Martha Reeves & The Vandellas epitomised the vibrancy and potency of the 60s Motown movement. Despite the changing tides in their once thriving motor-city-fuelled birth-place, they sang about `Dancing In The Streets’, `Quicksand’ and a `Heat Wave’ – all Top 10 hits for the girls, and more so, their bosses at the er… plant for whom they worked tirelessly; `Nowhere To Run’, `Jimmy Mack’ and `Honey Chile’ were equally evergreen and memorable hits.

Detroit, Michigan, at the turn of the 60s, was a hive of industry and, with Berry Gordy Jr. at the helm of its pop-music wing, doo-wop and R&B had merged into one big melting pot of soul. Quick to tap in to the plethora of vocal groups to emerge from nowhere (Gordy had The MIRACLES and The TEMPTATIONS “boy-bands” in his books, and solo star MARY WELLS), there was indeed a necessity to find “girl-groups” to fill a void in the soon-to-be lucrative market; The MARVELETTES were the first to show, whilst The SUPREMES and MARTHA & THE VANDELLAS signed on the dotted line in 1962.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Martha Reeves & The Vandellas are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
