MOTOWN. Just the name evokes sounds and images of a past musical era full of great artists, classic songs, smooth choreography and exciting stage shows. Well, it's not all gone.

MOTOWN & MORE brings it all back with an ensemble of today's most talented artists. Vocalists Gene McBride, Vic Frierson, Karen Linette, Deborah Poole-Williams and Cliff Winder--each phenomenal in their own right--come together with exquisite harmonies to recreate classics and develop new musical arrangements. For the holidays, MOTOWN & MORE: A Holiday Celebration offers a brand new show with those special tunes that bring the season in with style--The Temptations’ “Silent Night” and “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,” Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song,” Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas,” and Eartha Kitt’s “Santa Baby” —just to name a few.

MOTOWN & MORE: A Holiday Celebration is a seasonal favorite and has sold out Rams Head On Stage in past years.

Led by Musical Director multi-instrumentalist Gerry Gillespie (keyboards), the six piece musical ensemble of Motown & More also features saxophonists Art Sherrod, Jr. and Eddie Baccus, Jr., while producing a nostalgic evening of fun and excitement. Additional band members include: Marvin Miller, Jr., (Drums), Craig Alston (bass) and Stanley Cooper (Guitar).
