In the early 60s, Detroit was on the move. It was Motown U.S.A. , home to major auto makers, and the newly formed Motown Records. Motown founder Berry Gordy not only lent an ear to a different kind of music in the air from a newly energized city. He coined it “the sound of young America….” And believed it would break down the barriers between black and white popular music.
Only one group, dedicated to recreating the Motown experience in both music and dance, understands the similarities and differences of the Motown Sound. They are The Fabulous Motown Revue. A wide range of audiences nationwide, including major corporations and organizations, have seen and heard for themselves what could only be described as true Motown. Mo’feeling….Mo’sound….Mo’everything…
The Fabulous Motown Revue features many players who were actually “walkin’ the walk and talkin’ the talk” in the heart of the 60’s Motown Movement. That’s the secret to their success.
Performing together for over 25 years, many members of The Fabulous Motown Revue have played with The Four Tops, Martha Reeves, Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Mary Wilson, The Temptations, and many other Motown favorites.
Able to be personalized to fit any occasion, the show’s format and length can be tailored to meet the needs of each client. A standard show by The Fabulous Motown Revue is a multi-hour experience as multi-faceted as the Detroit assembly lines on which Motown was born.
Whether you’re looking for a dance band that twists and shouts or background music for an intimate gathering…The Fabulous Motown Revue is the choice…uptown, downtown, MOTOWN!

Thank you for another outstanding performance at this year’s Book of Lists Party! With the climate of our country and new budget restraints, I did not think we would be able to use The Fabulous Motown Revue this year. But after thinking about what makes this event so much fun and so successful, I thought – how could I not use The Revue!
As usual, I have received nothing but rave reviews regarding your performance from everyone who attended. The energy and enthusiasm of The Revue is certainly contagious as many of our guests joined in mid song portraying their favorite Temptation or Supreme.
Once again, thank you for helping to make this year’s event a success and I look forward to working with The Fabulous Motown Revue next year – and many years to come!

I don’t care who you are, when it’s your wife’s 50th birthday party, you’re nervous about everything, especially the music. You want her to be surprised. You want it to be perfect.
The Fabulous Motown Revue made the difference. It puts the icing on the cake. A spectacular production like I’ve never seen at a private party. The guests were blown away. My wife was thrilled and she will never forget it
I also appreciate the special attention to details and your personal attention in making sure everything was just perfect.
