Description

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with the music of Motown featuring The Motown Band with special guest Lala Brooks, Garfield Fleming, & Brian Owens.

LaLa Brooks, the former original lead singer of the Phil Spector-produced girl group, The Crystals, with major hits in the sixties with songs including “Da Doo Ron Ron” and “Then He Kissed Me.” She also sang on the legendary Phil Spector Christmas Album!

Brian Owens is vibrantly vintage—aesthetically he follows the groove gospel of classic 1960s and 1970s soul with heavy dose of traditional quartet stylings, but it has a very “in the Main Theatrew” emotionality. Brian and his core trio, The Deacons of Soul (Shaun Robinson, Alvin Quinn and Rob Woodie) offer an experience that invites audiences to partake to hoMain Theatrer the past and attend to the present and future through performances that are about “preservation. Brian is making music with intent, art that inspires positive change. His vocals are a revelation—purposeful and passionate—he remains his own stylist while recalling the sensual urgency of Marvin Gaye, the comforting falsetto of Curtis Mayfield, and tender grit of Sam Cook.
