Motown & Beyond Friday Night Soul Classics @ Foundry 616

28 June 2024 8:00 pm

Description

Motown & Beyond is a 7-piece Sydney-based band featuring an amazing talent lineup, bringing to life all your favourite soul, R&B, and pop classics. It celebrates music from the Motown era (1959-the present), including greats such as Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Eddie Floyd, Grover Washington, The Temptations, James Brown as well as later artists inspired by the Motown style such as Eric Clapton, The Doors, Bryan Ferry, The Rolling Stones, Human Nature, Gloria Gaynor, Tina Turner and Amy Winehouse.
Originally Motown music was specifically written and mixed to sound good on car radios (in Detroit where the style was born) and is characterised by a thumping back beat which made everyone want to get up and dance.
Added to this Motown sound is the characteristic sound of brass, represented in our ensemble by saxophone.
Our band goes ‘beyond’ Motown to play soulful tunes, high-energy songs with dazzling vocals, cool songs that will make you want to get up and dance, tap your feet or sing along, or just relax and enjoy your favourite songs from the ‘60’s, 70’s through to recent pop classics.
