FUNK BROTHERS MOTOWN DANCE PARTY
At the Prince Music Theatre - Philly (5/18/03)
Jack Ashford & Dr. Brookenstein
The Motown Dance Party kicked off at 9:30pm with some of the backing musicians
that performed with the Funk Brothers on the set of the movie that honored
them, STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF MOTOWN. The dance party featured R&B tunes
like "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", "Reach Out (I'll Be
There)", "What's Goin' On", "What Becomes of the
Brokenhearted", "Shotgun", "Here Comes the Judge",
"Ooh Baby Baby", "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now" (originally by
McFadden & Whitehead), "Boogie Oogie Oogie" (originally by A Taste
of Honey), "Stop in the Name of Love", "Bernadette" and
Bob Babbitt & Dr. Brookenstein
The highlights were (from what I remember):
1.I was walking
upstairs from the lobby when I heard the funky, funky basswork of Bob Babbitt
and the tamborine vibe of Jack Ashford on "Shotgun"!
2.There was a guest
female lead vocalist on "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted" who
sounded very good! The horn players were also excellent!
3.Alan Slutsky did at least a couple of great lead guitar solos
during the set (I just don't remember which songs)!
