You know it’s Motown when you hear it!

Opt-Post-Image

Defined as soul music, Motown (Motown Records) was a driving force behind some of the biggest names in music. Individual artists and groups like: Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, and The Jackson 5, among many others, would come to be known as the Motown Sound in the sixties and seventies.

For the first time ever, Motown Soul brings you the exquisite vocal harmonies of Cathy Borges, Marlene O’Neill, and Amoy Levy, known as The Tonettes, performing alongside special guest performer from Las Vegas, Nevada, currently starring in his hit show from Bally’s Casino, the man with all of the moves, Grady Harrell. Together, the Tonettes and Grady will deliver a powerful and soulful performance as you have never heard or seen before, bringing you back in time to that special era when music and soul came together.

With songs like: “Higher and Higher” (Jackie Wilson), “My Girl” (The Temptations), “You Can’t Hurry Love” (Supremes), “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” (Marvin Gaye), and “Natural Woman” (Aretha Franklin), you’ll be singing and dancing all night long to this timeless music when you hear it live with the Rockin’ Royals Showband.

Dirt Road Stories

Dean Brody is a 3-time winner of the CCMA Award for Songwriter of the Year, and is currently nominated for “8th Day”, from his sixth album, Beautiful Freakshow, which hit the #1 spot on the Mediabase Canadian Country Airplay Charts. Brody’s reputation for penning thoughtful, articulate, original narratives in music began back in 2009 with the release of “Brothers”, a touching song about a loved one leaving for the military, which resonated both north and south of the border.

dean-768x512

Celebrated songs such as “Trail in Life”, “Another Man’s Gold”, “Bounty”, have gone on to place Brody in a unique category all his own, rising beyond the conventional tracks that can be heard on mainstream radio in lyrical composition, and yet still retaining conventional success, with Brody recently landing his 22nd Top 10 hit at country radio, with “Good Goodbye.” His ballad “Time” released in 2016, laments on the passing of time, becoming especially poignant in a social media era with less one-on-one interaction with loved ones, earned critical acclaim and a great deal of recognition, showcasing Brody’s unique ability to make people think about their actions through his lyrics.

Dean Brody is at the Homburg Theatre on October 25th.
