(February 20, 2013) –
Due to the impending storm, this program has been rescheduled for Wednesday, May 29.
On Wednesday, March 6 at 7:00 p.m., the Westfield Memorial Library will host Rhonda Denet with the Silver Fox Songs to perform the “Mostly Motown” review. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.
“Mostly Motown” is a review of classic rhythm & blues and soul of the 1960s and 70s. Songstress Rhonda Denet and Silver Fox Songs will celebrate a time when this primarily African-American genre crossed over to mainstream audiences.
Featured songs were made famous by female artists Aretha Franklin, Martha & The Vandellas, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Etta James, Gladys Knight, Dionne Warwick, Dusty Springfield and Roberta Flack, as well as male artists Ray Charles, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Al Greene.
