Saluting one of the greatest times in musical history, Masters of Motown is recreating an entire Motor City experience.
The10-member cast, including three female vocalists, three male vocalists, guitar, bass, drums and keys, has come together to reproduce the style, sound and ultimate feel that Motown brought to us years ago. They become Stevie Wonder, Four Tops, Diane Ross and the Supremes, and even the Jackson Five.
The show features an entirely live performance, with seasoned musicians and performers catering to every whim of an oldies lover. During the ultimate stroll down memory lane, Masters of Motown 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.
Masters of Motown has been called the most entertaining history lesson ever performed! This show authentically reproduces the look, choreography, style and sound made famous by a record label that was relatively unknown at the time but went on to profoundly influence the history of popular music. The performance goes beyond the music to preserve the integrity of the entire Motown experience. For many, Masters of Motown is the ultimate stroll down memory lane. For younger generations, the show offers a way to experience a period in our country’s past that produced many of the greatest music acts ever recorded.
The show features a completely live performance with seasoned musicians and world-class performers from The TFC Band. This group has toured extensively world-wide for more than 30 years, performing at private events, festivals, casinos, corporate events and military bases from coast to coast and overseas, including tours of Europe and Africa. After having toured together for decades, The TFC Band created the Masters of Motown show in 2008 as a way to heighten the experience for their fans and deliver the full package—a stage show which captures the sights, sounds and feel of the Motown era.
Based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the 10-person cast of Masters of Motown has performed to numerous sold-out audiences and garnered rave reviews across the country at venues ranging from community theaters and universities to performing arts venues and concert halls.
It’s a celebration, a chance to reminisce and homage to those who made musical history.
