2020: When looking for the perfect presentation of the 1960s Motown soul, look no further than Motown's original soul diva, Miss Martha Reeves and her Vandellas. With hits such as "Come and Get These Memories," "Heat Wave," "Nowhere to Run," "Jimmy Mack," and "Dancing in the Street," Martha Reeves and the Vandellas earned their place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Rolling Stone's list of Immortal Artists. The ladies put on a first-class, high energy show of up to 90 minutes including their hits, as well as tributes to the likes of Sam Cooke, Billie Holiday, and Marvin Gaye. They travel with their own rhythm section and require four local horns.
Named “Motown’s ultimate soul diva,” she remains in constant demand on casino, club, concert, and festival stages around the world.
As her Agent, Mark Sonder accompanied Ms. Reeves to Las Vegas in October 2019 so she could receive The Casino Entertainment Legend Award with ceremonies at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Please view Getty Images from this event including Martha & Mark posing.
Reeves is a member of the Rock & Roll, Soul, Rhythm n’ Blues, Vocal Group and Alabama Music halls of fame. Martha Reeves & the Vandellas are listed among Rolling Stone magazine’s “100 Immortal Artists” and Martha herself was named one of the “30 Top Lead Singers of all Time.”
The former Detroit City Council representative continues to be an international ambassador for both the Motown label and Detroit, making sure that you “can’t forget the Motor City.”
