So what was the Motown Sound?
Great melodies, lots of tambourines and hand clapping, blaring horns, interplay between the lead singer and his or her backup vocalists, driving bass lines and foot-slapping drum parts.
The sheer number of chart-topping artists, musicians, and groups produced by Motown defied comprehension: Martha and the Vandellas, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Gladys Knight and the Pips, The Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye. All became part of what would come to be known as the Motown Sound.
'Hitsville - The Sound of Motown' will take you back to those days with authentically recreated sounds and costumes. Everything you hear is played and sung by musicians and vocalists on the night... no backing tracks!
With a very high quality sound system and lighting, 'Hitsville' will put on a lively show that everyone who ever listened to Motown will enjoy from the first song to the last!
