He’s well-known as the beautiful voice on the internationally famous version of the classic Tempts version of “Silent Night,” and was on the Temptations Reunion Tour and Album.

Glenn Leonard Presents Hitsville Live

Remember The Temptations, The Supremes, The Marvelettes & Smokey Robinson? Those are just some of the artists showcased live on stage — by an all-star cast of musicians and vocalists (9 to 12 pieces depending on your requested configuration) – all being led by former Motown recording artist, and former lead singer of The Temptations from 1975-83, Mr. Glenn Leonard.

Mr. Leonard recorded 10 albums with the Temptations, and now he’s presenting to you 90 star-studded minutes of Motown hits — making this the only Motown Revue show in the world that features an actual Motown recording artist!

Take a journey back in time with us to simpler times, through an evolution of music that was created by Motown, and at the same time represented the evolution of the United States. A new sound was created in 1960, and Motown became the most successful record company in existence. Along with the live action hits presented on stage, we’ll take a video journey back to those days… so sit back and enjoy the show, relive all the memories on video screens along with our narrator — and see and hear all the action live on stage!

ADBACADABRA – the ultimate ABBA tribute

ADBACADABRA promises to continue the momentum by performing 20 of ABBA’s greatest hits in full ABBA fashion and flair. You won’t be able to sit still in your seats as songs like S.O.S., Super Trooper and Dancing Queen are re-created with such precision you’ll swear you were listening to the originals themselves!

Beatlemaniacs

There are dozens of part-time Beatle cover bands in an over-saturated cover scene. Many claim to be “The Best Beatles Tribute band” or “The Number One Beatles Tribute Band.” Any cover band can recite Beatles songs, so it is fair to ask: What separates The Beatlemaniacs from the rest?

The key is energy and repetition. The Beatlemaniacs have been touring worldwide in concert halls, small venues, casinos, theatres and cruise ships for over 13 yrs. The Beatles toured for roughly five years; their shows only ran 20-30 minutes, so The Beatlemaniacs have performed these songs more than The Beatles themselves–and it reflects in their live performances. The Beatlemaniacs do not tire or skip any details in producing a show with no liberties in reproducing the look and sound of the ‘Fab Four.’ Musically, the fine details come down to the talent of the individual members and chemistry within the group. Energetic and youthful, The Beatlemaniacs polish the sounds of the original Beatles recordings into a performance that delivers the genuine energy of a real live Beatles experience. Most recently, Mark Staycer of  The Beatlemaniacs starred in the John Lennon movie “Let Him Be,” which has been featured at numerous film festivals around the world.
