MARTHA REEVES & THE VANDELLAS
Martha Reeves & The Vandellas
The band behind classic hits such as Nowhere to Run, My Baby Loves Me, Jimmy Mack, and Dancing In The Street bring the sound of Motown to Komedia Bath on Thursday August 10.
When looking for the perfect presentation of the Motown sound and style, few fit the bill as well as Martha Reeves & The Vandellas. It was 1963 when they moved from being Marvin Gaye’s original backup singers to stars in their own right with Come and Get These Memories, Heat Wave, and Quicksand.
One of Motown’s most enduring and beloved stars, Reeves and her Vandellas – her sisters, Lois (who joined the group in 1967) and Delphine (who came aboard in 1980) – remain in high demand, heating up clubs, casinos, concert stages, colleges and music festivals across the globe.
Reeves is the recipient of the Dinah Washington Award, a Rhythm n’ Blues Foundation Pioneer Award, a Black Woman in Publishing Legends Award, and has been inducted in the Alabama, Soul, Rock and Roll, and Vocal Group halls of fame. Martha Reeves & The Vandellas are listed among Rolling Stone magazine’s 100 Immortal Artists.
The concert promoter is Wales-based Orchard Entertainment, Regional Promoter of the Year in the UK Live Music Business Awards, and a regular promoter in Aberystwyth. Orchard’s Pablo Janczur said: “When you talk of Motown legends they don’t come much bigger than Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, so it’s a great privilege to bring their iconic hits to Bath in August when you can guarantee Dancing in the Street.”
