Dancing In The Shadows of Motown

Ritz Randwick – Friday, 1st April 2022

Dancing In The Shadows of Motown tells the story of how Motown was the start of modern music and the influence of many following generations. Founded by Berry Gordy in 1960, Motown was known as the “Sound of Young America” and “Three Decades of Magic”.

Motown produced more hits than the Beatles, The Stones, The Beach Boys and Elvis, combined! Motown is considered the soul of modern music, and that it was indeed the start of modern contemporary and dance music as we know it today.

Motown influenced the following generation such as “Money” (the first big Motown Hit) was covered by the Beatles, and “Don’t Look Back” was a hit for Peter Tosh and Mick Jagger, “Dancing In The Street” was also a hit for Mick Jagger and David Bowie and the list goes on.

Dancing In The Shadows of Motown has been running since October 2018 and is now selling out shows across the country, including the Opera House Studio in August 2019.
