When looking for the perfect presentation of the Motown sound and style, few fit the bill as well as Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. It was 1963 when they moved from being Marvin Gaye’s original backup singers (“Stubborn Kind of Fellow,” “Pride & Joy,” “Hitch Hike”) to stars in their own right with the trifecta of “Come and Get These Memories,” “Heat Wave,” and “Quicksand.”
Martha Reeves and The Vandellas’ distinctive, upbeat, and uplifting music brought together pop and soul, white and black, old and young, like never before, and continues to do so to this day.
Their hits are a thing of legend: In addition to the aforementioned, they include the gospel-tinged “Nowhere to Run,” the classic soul favorite “My Baby Loves Me,” the pop anthem “Jimmy Mack,” and the signature, “Dancing In The Street.” Martha Reeves exclaimed, “I will always dance in the street.” She added, “I am excited to be touring and to stop in the Mississippi Delta the birthplace of America’s music.”
Make a night of it with your friends. Special discount rates for churches and other groups are available, call the Ticket Office at 662-846-4625 for details. Don’t miss Martha Reeves, May 27 at the BPAC.
