancing in the Streets,” “My Cherie Amour,” and “Heatwave” are recreated as audiences, who can’t help themselves, turn the show into a party. There are sing-alongs to songs like Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long” and The O’Jay’s “Love Train,” but you don’t have to know Motown to be swept away by the high energy and sheer fun of a show that keeps on keeping on. Performers Larry Johnson, Michael White, Greg Woods and Candee Rivers are your hosts for this musical journey.
The Lyric will rock that night. How sweet it will be if you’re there, too.
