The Shooting Stars Foundation, a non-profit organization which raises money for people living with HIV/AIDS, will present its annual Motown Meltdown at the Commodore Ballroom on Saturday, May 15th, 2010.
The annual event, which has been a sell-out each year, presents a nine-piece band comprised of some of the most seasoned and veteran session musicians in the country, joined by three back-up vocalists, who collectively have more than 100 years of experience in the music biz. Top that off with a diverse and vast array of musical celebrities, each bringing to their solo tune their own style and talent, and you have a guaranteed stellar evening of entertainment and surprises.
Hosted by Terry David Mulligan, the show will feature such musical luminaries as Andrew Allen, Dustin Bentall, Jaydee Bixby, Jim Byrnes, Joe Chappel, Candus Churchill, Oliver Conway, Dee Daniels, Alita Dupray, Roy Forbes, Babe Gurr, Al Harlow (Prism), Bill Henderson (Chilliwack, pictured right), Riley Inge (Formerly on stage with The Temptations), Linda Kidder, Tom Landa (The Paperboys), Cecile LaRochelle, Jane Mortifee, James Rogers, Shutterfly, The Sojourners, Kendra Sprinkling, Sibel Thrasher, David Wills (Stonebolt), Garfield Wilson, AJ Woodworth, and more!
