Soul music is a popular music genre that originated in the United States in the 1950s and early 1960s. It combined elements of African-American gospel music, rhythm and blues, and often jazz. Soul music became popular for dancing and listening in the United States. Soul also became popular around the world, directly influencing rock music and the music of Africa. This music that arose out of the black experience in America is characterised by catchy rhythms, stressed by handclaps and impromptu body moves. Other characteristics are a call and response between the soloist and the chorus, and an especially tense vocal sound.
Motown is an American record company. It was founded by Berry Gordy, Jr. on January 12, 1959, in Detroit, Michigan, as Tamla Records, and was incorporated as "Motown Record Corporation" on April 14, 1960. The name, a blending of motor and town, is also a nickname for Detroit. Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music as an African American-owned record label which achieved significant crossover success. In the 1960s, Motown came to be known as the Motown Sound, a style of soul music with a distinct pop influence.

Soul Of Motown The Early Years Reviews & Ratings
Service was great, server was funny and friendly. Food good for the price. The show started out good, but spent too much time on patriotic and religious music. Nothing against that, but not what was advised. No Beach Boys or Four Seasons, very little from the 60's.
The food was excellent and we enjoyed the full course meal. Service was excellent. The experience was amazing and the soul of Motown group were so great. The show was an excellent tribute to Motown music. We had a blast. Definitely worth the money!
If you go to Pigeon Forge ,Tennessee and don't get tickets to see Soul of Motown well then you just don't really know what your missing. The Best live Show of Motown music I've seen in a long time. Music period! I will go back when I visit Pigeon Forge again.
Oh my goodness!!! The Hazzard Hoedown was absolutely fabulous!! It's for all ages!! The music,singing,and comedy is great!! I also loved the tribute at the end to our Veterans! You don't want to miss this show if your coming to Pigeon Forge! I'm going back for a second time!!!
The performers were great. The service good. The food on the other hand was buffet style and it was just mash potatoes, corn, and meatballs or chicken tenders.
