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
