A Tribute to Aretha Franklin

Born in Memphis in 1942, Aretha Louise Franklin was the daughter of a Baptist minister & her mother was an accomplished piano player and vocalist. Her family relocated to Detroit when young Aretha was 5 and she began singing hymns on the gospel circuit, which is how the legend began. Early on, Dinah Washington called Aretha ‘the next one’.

Soundtracks Of A Generation is proud & honored to feature possibly the clearest stylist of the Aretha Franklin genre, LaShera Moore, in their ‘Soul Bliss’ revue. Directed musically by veteran guitarist Chris Forte, the tight R&B-based outfit behind LaShera performs all the classic, timeless tunes in their fast-paced set.

To be transported back to the Motown studios—Hitsville U.S.A.–on West Grand Boulevard in Detroit, come and see this show!

Thank you for a great night of entertainment for the whole family!!! Frank L.W.

The Core is the nucleus of Soundtracks of a Generation, just like Booker T & The MG’s were to the Stax record label. The central figures who churn and grind out the rhythm and melody for every song. Their natural abilities and grasp of a wide range of musical genres not to mention their professionalism, are the fundamental reasons other players rely on them to elevate each and every performance.

Occasionally The Core of the band, made up of Keyboardist Jay Martini, Drummer Sal Canzone, Bassist Rick Demski and Guitar virtuoso Dennis Costis, cut loose from the music of our shows and dig into their vast collective knowledge of rock n’ soul, funk & jazz. Call it their moment to exercise individual musical influences, or call it a Jam. To hear them down to the basics, is an intimate look at the heart and soul of the Soundtracks of a Generation experience.

“Dang! That is one great show!”
