Last night we went to a Motown/R&B show, with a tight 8-piece band and a couple of really good vocalists. I think most of the musicians are local, but the singers and their guitarist are from Detroit. They played a couple hours of Temptations, Smoky, Four Tops, Marvin and Tammy, Supremes, and a really nice tribute to the late Aretha.
What really made this show stand out was the venue: Blue Frog Studio, a recording studio with around 60-80 (hard to count them with people dancing between the seats) folding chairs set up in front of the musicians. The sound quality was amazing, maybe the best I've ever heard in a live show of any kind, really crisp and clear, plus everybody's really close to the band. We're going to go back next month for a Steely Dan tribute, if we can still get tickets.
