"Thanksgiving trip"
January, 2018 NEW
Chose to do something different for Thanksgiving so drove up to Pigeon Forge for one night stay. Soul of Motown was the highlight of our celebration. Purchased show with dinner online. Everything went nice. Tickets ready on arrival and seated immediately after pro picture taken. Do not recommend the food. Poor quality! Moonshine shots were not full bodied. Mainly about the fancy flavors. Band played mainly sentimental songs was disappointed cos was expecting songs so we could boogie

"Supreme Entertainment!"
October, 2017
We were treated to a Pastors appreciation week and as we passed by, we thought what a novel ideal to have Motown here in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. This was entertainment at it's best. Supreme! We were blown away by the visuals, the attention to detail in the movements, the vocals, the feel and nostalgic atmosphere of a time gone by. They brought back wonderful memories and closed the performance by singing a medley of patriotic tunes that brought the audience to their feet and tears to the eyes and kept both in check as they harmonized to a beautiful conclusion. It doesn't matter your race. Blacks and whites, Jews and Gentiles alike will enjoy this performance. However, being black, You made us proud, living the dream as you said so aptly right there in TN. We will be back!

Tip: Sit back and relax and prepare to be blown away!

"Love the Temptation"
July, 2017
We went to see this show in 2016 and again July 2017. I loved the show last year but was a bit let down this year. We got tickets for the meal and show but, the food wasn't very good. The temptations sang more songs last year than they did this year so that was disappointing. The other girls singers were good but not as entertaining as the temptations. Was disappointed that the show only lasted a little over an hour and that was including them taking about a 15 min intermission.

Tip: Show not as good as before. Don't get tickets for meal as the food was dissapointing.

The show was fantastic. The entertainers were really good. The food on the other hand was terrible. Both of our dinner were cold when we received them. My chicken tenders were over-baked, I could not eat them. I had better pasta from a jar. Not impressed with the meal at ALL.

Didn't really know what to expect other than MoTown music. The Grand Majestic Theater didn't disappoint with the Soul of MoTown. Many of the artists and groups popular during the 60's and 70's had their music showcased in such admirable fashion that you could imagine you were present at a live presentation by the original artist. The music performers put on such a musical and choreographed performance that would make even a seasoned athlete cry "Uncle." My wife and I were both amazed at the effort the performers put into each song. The backup stage work was beautiful and the instrumentalists were all contributors to such an uplifting performance. Don't dare miss it!
