Originally conceived as a 60th birthday gift to her father, Andrea Prestinario created sMOkeyTOWN, which salutes Smokey Robinson’s historic songwriting canon with party hats, pomp, and some serious Motown circumstance. Smokey was the mostplayed artist blasting from the stereo of Andrea’s childhood home, so go with what you know, right? Um, “I’ll Second That Emotion”!

 

Audiences can expect to hear funked-up and folked-down arrangements of hits by The Miracles, including–“The Tracks Of My Tears,” “Tears of a Clown”–as well as songs written for The Temptations (“Get Ready”), Mary Wells (“My Guy”), Michael Jackson (“Who’s Lovin’ You”), and so much more.
