TEMECULA – March is Motown Month at Cabaret at The Merc. On Sunday evening, March 30, attendees will take a trip to the "Motor City" without having to experience that midwest chill! Accompanied by a live band, performers will delight the crowd with songs like "My Girl," "Ain’t No Mountain High Enough," "The Tears of a Clown," "I Heard It Through The Grapevine," and many more.

An irresistible force of social and cultural change, Berry Gordy’s legendary Motown made its mark not only on the music industry, but society at large, with a sound that has become one of the most significant musical accomplishments and stunning success stories of the 20th century.

Artists like Diana Ross & The Supremes, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson & the Jackson 5, the Marvelettes, and many others communicated and brought together a racially divided country and segregated society, around the world, touching all people of all ages and races.

No other record company in history has exerted such an enormous influence on both the style and substance of popular music and culture. With more than 180 #1 hit songs worldwide and counting, that influence is still being felt today, from pop to hip-hop music. Motown recently celebrated the 55th anniversary of the company’s founding.

The concert on March 30 will feature performances by Adryon De Leon, Leonard Patton, Tamika Peoples, Arthur Ross, and Michael Washington, accompanied by musical director Leigh Byrket Sutherlin at the keys, Will Tone on the guitar, Jeff "Sly" Simon on bass, and Bill Ray on drums. It will be produced by Jordan Beck and J. Scott Lapp.
