Jammin In July
The Centenary Stage Company takes us back to the early 60's with The Masters of Motown July 20th at 8 pm. In the early 60's, some of the most iconic names in the history of popular music were discovered in the Motor City of Detroit, MI, better known simply as Motown. Masters of Motown is a celebration of these artists, their music and style. The show features stylishly costumed fully choreographed tributes to both male and female groups backed by a live band.
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.
