�Incredible, Fabulous & Professional are but a few words to describe the completely Unmissable and Immaculate Motown Express!
Immense stage presence with a set which fully encapsulates all the classic and much loved Motown hits, a true stage spectacular with hair styles, musicianship, dance moves and the superb voices which really take you back to the Motown era with a bang!
Not only is the show phenomenal but as a festival organiser, I can highly recommend working with Kelly and PX Productions which bring you Motown Express.
Working with professionalism, energy and enthusiasm makes running a Music Festival enjoyable and worthwhile...and you couldn�t wish for more when working with these guys!
There is also a huge Thank You to PX Productions for putting on such a fantastic show for Charity!�

�You guys are great! Thoroughly enjoyed the set, got everyone dancing, can�t wait for another party so we have an excuse to book you�

Hi
We just wanted to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding reception. We have had numerous guests telling us how much they enjoyed themselves and complimented us on our choice of evening entertainment.
We will be recommending you to friends and family for future events and will be more than happy to book you again. Many thanks again for all your hard work.
Kind Regards
Alex and Jenna

�Lovely voice, great sound, hope to see you again soon� x

I have seen many acts over the years and this one has to be the best yet. Every song was obviously well rehearsed and sounded as realistic as the original ones, something not every covers group achieves to this standard. The singer also had an excellent relationship with the audience and after no time at all the place was buzzing. I will certainly look forward to seeing them again when I can.
Andy Foster

�I love Motown, you did a great job, all the classics, loved it!�

We�ve hired them on any number of occasions, and they never fail at beating our expectations. They�re punctual, polite and professional! What�s more, their musical ability beggars believe! Their show has dance floors packed the entire night, regardless of venue or location and their gear and musicianship is spot on.
