Motown Christmas concert in Boca Raton

There is nothing more fun than a combination of the Motown sound with the great music of Christmas. An audience at Florida International University in Boca Raton got a great shot of seasonal adrenalin when four members of hit groups made it a Christmas concert to remember.

With personnel from The Temptations, The Miracles and The Capitols, the Motown sound was in good hands. As you might expect from a group that was fronted by Smokey Robinson, hits from The Miracles were a prominent feature of the concert. Tears of a Clown, Tracks of my Tears, and You Really Got a Hold on Me were just a few of the songs sang. Of course the Motown effect is not complete without the signature choreography, and these guys delivered that throughout the show.

As they said any Motown song can be a Christmas song, which they demonstrated by changing the lyrics to well-known songs into "new" seasonal favourites. How about Signed Sealed Delivered made into Partridge In a Pear Tree? You had to hear it to believe it. Very inventive.

About half the songs in the concert were Christmas songs, such as Jingle Bell Rock, Here Comes Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman and Jingle Bells. Both Silent Night, and the version of White Christmas made popular by The Drifters, were particular crowd pleasers in this concert.

This was the last of the 2013 regular concert series of old-time music presented by Premier Concert Group.

After a New Years' Eve concert, the next regular concert in the lineup is on Feb. 14, featuring the greatest love songs of all time with the stars who made your favorite hits. The Duprees (“You Belong to Me”), The Dixie Cups (“Chapel of Love”), Emil Stucchio & The Classics (“Till Then”), The Knockouts (“Darling Lorraine”) and, back by popular demand, The Platters’ former lead singer Sonny Turner (“Only You”).
