Noel and Maria Present: Motown Reimagined
27 #1 hits, over 60 top 10 hits – Motown had so many hits that one could put together five separate shows of their music and still have plenty of songs left over. The exemplary songwriting of Smokey Robinson, Holland/Dozier/Holland, as well as Berry Gordy himself, along with the interpretation by such legends as Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Diana Ross and the Supremes and many more has left us with a repertoire that is prime for reinterpretation. Join Noel and Maria for Motown Reimagined as they reinterpret the music that defined the 60’s, the Motown Sound on Friday, September 2 and Saturday, September 3 at 7pm and 9:15pm!
Featured Artist of the Week: Noel & Maria
Maria Howell and Noel Freidline define chemistry. Musically they breath as one, communicating almost telepathically as they explore and re-interpret some of the best music of the last 80 years. Always approaching the music from “the left,” Noel and Maria have made a name for themselves as they offer listeners something they have heard, but that they have never heard before. Combine this fresh musical approach with a rapport and witty banter that harkens back to the days of the Rat Pack, and you have Noel and Maria in their element: on stage, thrilling an audience at every turn.

Lorber rapidly expanded his reach to a national and international audience via a combination of complex harmonies, unconventional time signatures and compelling rhythms.
