Motor City Revue:
Capturing the Distinct Motown Sound
A little more than half a century ago, a new sound took shape in and around Detroit that revolutionized the music industry. Today, the all-star Motor City Revue faithfully recreates that signature Motown sound…and, in the process,
takes audiences on a journey back in time to where it all began.
Although there are many bands that cover Motown tunes, few strive to match the vocal harmonies and
instrumental mix that distinguished the original recordings. Motor City Revue was formed to offer music
lovers an authentic tribute to the artists and songs that defined a generation.
Vocalist Layonne Holmes (member of Tim McLoone and the Shirleys and Bob Bandiera's Jersey Shore
Rock 'n' Soul Revue) and Bassist/Musical Director Gerald Carboy (of David Sancious & Tone and Barry
Miles & Silverlight fame) enlisted some of Jersey's A-list musicians to respectfully pay homage to this
world renowned sound.
Band members include:
Lead vocalists: Ricky Collins and Layonne Holmes
Bass: Gerald Carboy
Guitar/vocals: Ralph Notaro
Keyboards/vocals: Arne Wendt
Drums/percussion: David Anthony
Tenor sax: Rick Brunermer
Motor City Revue will have you dancing and singing along to the songs immortalized by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, The Supremes and countless others.
