Inside Track series: “Motor City Soul Revue” featuring Mojoflo & special guests
March 2, 2013
Saturday, 9:00 p.m. (DJ Drastic at 8:00 p.m.)
Columbus’ own MojoFlo pays tribute to the famed “Hitsville U.S.A.” label and the artists and songs that exemplified “The Motown Sound.”
Jazz is often called America’s music. However in early 1960s Detroit, a small group of black entrepreneurs, musicians, and entertainers began cultivating a sound that would become as much a part of our collective culture as baseball and every bit as beloved as apple pie. Today we all know the Motown songs and artists just as well as any Ellington or Gershwin tune. So come sing and dance along as Columbus’ favorite neo-funk band MojoFlo joins forces with members of the Columbus Jazz Orchestra and a cast of local music all-stars to present an evening of classic hits from Motown’s golden era. The show will feature all the hit songs you love from such legendary artists as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Smokey Robinson, and Diana Ross & The Supremes just to name a few! Experience your favorite songs live – they’ll have you singing, swaying, and “dancing in the street!” DJ Drastic will open the show at 8:00 p.m. with a Motown-inspired mix!
