Do you love songs like "Heat Wave," "Ain’t Too Proud to Beg," "Baby Love," "My Girl," and "Ain’t no Mountain High Enough?" Do you love artists like Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, The Supremes, and The Four Tops? Then, you are going to love this group of talented vocalists and musicians. "That Motown Band" has been entertaining Motown fans for years! Joining "That Motown Band" is Garfield Fleming, a soul singing vocalist of legendary status having been a member of The Delfonics for 25 years with William Hart. Garfield’s obvious resemblance to David Ruffin makes people look twice, but when he sings fans get lost in time! He sounds just like Bobby Womack and David Ruffin, and can also perform the songs of many legendary artists. In 1981, Garfield released a single “Please Don’t Send Me Away” which is still played all over the world. He gained much of his fame as a solo artist with that song and was received very well in many countries all over the world. Musical Director Johnny Gale is a Grammy-nominated producer, composer, arranger, vocalist, and guitarist extraordinaire. Gale is also a renowned expert in the authentic stylings of classic soul, doo wop, R&B, blues, and rock. Gale has performed and recorded with Cyndi Lauper, Dion, Ronnie Spector, Darlene Love, Phoebe Snow, Aaron Carter, M2M, Louden Wainwright III, Jules Shear, Joan Osborne, The Soul Survivors, Hank Ballard, the Dells, The Spaniels, and literally hundreds of legendary doo wop groups. Gale was a recent recipient of the East Coast Music Hall of Fame Legend Musician Award.
