MOUNT VERNON — Get ready, for here they come ... to the Mount Vernon Memorial Theater on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m., The Community Concert Association of Knox County presents Masters Of Motown, co-sponsored in part by The Community Foundation.
Saluting one of the greatest times in musical history, Masters of Motown will recreate the entire Motor City experience by performing 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 known as Motown. This performance is a celebration of those 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 10-member cast includes three female vocalists, three male vocalists, guitar, bass, drums and keyboard. Together they reproduce the style, sound and feel that Motown brought to us years ago. They become Stevie Wonder, Four Tops, Diane Ross and the Supremes, and the Jackson Five.
During this stroll down memory lane, they’ll perform hits such as “Get Ready,” by the Temptations, “Dancing in the Street,” by Martha and the Vandellas and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.
Individual tickets may be purchased at the box office when the doors open at 6:30 p.m. Children and students aged 21 and under are admitted free when accompanied by a ticket holding adult.
