Seriously, tongue-twisting title aside, the Motown Downtown Tribute is easily one of Branson’s best kept music secrets - it’s the little show in the little theater that’s a great big bang of a fun time! It would be nearly impossible to find a music fan, no matter their age, who couldn’t recite a few lyrics from a Motown classic - these songs have become deeply ingrained into the music culture of our country -- as American and beloved as mom, apple pie, and Chevrolet! The genre brings to mind classy, coordinated suits and dresses, impeccable hairdos, shiny shoes delivering smooth dance moves and, most importantly, music with meaningful lyrics, incredible rhythms, and a beat that just can’t be...well, just can’t be beat!
Everyone knows what you mean when you say “Motown music,” but not everyone knows that Motown was actually a record company from Detroit - created by music-producing legend, Berry Gordy, it made household names out of acts like Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Mary Wells, Martha & The Vandellas, and more. There were also groups, like The Originals, who formed the foundation of the record label - those who not only had their own hit songs, but provided the background vocals for hits by Jimmy Ruffin - “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted,” and Stevie Wonder - “For Once in My Life.” Motown Downtown Tribute pays homage to The Originals, and to several of the superstar Motown acts, including The Temptations, as well as other popular soul and R&B singers and groups from the Motown era - the late 1950’s through the mid-1970’s. And to say they’re simply a tribute show would not do them justice, they deliver the classics with big talent, huge hearts, and a whole lot of pure soul!
Just like other music fans out there, we love great big shows in enormous arenas and concert halls, complete with dazzling special effects and with every seat seemingly miles away from the stage, but when we really want to feel close to the music and connect with the entertainers, we know just where to go - we head on down to Historic Downtown for a nice dose of Motown, available only at the Hot Hits Theatre when the Motown Downtown Tribute takes the stage!
