I am a 55 year old black male. I grew up in the 60's 30 min. from Motown. I am a singer that has always enjoyed music. I've seen other shows that attempt to recreate the soulful music groups of the past; the outcome? mediocre vocals, new arrangements of some the most memorable parts of the song. However,' Soul of...

The theater management was very poor. The web page was not properly kept up to date. We wanted to see The American Hit Parade & dates & times were inaccurate. We wanted to buy tickets ahead of time on line, finally called and the show was listed online as playing at 2:00 on a Wednesday and we were told there... More

I was really looking forward to this show after all the great review from others,but I was a little disappointed to be honest.Music and talent was good,but a little too much egocentric showmanship by some of the singers was just too much for my taste. I like to be entertained ,but I prefer to hear the original songs,not a new... More

Two hours of non-stop entertainment with top quality singers and band members. This show was better than some top-name concerts that I have attended. If you love 60's and 70's soul music, this is the show for you. My throat is still sore from screaming, and my whole body is sore from being in constant motion.

The talent of the individual performers alone is astounding. The range of the base singer was amazing. The female singer was spot on for Aretha. The comedy of the characters made this a very entertaining evening.

The show was absolutely outstanding. Very talented individuals. My only complaint is, I purchased a DVD of the show and it was not viewable, I arrived home and attempted to watch. Call the Majestic Theater and they said they would sent a replacement, to date have not received.
