Martha Reeves & The Vandellas will return to Liverpool this October


MOTOWN legends Martha Reeves & The Vandellas will return to Liverpool next month.

Soul sensation Martha recently appeared on Celebrity Masterchef and has now revealed she will perform live with her seven-piece band at Hangar 34 on October 24.

Expect hit tracks such as Nowhere to Run, Jimmy Mack, Dancing in the Street and Heat Wave.

Based in the heart of Liverpool's Baltic Triangle, Hangar 34 is one of the hottest new venues to pop up in the city in the last five years.

Born in 1941 in Alabama, Martha Reeves shot to fame in the 60s when she joined a group then known as The Del-Phis.

Throughout the sixties she worked several jobs in the day then performed at night, singing jazz and blues at nightclubs in Detroit.

She was spotted one night by an A&R director at Motown who invited her to audition but she ended up working with the label.

In 1961 The Del-Phis changed the names to The Vels and in some co-incidence, the 'Queen of Motown' Mary Wells couldn't make it to a recording session so Martha stepped in with her band - it was then when Martha and the Vandellas were born.

The last time Martha Reeves performed in Liverpool was at the famed Eric's in 2018.

Tickets are priced at £28.95 and are available via https://bigcitysoul.com/ or via Skiddle.
