Motown & Soul Christmas Spectacular

28th November 2015 - Troxy In support of a cause that is close to everyone’s heart, I attended the Motown & Soul Christmas Spectacular late November at the Troxy in Limehouse. Walking into the arena I noticed a very sizeable crowd who were obviously gearing up for a party! The London Soul Choir were in full swing directed by Abi Gilchrist and being much appreciated by the crowd for their talented vocals. Followed by a lively performance by former Drifter, Patrick Alan and his Motown Live Revue with Matthew Allen, Zalon Thompson, Alex Charles and Ade Omotayo. It was refreshing to hear many of the big Motown classics that we all know and love with an excellent band in a live environment. With female vocals from Denise Pearson, Kele LeRoc, Jennifer Phillips and the iconic Jocelyn Brown belting out “Somebody Else’s Guy” it was certainly an evening oozing with talent. Britain’s Got Talent’s ‘Old Men Grooving’ delighted the audience by bustin’ some seriously extravagant moves in their Christmas jumpers… Never mind the dancing that must have been no mean feat under those lights… lol Not quite as dynamic as Diversity but my goodness they are fun to watch. We then moved onto the after party with Fitzroy smashing out the tunes. He certainly kept the audience lively and dancin’ until they all practically collapsed exhausted at 2am. All in all a great night, for organisers Nathan and Gareth who pulled off a real Christmas Cracker for Cancer Research UK. Well done guys!
