Motor City Family Funk is a nine-piece Motown revue based in Auckland. They are a top-shelf band with an uncompromising policy of sharp suits and sharp tunes, and they are set to raise the roof at Q directly following the performance of Auckland Theatre Company's Jesus Christ Superstar on Friday 12 December.
The band draws material predominantly from the golden days of the Motown record label. Motor City Family Funk set out in 2006 to do justice to these fantastic arrangements as only a band of its size could. The songs of artists such as The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, and occasional non-Motown artists such as Bill Withers and Otis Redding are given reverent renditions, guaranteed to be loved by all ages.
Motor City Family Funk regularly perform at summer festivals such as the Devonport Food & Wine Festival, Auckland Council Music in Parks and the Auckland Seafood Festival.
