The Motown Experience

By: Curtis Drogmiller

 Novi was Rocking “N” Rolling to the sweet sounds of Motown Music from the 50’s and 60’s on Thursday October 9, 2014 at the Novi Middle School Auditorium.   The 50’s-60’s Music Spectacular was presented by the Fraternal Order of Police Southwestern Oakland County Lodge #128. The Motor Town All-Stars performed an electrifying concert for a packed auditorium performing all of Motown’s greatest hits- the music of The Temptations, The Miracles, The Four Tops, The Jackson Five, The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Martha and the Vandellas and The Capitals.

The Motor Town All-Stars features former members of The Miracles, The Capitals and The Temptations: David Findley, Doug Gaddy, George Wilson and Charles Franklin. The band didn’t miss a beat and the vocals were truly spectacular giving fans an unforgettable evening of music. The near two hour performance started at 7:00 p.m. and concluded with members signing autographs and posing for pictures with fans. The musical group will be performing in the future with Martha Reeves.
