Memorial Day Weekend (May 23 – 26) @ Miller Outdoor Theatre, 8:15 pm
More than 40,000 Houstonians are expected to turnout for the 18th annual Dancin’ in the Street…Motown & More Revue, a Memorial Day Weekend tradition at Miller Outdoor Theatre. This year’s soul music spectacular pays homage to musical legends Chaka Khan, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, the Tempting Temptations and many, many more. The production features some of Houston’s most dynamic entertainers and the 23-piece BACEMENT Soul Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Jimmie Walker.
Dancin’ in the Street will also feature performances by American Idol semi-finalist and hometown rising star, Vincent Powell, performing Lenny Williams’ “Cause I Love You,” and more!
Dancin’ in the Street…Motown & More Revue is jointly produced by BACE Productions and One Delta Plaza Educational Center (ODPEC) and sponsored by the City of Houston, through the Miller Theatre Advisory Board and Houston First Corporation. The Greater Southeast Management District, Dancin’ in the Street’s title corporate sponsor, is joined by long-time event sponsors CenterPoint Energy, Men’s Wearhouse, SHAPE Community Center and other media, community and corporate sponsors.
