Ultimate 60's Motones VS. Jerseys
Get ready to rumble! It’s a battle between the Motones and the Jerseys and the audience decides who reigns Supreme.
Two “teams” of male vocalists vie for supremacy in this song-and-dance fest. It’s the ultimate ‘60s sing-off, featuring talented singers and nearly 50 songs from artists like Marvin Gaye, the Temptations, the Drifters and Stevie Wonder dueling it out with the songs from the Beach Boys, Herman’s Hermits and the Beatles. They arrive on stage to a “Rocky”-style theme and an emcee, (female), who keeps the peace and belts a few out herself. The only rule is that there are no rules.
You’ll want to have your cell phone handy because for once, the performers want you to use them during the show. The singers perform in categories like love songs, Beatles tunes, sing-alongs and ladies of the ‘60s, and the audience votes after each category through an app on the phone. You’re probably up out of your seat and dancing, so you may have to sit down to cast your ballot. The singers even do a switch, where Jersey busts some soul moves and the Motones sing falsetto. The guys are shameless in shilling for votes, including the possible wearing of tutus.
The great thing is that the only winner is the audience, who gets to enjoy the fun, great music and sing-alongs.
Among the songs you’ll hear are “Eye of the Tiger,” “Oh, What a Night,” “Hard Day’s Night”, “Help Me Rhonda,” “I Heard it Through the Grapevine,” “Workin’ My Way Back to You,” “Dancin’ in the Streets,” “Just My Imagination” and “You Don’t Own Me.” There’s even a rendition of “O Sole Mio” thrown in.
Broadwayworld.com, reviewing a show in Denver, said that “the performers are all incredibly talented, with voices that will make you melt and moves that will make you blush.” On Stage Colorado noted that “it’s hard to distinguish who has a better time every night - the singers or the audience. Motones vs. Jerseys is a high-energy concert, full of intimately and proficiently delivered hits.”
You’ll be glad you got a seat, but you won’t stay in it. They’ll make you feel like dancin.’
