Dr. K's Motown Revue

Monday, July 18, at 7 pm

ONE NIGHT ONLY at Cape May’s Convention Hall.

America’s #1 Authentic Motown Revue Band comes to Cape May! 

This outstanding band of musicians and signers takes you on a realistic journey of the Motown sound, and makes you want to sing along on every familiar song they play. They keep the Motown sound true to its roots and every performance they do transports you back to another era . . . what a ride! Every audience both young and not so young can’t help dancing to that Motown beat, often leaving at the end of the night asking where can they see and hear the band next. Their appeal in large part is attributable to the perfect blend of the Motown era costumes worn and the outstanding group of singers who compliment this latter day “Funk Brothers” type band of musicians. This powerhouse performance is not to be missed!
