The “King of Motown” is coming to the heart of the Willamette Valley! Smokey Robinson is taking the stage at Spirit Mountain Casino this January, and we can’t wait for a night packed with more than six decades of our favorite hits. Have you bought your tickets yet?
Robinson wears many hats in the music industry: He’s a singer, a songwriter, and a producer in equal measure. His music defines the Motown movement, and his accomplishments speak for themselves. During the course of his explosive career, Robinson:
- Formed the Miracles, an R&B band regarded as one of the most influential music groups of the twentieth century
- Wrote 40,000 original songs, 37 of which are Top 40 Hits
- Served as vice president of Motown Records, where he wrote and produced for headline artists including the Temptations and Marvin Gaye
- Is a Songwriter's Hall of Fame and Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a Kennedy Center honoree, and has received a Grammy Living Legend Award and NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award
The night will be one of music and celebration: Just last week, Robinson was awarded the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, where he joins the ranks of Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder for work that “significant and uplifting influence on the world of music and on our society as a whole.”
Everyone can use a little feel-good magic in their lives. With Smokey Robinson on the stage crooning “ "You Really Got a Hold on Me," “Just to See Her,” “Being with You,” and other beloved favorites, you know you’re in for a great evening.
