The Shades of Blue are the greatest Motown Party Group around! They have been entertaining audiences for over 50 years! They recorded a #1 hit song back in 1966 called, "Oh How Happy"! They continue to tour all over the world today to sold out theaters and stadiums! If you're looking for the Ultimate Motown, Party and Dance experience for your event then you have found the right group! They can sing great, they can dance great and they look phenomenal!
Have seen this group for several years now and still find them exciting each time they come on stage. Each one of them has a unique talent and stage presence, they are great artists especially Bobby Charles Davis who is extraordinary. Love their sense of humor. In one word "FABULOUS !"
They are versatile and really please their audience. I overheard a gentleman telling his wife on the way out. We pay $200 to go see Katy Perry and she is not nearly as good as these groups for 1/4 the price and they lend sentimentality to the evening--right after the Shades of Blue had done their last song.
One of the best shows all summer!
I hire The Shades probably 4 times a year! They put on an awesome show and the people love them.
The Shades are the best act we had here in the past 5 years! Doo Wop and Motown at its best!
I was thrilled when i called The Shades of Blue and they were available to perform at my Ribs & Sould Festival! Uncanny showmanship and remarkable voices! They entertained us all night with all the Motown hits.
Anytime we put on a Motown production we call The Shades of Blue. Nobody has the choreography and stage presence like these guys! We love them!
