Motown – Tribute by Dancing in the Street at Wheeler’s Hill Hotel, Satellite Lounge
Was my first ever visit to the Satellite lounge and am impressed with its classy atmosphere and great bands that are regularly featured at the venue.
The following edited extract about the Band and the show has been taken from the Satellite Lounge Webpage Satellite Lounge webpage
In 1962 the Motortown Revue took the Sound of Young America and hit the road, filling theatres and dance floors across the USA.
With a band featuring some of the best and most experienced musicians in Melbourne, Dancing In The Street captured the essence of the great Motown sound.. The Dancing In The Street performers are no strangers to the stage, having performed in Melbourne for many years, in all manner of performances, from theatre productions to tributes to artists such as Joe Cocker and Ray Charles.
