often see motown events all over the place

motown theme shows at theatres, mainstream motown weekenders at local hotels, motown nites at pubs etc

question is..

has it now just got to be a term here in uk along lines of karaoke, quiz nites, abba revial, blue bros etc ?

Yes. Although I'd say that Northern Soul is also rapidly en route to the same description. :lol:

Yes, been that way for a long while. They are clearly not aimed at the likes of us although if an act was on then that might be of interest. The type I think you are referring to Mike wouldn't interest me.

Depends what "Motown" 45's are on the playlist though surly??

I collect Motown in a big way and yes there is the ones everybody knows even the ones we would call "Northern"......remember one thing Motown/Tamla/Soul/Gordy/V.I.P./ etc...are ALL just record labels under one umbrella......"Motown"

I know, i could do an hour spot at any venue (all dancers) and you would not know it was "Motown" that was being spun.

I think when you see a Motown night advertised it is more than likely Jimmy Mack & My Girl rather than Suspicion and Come On Back To Me Baby.

Thats quite true Chalky, In the years gone by I too didn`t realise Motown has such an array of music but i was soon banged to rights on that one :yes::lol: but i do think they should specify state

what sort of motown it will be as i for one wouldn`t like to go and pay to listen to "Baby Love" its ok doing the housework to :thumbsup:

Norman soul and a bit of Motown is the new Bingo, and not the half hour bingo played in the working mens clubs in between the turns, the night out at the bingo hall of the 70's is now a night of Motown for the 40/50 somethings, :ohmy::yes:

"we" may not like it but in just about ever town across the UK these type of nights give middle-aged people a night out ,and whilst they are not the majority on heres cup of tea they'll generally be packed.Is that a bad thing probably not ,just so long as you know what you're getting.Having been to a few over the years and so long as you dont take it seriously there a good laugh,but dont thing you're gonna be amazed at the play list because it'll be chart motown,atlantic & disco..And if thats there or your cup of tea then fair play.
