 In the early 1960s, Detroit was Motown U.S.A. -- the automobile capital of the world. In 1959, Motown Records founder Barry Gordy gathered the best musicians from Detroit’s thriving jazz and blues scene to form his studio band, the Funk Brothers. Together they created a sound that would bridge the racial divide and produce more number-one hits than the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Elvis, and The Beatles combined. Join us as Mount Prospect’s own Jose Sandoval presents a solo piano concert and discussion celebrating the spirit of Motown and its influence on soul, R&B, and rock. Featured songs include “My Girl,” “Heard It Through the Grapevine,” and “Just My Imagination.” This event is sponsored by the MPPL Foundation in recognition of Black History Month.
