Put on your dancing shoes for the Average White Band, widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in the history of music with numerous gold selling albums and multi-grammy nominations for the legendary Atlantic Records. They are perhaps best known for their timeless instrumental mega-hit “Pick up the Pieces” and a number of cuts, “Cut the Cake”, “School Boy Crush”, “Walk on By”, “Cloudy”, “Nothing You Can Do”, and many more.
To get things started on our journey to Bring Back The Legends of Soul to America, Al Boyd’s Men of Motown kickoff the show with a variety of Motown tunes we all know and love. Al wrote the lyrics to the hit song “Shakey Ground” first recorded by The Temptations and later by the likes of Etta James, Delbert McClinton, Elton John, Aerosmith and many more. If you love Motown, you’re going to love these Men. Sing all your old favorites right along with them!
