Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Motown Magic

The space between Christmas and New Years Eve just got sweeter, with Dancing in the Shadows of Motown checking in to the Airlie Beach Hotel for two days of unbelievable music, non-stop dancing, and an all round good time.

Cruise through this break with some of the absolute best hits imaginable, who each faithfully and accurately recreating the beats, vocals, and impact of some of the greatest musicians around, including Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Fontella Bass, The Jackson Five, and Junior Walker, plus so much more.

This nine-piece production leaves no note left behind, headlining across the world, and selling out shows everywhere in between.

Selling out shows across the world, including the massive Sydney Opera House, this is not a show to miss. Airlie is lucky to get a show of this calibre free of charge.

Classy, confident, and poised does not begin to describe the energy and attitude that is Dancing in the Shadows of Motown, who tirelessly endeavour to ensure their performance leaves the audience just wanting more.

Now, who is on the line up?

The likes of Franchesca Appolis, Kimi Tupaea and Annie Ameida are just a handful of the powerhouse vocals that call Motown their tracks.

With them is Matt Roberts, Jason Bruer, Greg Carger, Christopher Soulos, Wesley Harder and Andy Brynes with the instrumental and backing vocals.

All of which create a performance like no other, on a stage that is set to blow Airlie Beach apart.
