The Detroit Express is an outstanding 7 to 9 piece Motown show.
A breathtaking show brilliantly recreating the music of Motown legends.
It has now been over 50 years since Berry Gordy created his Motown empire back in 1959 in Detroit Michigan. Studio A was housed in a converted garage behind the building he soon dubbed Hitsville U.S.A.
It was from these humble beginnings Motown was born and still commands immense audience support and appreciation today.
For more than five decades Motown music has been played on the airwaves and both young and old will instantly recognise the distinctive tunes that have stood the test of time since that unmistakable sound was created.
Performing the unforgettable sounds of The Supremes, Martha Reeves, Four Tops, Temptations, Stevie Wonder and many more with high energy, excellent musical ability and amazing presentation.
With smooth harmonies, impressive choreography along with stunning costume changes the performance is packed with slick routines that make this a first class show.

Where did our love go Third finger left hand Get Ready
Stop her on sight (SOS ) Up the Ladder
Signed Sealed delivered Come see about me Can’t hurry love
Build me up
I’m coming out
Tear of a clown
Blame it on boogie
Nowhere to run
Dancing in the street
Ain’t no mountain high
Stop in the name of love
Please mr Postman
Keep me hanging on
Its the Same old
Ain’t too proud
I Feel Good
Needle in a Haystack
Heard it through the Grapevine
Land of 1000 dances
This Old heart of mine
Higher & Higher
Heaven must have sent you
