Masters of Soul have been called the most entertaining history lesson ever performed. This show authentically reproduces the look, choreography, style and sound made famous by a record label that was relatively unknown at the time, but went on to profoundly influence the history of popular music. The performance goes beyond the music to preserve the integrity of the entire Motown experience. For many, Masters of Soul is the ultimate stroll down memory lane as they relive, or discover for the first time, the incredible harmonies and smooth moves made famous by many of the greatest recording acts of all-time, including The Temptations, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Four Tops, Diana Ross & The Supremes, The Jackson Five, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, The Commodores and many more.

For younger generations, the show offers a way to experience a period in our country’s past that produced many of the greatest music acts ever recorded.

The show features a completely live performance with seasoned musicians and world-class performers from The TFC Band.

This group has toured extensively worldwide for more than 30 years, performing at private events, festivals, casinos, corporate events and military bases from coast to coast and overseas, including tours of Europe and Africa. After having toured together for decades, The TFC Band created the Masters of Soul show in 2008 as a way to heighten the experience for their fans and deliver the full package — a stage show which captures the sights, sounds and feel of the Motown era.

Mark your calendars for this walk down history lane with great music of the Motown era.

Our local co-sponsors are Comfort Suites Riverfront Hotel, Concordia Bank & Trust, Co and The Friends of the Delta Music Museum Foundation.

This project is supported also by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council, as administered by the Arts Council of Central Louisiana and the Louisiana Presenters Network.
