On Friday, September 28th at 8:00PM & 10:30PM, the Inter-Media Art Center in Huntington, Long Island will host a concert with rhythm and blues Motown artist MARTHA REEVES AND THE VANDELLAS.

Like many soul and R&B singers, Martha Reeves’ musical roots were gospel.  Growing up in Detroit, Michigan, Martha sites her mother as her greatest inspiration and teacher.  A graduate of Northeastern High School, she studied voice under the direction of Abraham Silver who also coached Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson of the Supremes and Bobby Rogers of the Miracles.

After hearing Martha sing, William Stevenson, A&R Director of “Hitsville, USA”, approached her and suggested she come to work for him.  While she worked as a secretary in the A&R department, she recorded several releases on the “Check-Mate” label with the “Del-phi’s” (soon to be the Vandellas).  Berry Gordy, after being asked his opinion of a demo record Martha had sung for William Stevenson, became interested in her talents.  The group’s name changed to Martha Reeves and the Vandellas.  Hits of theirs include: Come and Get These Memories, Heatwave, Dancing in the Street, and Jimmy Mack.

The love movement, the flower children of the Sixties, the dance craze generation and all music lovers in the USA and aboard accredit Martha Reeves and the Vandellas as a great influence on musical history.
