GROWN UP BLUES WITH SOUL
There is no doubt about it – Reeves is a great singer. The Rrazz Room has pulled off a real coup to get this talented singer to come to San Francisco. Reeves has matured and so has her voice. And when she sings at the opening tomorrow night at the Rrazz, there is bound to be something for everyone.
No studio wizardly is performed in this exciting evening. What we are going to get is pure Reeves. There is nothing like Martha Live. All in all, this great legend has never sacrificed her art. She’s the real deal – and I hope that she treats us to “God Bless the child” – one of my favorites
Reeves rose to the top of Motown. You may be interested to know that she started out a secretary and managed to get beyond the turmoil at Motown and some pretty vicious attacks by one of Motown’s most volatile Diva’s.
Reeves styling technique is one of the many reasons that she always sounds polished. She sparkles on everything that she sings – from Funky blues to brilliant ballads.
Take my word for it – Martha Reeves will put on a thrilling, moving and emotionally rich evening of song and entertainment. There are winners and losers in the music biz – Martha is a WINNER!
