In a world of manufactured fakery, don't you crave something real, earthy, and cool: Music made by live, sweating humans, singing and playing their collective booty off, while you shake your moneymaker on the dancefloor?

The Vibrations are just the right band for you; dubbed "A Motown Experience," the group is made up of local scene veterans, playing the best of Motown and soul classics. Complete with costumes, visuals, and choreographed dance moves, they play choice cuts by Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, the Jackson 5, and more.

Lead by the powerhouse vocals of Dhorea Duggan (Shag), the supergroup also features Ain Baird (keyboards) and Steve Cleary (bass) from Digitalis, Kevin Phillip (guitar) from White Lightening Blues Band and Seal Hunt, and Brian Rosen (drums) from Brian Rosen and The What Now.

Soaring harmonies, authentic arrangements, and non-stop grooves are guaranteed to get your pulse racing.

Come and get shaken by The Vibrations on Saturday, December 15 at Spirit Bar. Cover is $5 before midnight, $10 after.
