This event has been and gone.

Featuring

The Commodores

Pop-funk ensemble The Commodores were the backbone of Motown's success in the 1970s; nobody was better at knocking out head-bobbing grooves or romantic love songs. Lionel Richie's departure in 1982 robbed the band of their ballad writer, but the band kept playing. Today the band is reduced to a core of three, which includes Walter 'Clyde' Orange (drums), William King (trumpet) and singer J.D. Nicholas (formerly of Heatwave), but they are still as active as ever, performing around the world and more importantly - still having fun!

After leaving Motown in 1972, Martha continued to expand her musical horizons, establishing herself as a singer/songwriter with few limitations, singing rock, jazz, country, gospel, blues and classical. Martha continues to perform, both solo and with her Vandellas - sisters Lois (Motown-era Vandella since 1967) and Delphine (since mid-1980s).
