Motown Monday’s are bringing their floor filling, soul shining, beat pounding review of the Universal timeless number ones that came straight out of Hitsville, Detroit. The Brooklyn based collective bring fire and life into the hits we all know and love. From Diana Ross and the Supremes to Stevie Wonder, the repertoire of this show will lift you off your hard-working feet and kick off your weekend the right way with a smile and glow!
Meeting every Monday in the one and only Brooklyn Music School, led by Jack Henson, the band features top international and local musicians. With the incredible vocals of Akilah Pascall, Stephanie Jolicoeur, and Ashley Kelly, these soulful singers will take you on a journey through the classics, nurturing the joyous harmonies and melodies of Motown’s greats with care and love you that you can not escape in their presence.
The powerful force of the rhythm section not only pays homage to the Legendary Funk Brothers but bring their own stamp of love and prowess to the show. With Daniela ‘The Bass’ Bauer thumping your soul, Malcolm ‘2 key’ ’Elvy shaking your body, Dynamo Derek moving feet and butts and Andrea ‘ the lift’ Fusina taking you to outer space WOAH!! A challenge would be to keep still with these cats playing for you! The band also features the soaring flute and sax skills of Les Krevsky weaving those heavenly lines that you’ll be humming all the way home. The band is also frequently joined by awesomely talented special guests, so look out for those too!
