MOTOWN. Just the name evokes sounds and images of a past musical era full of great artists, classic songs, smooth choreography and exciting stage shows. Well, it's not all gone.
THE LEGACY LIVES brings it all back with an ensemble of today's most talented artists. Vocalists Vic Frierson, Karen Linette, Gene McBride, Deborah Poole-Williams and Micah Smith--each phenomenal in their own right--come together with exquisite harmonies to recreate classics and develop new musical arrangements. Since 2014, Motown & More has become a popular production in the Baltimore/Washington/Virginia region. Sell out shows at The Birchmere, Rams Head on Stage, Bethesda
Blues & Jazz Supper Club, Buchanan Hall and other noted venues lend credence to the idea that Motown is the music of our time and always brings a party.
Led by Musical Director multi instrumentalist Gerry Gillespie, the six piece ensemble of Motown & More featuring saxophonists Art Sherrod, Jr. and Eddie Baccus, Jr. , produces a nostalgic evening of fun and excitement. Additional band members include: Marvin Miller, Jr., (Drums), Craig Alston (bass) and Stanley Cooper (Guitar).
Many Motown tributes around but Motown & More brings a show that out does them all--lights, camera, action...what a production!
