MARTHA & THE VANDELLAS epitomised the vibrancy and potency of the 60s Motown movement. Despite the changing tides in their once thriving motor-city-fuelled birth-place, they sang about `Dancing In The Streets’, `Quicksand’ and a `Heat Wave’ – all Top 10 hits for the girls, and more so, their bosses at the er… plant for whom they worked tirelessly; `Nowhere To Run’, `Jimmy Mack’ and `Honey Chile’ were equally evergreen and memorable hits.


Detroit, Michigan, at the turn of the 60s, was a hive of industry and, with Berry Gordy Jr. at the helm of its pop-music wing, doo-wop and R&B had merged into one big melting pot of soul. Quick to tap in to the plethora of vocal groups to emerge from nowhere (Gordy had The MIRACLES and The TEMPTATIONS “boy-bands” in his books, and solo star MARY WELLS), there was indeed a necessity to find “girl-groups” to fill a void in the soon-to-be lucrative market; The MARVELETTES were the first to show, whilst The SUPREMES and MARTHA & THE VANDELLAS signed on the dotted line in 1962.


Now nearly 60 years later, Martha Reeves with her Vandellas return to Glasgow for her annual concert of all her hits in the fitting musical East End Quarter in BAaD. 

Supporting is local northern soul hero's - Ray Harris LIVE and Friday Street Dj's.
