Scotty Productions present "Summer in the Sixties"
High octane, turbo, high performance, super-charged Mitch Ryder didn't need to hail from the Motor City for those adjectives to be tossed his way, but it was certainly appropriate that he and the Detroit Wheels called Motown home. Ryder hit in late 1965 with "Jenny Take A Ride", followed by "C.C. Rider" welded to "Jenny, Jenny" and "Little Latin Lupe Lu". Late in 1966, the "Devil With A Blue Dress On" and "Good Golly Miss Molly" medley exploded over the airwaves and indelibly stamped the Mitch Ryder sound on anyone with an earshot. Hearing these tunes again might be nostalgic for some, but the way Mitch Ryder kicks out the rockin' R&B jams is energy-packed and timeless.
Leisa Parnham will deliver her salute to Whitney, Aretha, Tina and Gladys and The Shades of Blue will bring their unique brand of Motown magic to the stage, singing all your favorites and their own "Oh How Happy".
