So, a really great Christmas present, was enjoyed by myself, my son and his partner last night, when we went to a local theatre to watch a show called, ' The Reach Out Tour'. Which was a Motown show, sung by professional singers, not a tribute band! The seven singers backed by a genuine backing band, and it was all live.
No synthesizers, no miming, real genuine voices. And music played live!
I have seen many artistes, famous and not so famous and have listened to all kinds of live and recorded material, and to say these singers, we're never out of key and clearly so talented and you have to wonder why they are not recording artistes when you consider the shocking synthetic voices you hear in modern popular music. I digress.
They sang and danced to different Motown artistes chart topping songs and they had the costumes to go with them, the choreography was very good. The hits kept coming, and the audience kept dancing and singing as the stars kept the 'party' going! The place rocked!
They were on stage for a total of two hours, with a break of thirty minutes. It was brilliant, can't give enough praise for it! They did three requests, gave away cds of the show, signed of course, posed for photos after, we're very obliging to the audience who wanted to chat and congratulate them on the performance afterwards.
The best thing I thought afterwards, was that the artistes enjoyed it! They kept smiling at each other, silent nods of heads and interacting with the audience, a young lad, about twenty even got the chance to dance for a song on stage and he was not bad either.
They did an accapello version of Under the Boardwalk, which was truly outstanding!
I've asked for another Christmas present as such for the near future!
