Get ready, ’cause here they come. The Golden Belt Community Concert Association will present Masters of Motown as its fourth concert of the 2012-13 season at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5, at the Great Bend Municipal Auditorium, Lakin and Stone.
This event is available to concert association members. Full-time students will be admitted to the concert for a $5 donation at the door by showing their school I.D. The auditorium will open at 6:30 p.m.
Masters of Motown has been called the most entertaining history lesson ever performed because it 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.
For many, this group is the ultimate stroll down memory lane. For younger generations, the show offers a way to experience a period in the country’s past that produced many of the greatest music acts ever recorded.
The 10-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 years ago with the music of Stevie Wonder, the Four Tops, Diana Ross and the Supremes, and the Jackson Five.
They perform such hits 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. Their program offers a chance to reminisce and pay homage to those who made musical history.
