Went with 4 couples and it was good music but they threw in the racial card when they started talking about how chocolate was now in and better showing and smiling which in this day of black hollering about the flag and race we didn't pay money to go to a show to hear about black issues. That is not... More

Took a friend to this show last night, based on TA reviews. We are in our 40s/20s, and we both enjoyed the show immensely. We did not eat dinner at the theatre, so cannot comment on the quality of food/service. The show lasts every bit of two hours, with an intermission. Seats were fairly comfortable - padded chairs without arms,... More

We love your show as much as we love ours and we love our guests :) We have been pleased with all our friendships from Europe and American since 1981 when our fathers were opening up the new era of the Global Personal Freedom in Poland and Ronald Reagan was our POWER from America to Vatican so we can now...

This was a fantastic show with great costumes, choreography, visuals, and a very talented cast! All the favorite songs from the top Motown groups from years gone by. High energy, audience participation, and wonderful southern hospitality! The staff of the Grand Majestic Theater were marvelous. This was a quality show and you get a lot for your money! They sing...

What a way to wrap up our stay in Tennessee. Those guys are amazingly talented. The food was also pretty decent. I will be sure to catch this show again.

The music was amazing and I couldn't believe how much talent there is in such a small group. I wish there was a little more room in the seating area, but once the show started I didn't notice the space issue.

This show is a must see, if you are an old school lover like myself, you will enjoy the beautiful voices covering your favorite old school hits. Love love loved the show, the singers interact with the crowd and get everyone up and out of their seats, had a wonderful time would definitely go again,

My wife and I have been to most shows in Pigeon Forge and this one is hands down the BEST! We opted to include the dinner with the show and the meal was served hot and delicious! It included Chicken and Pasta, along with vegetables, and mashed potatoes, with apple cobbler for desert. Apple cobbler for dessert! Everyone around us... More

I enjoyed it as great entertainment. The performers are wonderful singers and dancers. I just don't think they are true to the Motown traditions. The rhythm section is apparently local, and while very tight, they do not resemble the style of the original studio musicians (like James Jamerson, etc.) I also don't see how you can do Motown music with...
