You’ve got “nowhere to run and nowhere to hide”and there’s no excuse to not attend Martha Reeve’s 75th birthday party on July 18th.

Reeve’s birthday celebration will be studded with Vandellas-esque attire, Motown soundtrack, and contests for the masses. 

According to the event’s press release, “A number of special invited guests will be in the building along with a raffle, ‘60s themed costume contest, live music and a special prize for the person with the best dance moves."

The lead singer of the Motown girl group Martha Reeves and the Vandellas scored over a dozen hit singles, including "Come and Get These Memories", "Nowhere to Run", "Heat Wave", "Jimmy Mack", and their signature "Dancing In The Street".

Tickets for this entertainment-packed event being held at Bert's Warehouse Theatre  start at $15 and are available on Eventbrite.
