FANS of Motown can delight with the news that one of its biggest and most popular stars is performing at a venue in the south on Tuesday, September 16.

Soul diva Martha Reeves and her band The Vandellas will be setting the stage alight with an all-hits show at the Shanklin Theatre on the Isle of Wight.

Sixties legend Martha, who scored over a dozen hit singles, will be appearing with a nine-piece band for the concert, which will start at 7.30pm.

Martha Reeves and The Vandellas’ discography includes memorable hits Nowhere To Run, Dancing In The Street, Heatwave, Third Finger Left Hand and Jimmy Mac.

After leaving Motown in 1972, Martha continued to expand her musical horizons, establishing herself as a singer-songwriter with few limitations, singing rock, jazz, country, gospel, blues and classical pieces.

Martha continues to perform, both solo and with her Vandellas – sisters Lois (a Motown-era Vandella since 1967) and Delphine (since the mid-1980s).
