NEW GLASGOW – It’s hard to deny that the second a song by the Supremes or the Miracles comes on the radio, you start involuntarily doing the Jerk or the Mashed Potato.

Although most of the original Motown artists have passed on or retired, their memory and passion lives on in a funky and fantastic 13-piece band from Halifax, The Sounds of Motown.

This rock-solid rhythm and horn section along with their sassy singers will be doing their best to recapture some of that old-school soul on May 24 in New Glasgow.

The Sounds of Motown Band came about as a result of the vision, and passion for Motown music, of the late Leo MacKenzie.

MacKenzie, who also played guitar with the band, put together this impressive ensemble that has been wowing audiences from their first show, a release from Summer Street Industries says.

The Sounds of Motown Band offer a unique, powerful and exciting entertainment experience that brings joy to all who come out to the shows, the release says.

Featured performers include: Sam Moon, Henry Lewis, Cyndi Cain, Pat Forde, Carl Thomas, Michelle Durling, Doug MacKay, Jim Ralph, Wayne Baker, Garrie Cook, James Logan, Simon Oakey, and Eric Sproul.

Tickets are $15 and are available at Summer Street or by calling 755-1745.

This is a 19 and over event.

Doors open at 3 p.m. for the 4 p.m. show.

Organizations: Sounds of Motown Band, Street Industries

Geographic location: New Glasgow, Halifax
