The Sounds of Motown Coming to Kaskaskia College Jane Knight Auditorium

In the early 60s some of the most iconic names in the history of popular music were discovered in the Motor City of Detroit, Michigan.  These acts dominated the pop charts throughout the decade and launched a cultural phenomenon better known simply as “Motown Sound.” Kaskaskia College is pleased to bring that sound to the Jane Knight Auditorium on Saturday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m. as it welcomes “Masters of Soul”.   

 

“Masters of Soul” looks to stir up the old memories of Motown by recreating many of the chart-topping songs, as well as the dress and look of Motown groups.  Featuring music made famous by record labels including Motown and Stax, Masters of Soul is a celebration of the legendary songs and performers that defined soul music. The 90-minute show features stylishly costumed, fully choreographed performances of both male and female groups backed by a live band.  All designed to let the audience take a stroll down memory lane to relive, or discover for the first time, the incredible harmonies and smooth moves made famous by great recording acts including: The Temptations, Gladys Knight and the Pips, The Four Tops, Jackson Five, Smokey Robinson, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Commodores, Stevie Wonder and more.    

 

Regular tickets for “Masters of Soul” are $25 with a $14 discounted ticket available to youths 18 and under.  Tickets can be purchased by calling the Kaskaskia College Box Office at 618-545-3223, or by going online at www.kaskaskia.edu/soe. ​
