Motor City Sounds pay tribute to the classic era of Motown and Soul music.  Packing dance floors wherever they play, MCS bring an energy that can only be created by a live 10-piece band.  Performing songs from artists such as Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, The Supremes, Martha & The Vandellas, The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding.  Not just another cover band, "Motor City Sounds" recreates the sound and atmosphere of Motown and Soul from the 60s and early 70s, with authentic arrangements and instrumentation. ​Featuring top-class musicians from around Victoria, including an X-Factor finalist, a former member of the John Butler Trio, and sessions with top Australian artists such as Geoff Achison, John McNamara, Brett Garsed and Neil Murray. Available to perform a purely Motown tribute or a full night of Soul hits from many a favourite artist. Motown music was forged from the idea that African-American artists could and should be heard on the same radio stations as any other musical act. The label and the music brought black and white together.  Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music as an African American-owned record label that achieved significant crossover success.
