Without a doubt, the Motown sound has left an indelible stamp on the hearts, souls, and minds of several generations of fans worldwide. Over the years, many of the artists and writers responsible for creating this incredible body of work have passed on. The music, however, lives on through movies, radio, television commercials, collectible CDs, dance halls, weddings, and karaoke clubs. It's not just the songs, but the memories associated with them that have forever imprinted the Motown sound in the hearts and souls of music fans. Without even consciously realizing it, we all know every lyric, melody, and instrumental phrases associated with the songs - so much so that if a live band plays the songs and leaves out one of these memorable licks, we know it and subconsciously add it in ourselves.
Enter Paul Korman and his visionary quest to create the ultimate Motown tribute band. He has put together an amazing array of seasoned musicians and singers that he's either played with or wanted to play with over the years. Together they have become Dr. K's Motown Revue. This outstanding band of musicians and signers takes you on a very realistic journey through the Motown sound and makes you want to sing along on every familiar song they play. This band has kept the Motown sound true to its roots, transporting you back to another era with each and every performance. Audience members both young and not so young can't help dancing to that Motown beat, often leaving at the end of the night asking where can they see and hear the band next.
The appeal of Dr. K's Motown Revue is due in large part to the perfect blend of the Motown-era costumes they wear and the band's pairing of outstanding singers with Funk Brothers-caliber instrumentalists. Each singer is quite capable of fronting any band as a soloist, and the combination of singers is more than enough to authentically deliver the vocal sound of the Motown roster of artists. The result is a powerhouse performance that adds not only to the band's reputation, but to the reputation of any venue that books them.
