In the early 1960s, some of the most iconic names in the history of popular music were discovered in the Motor City of Detroit, MI. Masters of Soul is a celebration of these artists, their music, and their style. This show features stylishly-costumed and fully-choreographed tributes to both male and female Motown groups backed by a live band.
Masters of Soul-a Motown Revue, has been called the most entertaining history lesson ever performed! This show authentically reproduces the look, choreography, style and sound made famous by record labels that were relatively unknown at the time but went on to profoundly influence the history of popular music: Motown Records, Stax and others. The performance goes beyond the music to preserve the integrity of the entire Motown experience. For many, Masters of Soul is the ultimate stroll down memory lane. For younger generations, the show offers a way to experience a period in our country’s past that produced many of the greatest music acts ever recorded.
The show features a completely live performance with seasoned musicians and world-class performers from The TFC Band. This group has toured extensively worldwide for more than 40 years, performing at private events, festivals, casinos, corporate events and military bases from coast to coast and overseas, including tours of Europe and Africa. After having toured together for decades, The TFC Band created the Masters of Soul show in 2008 as a way to heighten the experience for their fans and deliver the full package—a stage show which captures the sights, sounds and feel of the Motown era.
