Motown and soul legends Martha Reeves & The Vandellas have announced additional dates outside of their extensive U.S. tour this summer, including two back-to-back showcases at The Blues Kitchen in Brixton, London.
With widely renowned hit singles including the likes of 60s soul-ballad ‘Heat Wave’, as well as ‘Dancing in the Street’ and ‘Nowhere to Run’, this prominent vocal group established themselves - alongside other iconic acts of the genre such as The Supremes - as defining the distinct and timeless sound of Motown as today, tracks from these acts are still hailed as some of the truest examples of the era-defining style.
Originally formed under the name of The Del-Phis in 1960, the trio’s commercial exposure to the recording industry came about as a result of Reeves landing a secretarial position at the offices of Motown Records. Following a string of sessions as backing singers for Marvin Gaye - including the incredible 1962 record ‘Stubborn Kind of Fellow’ - the girls were later renamed to Martha Reeves & The Vandellas for the recording of their first record, ‘I’ll have to Let Him Go’.
