Swing, Sweet Soul & Motown

Swing, Sweet Soul & Motown is a must see show starring Colin Roy. The show has been created with a fine blend of Swing, Motown classics and a generous sprinkle of Soul hits all mixed into a musical melting pot to create a show stopping musical extravaganza.

Male groups like The Temptations, The Four Tops and The Ojays dominated the charts in the 70’s & 80’s and paved the way for the boy bands of today with music that has spanned decades. The era produced sensational girl groups such as The Marvelettes, The Vandellas and The Supremes. Barry White, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Lionel Richie are just a few of the icons who produced hit after hit. The Swing, Sweet Soul & Motown show captures all this and more! Sing-along classics such as My Girl, Sugar Pie Honey Bunch, Higher & Higher, Baby Love, Let’s Stay Together, Mustang Sally, Heard It Through The Grapevine will have you Dancing In Your Seats, plus of course Swing classics from Frank Sinatra, The Rat Pack and Nat King Cole.
