Motor City Revue: Capturing the Distinct Motown Sound
A little more than half a century ago, a new sound took shape in and around Detroit that revolutionized the music industry. Today, the all-star Motor City Revue faithfully recreates that signature Motown sound…and, in the process, takes audiences on a journey back in time.
Although there are many bands that cover Motown tunes, few strive to match the vocal harmonies and instrumental mix that distinguished the original recordings. Motor City Revue was formed to offer music lovers an authentic tribute to the artists and songs that defi ...

Motor City Revue - Wedding Band - Matawan, New Jersey Event Location: NJ Event Type: Wedding 9th October 2019
"I just wanted to thank you for making our wedding truly magical. I cannot even count how many times I was approached at the wedding by people raving about the music. You managed to get everyone, young and old, on the dance floor, and my only complaint is that the dance floor wasn't big enough to hold everyone! You were all professional and vibrant, and you made our wedding not just the run-of-the-mill bland reception, but a captivating show! Thank you again for everything! I cannot wait to recommend Motor City Revue to friends and family. We definitely plan to come see you play in the future! Thanks!" ~ Mr. and Mrs. Robinson

Motor City Revue - Cover Band - Matawan, New Jersey Event Location: Live Show Event Type: Live Performance 28th June 2019
I have seen or should I say witnessed your show several times, all at McCloones and once outdoors in Asbury last summer. Your show is electrifying and brings sheer pleasure and complete enjoyment to everyone present. The song recreations are amazingly accurate and even more entertaining with the elements you creatively add. The dance floor is packed as such beautiful memories are brought back to life while the feeling of pure joy prompts everyone to shake their best stuff.???? Honestly Layonne, there are other bands or groups that delve into that wonderful Motown Era however none can compare to what you bring to the stage. It’s the truth. May God Bless and bring the entire band back together real soon !!!!! Best, Donald F.
