Martha Reeves & The Vandellas // Voices of Classic Soul, Former Lead Singers of the Temptations, Platters, Drifters and Four Tops

Although she was born in Eufaula, Motown soul sensation Martha Reeves moved northward with her family to Detroit before she was a year old, growing up in the metropolitan musical climate of “Motor City U.S.A.” Along with her high-powered backup singers, the Vandellas, Martha Reeves created some of the most irresistible and unforgettable dance records of the 1960s. By the middle of the decade, Martha and the Vandellas had established themselves as Motown’s earthier, funkier alternative to the sweetened urban soul sounds of Diana Ross and the Supremes. Reeves and her Vandellas released a steady volley of explosive pop and rhythm-and-blues chart busters including “(Love is Like a) Heat Wave”, “Quicksand”, “Nowhere To Run”, “I’m Ready for Love”, “My Baby Loves Me”, “Jimmy Mack”, and so many more!

Joining Martha on Stage will be Voices of Classic Soul.  Attending a performance by Voices Of Classic Soul is like getting a master class on Motown, Musical Magic Moments, and much more! Voices Of Classic Soul members have been around the world and back again as the lead singers of some of the most legendary vocal groups of all time. Every Voices Of Classic Soul performance features a trio of top vocalists selected from an “A” list roster of former lead singers of the Temptations, Platters, Forever Motown, Main Ingredient, Four Tops, Drifters, and more. It’s truly the best of the best: a top-shelf experience. Voices Of Classic Soul concert attendees are treated to incredible showmanship, classic dance moves, and some of the biggest hits of all time, including “My Girl,” “Ain’t No Woman Like The One I Got,” “Get Ready,” “The Great Pretender,” “Baby I Need Your Loving,” “Only You,” “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,” “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” “Under The Boardwalk,” “It’s The Same Old Song,” “On Broadway,”  “Everybody Plays The Fool,” “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Save The Last Dance For Me,” “Can’t Get Next To You” and many, many more.
