"Excellent show"
January 2020
Great show! My husband and I attended over Christmas 2018 and when we made plans to to visit the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area for Christmas 2019, the first priority was to see Soul of Motown again! Singers are amazing and my husband and I both in our 60's sang along with several songs. Definitely a must see if you visit the area!

Good food and great show! The guys were wonderful, but Shawn just blew us away with her strong, sultry voice. Her rendition of I Will Always Love You was better than Whitney's. Audience participation was nice also with the Kiss Cam and Dance Cam. I would highly recommend this show.

"Great show! "

We were right up front for this wonderful nostalgia trip back to the days of Berry Gordy and the heyday of Detroit. The singers were excellent, perfect intonation and tight harmonies, plus great costumes. The guys were light-hearted and smiling throughout, even while executing complicated choreography under hot lights. The female singer’s voice is ethereal and her many gowns and sparking jewelry were beautiful. The duet of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” gave me chills, and my eyes were misty during their tribute to Our Maker. The staging, light effects and musicians were perfect. What a memorable show!

we were in pigeon forge for our anniversary. we love to see the soul of motown. the show was great, but the food was awful. the menu on the website is far from what we got. no sauces and the food had no seasoning. we were told to be there by 5:45 so we got there at 5:30 and our waitress told us the buffet would start at 6:00. Well at 6:45 is when they called our row to start and we were row A. the show didn't start until 8:00 and it was suppose to start at 7:00. The speaker told everyone that the ovens were not working right and the cook was having some problems. Who waits till the day of the show to find this out. we were very disappointed in the food. not good at all. we loved the show and will go back, but will not eat the food.

The show was awesome and the singing is excellent! They are excellent performers... the downside is the food... skip the dinner and just get show ticket! The food was cold and not great quality. May have been a little better if hot but it wasnt... choices were also quite limited... not great for picky eaters cause you have no idea what you are gonna get🤣
