The music and the magic of A Motown Christmas Spectacular come to the Clermont PAC just in time to get you into the holiday spirit! We’ve taken the concept of a Motown concert to a whole new level. The Motortown All-Stars feature an all-star line-up of vocalists and musicians assembled from the ranks of the Capitols and the Miracles and former members of the Temptations. These vocalists have each performed with Motown legends on stages around the world and now they’ve come together to deliver all the biggest Motown hits, complete with impeccable harmonies, flashy outfits and that dazzling choreography. A live band of the finest players out of Detroit (complete with live brass) adds yet another level of excitement to those instantly-recognizable grooves. You’ll hear all the Temptations, Four Tops, Jackson Five, Stevie Wonder and Supremes’ hits you know and love like “My Girl”, “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg”, “Ooh Baby, Baby”, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” as well as holiday classics like “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and “Silent Night” performed in that inimitable Motown style.
Plus special guest stars… Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and Motown legends The Original Vandellas! Annette Beard-Helton and Rosalind Ashford Holmes began their career with Berry Gordy at Motown in 1962 and have stood the test of time. From touring the world to being one of the very first “girl groups” inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the group’s importance in the history of American music is well-documented. Rolling Stone Magazine has named the Vandellas to their list of the “100 Greatest Artists of All-Time.” Don’t miss this chance to see authentic rock and roll legends in action. The Vandellas’ hits include “Come and Get These Memories”, “(Love Is Like a) Heat Wave ”, “Jimmy Mack”, “Dancing in the Street”, “Quicksand”, “Nowhere to Run” and many others.
So, “Get Ready”… It’s the most wonderful time of the year and this will be both groups’ only area appearance this holiday season.
