MOTOWN legends Martha Reeves and The Vandellas will be getting into the Christmas party spirit when they perform live at Eric’s in Liverpool on Friday, December 21.
It was 1962 that Motown’s artist and repertoire director William ‘Mickey’ Stevenson first heard the voice that would become synonymous with ‘the sound of young America’ – Martha Reeves.
She was put together with a group then called the Del Phi’s. They recorded I’ll Have to Let Him Go and Martha and the Vandellas was born.
A string of hits followed, including Heat Wave, Quicksand, In My Lonely Room, Nowhere to Run and, of course, the Motown anthem Dancing In The Street.
Martha just completed a four-year run as a member of the Detroit City Council but now she is back on the road full time.
Tickets for the concert at Eric’s are £25. For details, call 0151 236 9994.
