A musical History of Soul Music in America
The Boston Soul Revue takes you on a musical journey, tracing the roots of this uniquely American art form from the Blues, the early music of Ray Charles, on to the Doo Wop beginnings of the James Brown and the origins of Funk, then Memphis Soul featuring classics by Aretha, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, and Sam and Dave. Turning northward to Detroit, tribute is paid to the glory days of Motown with hits from the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, and Stevie Wonder. Each song is put in context with a brief introduction by veteran frontman, Ronnie “Mr. Motion” Valentine. Winding up in the 1970’s with a “Philly Sound” set, a Harold Melvin classic features the original Bluenotes’ saxophonist Reginald Gaylord Grant performing live on stage. in the aisles. Of course a night of Soul music would not be complete without something by the great Tina Turner, and the Boston Soul Revue will have everyone dancing in the aisles with their rendition of “Proud Mary”!”
