WE'RE LUCKY to live in a time in which we can still go see the founding fathers of Motown cut the rug and fill a room with their classic melodies. With The Motown Experience, a super-group comprised of past and present members of legendary acts The Temptations, The Miracles, and The Capitols, the soulmen have arrived right at our doorstep—don’t miss ‘em while you have the chance.
They’ll be breaking out the hits, like “My Girl,” “Get Ready,” “Cool Jerk,” and more, but it’s a festive occasion, as well; the group will inject that classic soul into Christmas favorites. Get ready for flashy costumes, impeccable harmonies, and the sound that defined a generation and inspired all those to follow. Dancing and singing along is encouraged, so bring a partner—and maybe swing by Record Store Day at Graveface and grab some vinyl for practicing.
If you’re anything like me and find yourself flipping back to that 24/7 Christmas radio in hopes that “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” by The Jackson 5 or The Supremes’ “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” is on, A Motown Christmas is sure to put you in the spirit of the season—even if it isn’t technically December yet.
Saturday, 7:30 p.m., $44-54, tickets at savannahboxoffice.com
