About
The Lowdown: "Motown is forever," says Gerald Foster, one of just a few Motown tribute bands working in metro Detroit. They're frequent favorites at the MGM Grand Detroit Casino and also heated things up at the recent Motown Winter Blast downtown.
The Lineup: Multi-instrumentalist and bandleader Foster plays live keyboards and triggers via laptop tracks he recorded and mixed to re-create Motown hits. Glenn McFarland is the baritone, Keith Dotson and Bruce Sims tenors.
The Sound: The music is straight-up Motown with an electronic base. Dotson, McFarland and Sims produce three-part harmonies effortlessly and with a lot of love.
You'll hear a healthy sampling of Motown hits and other pop songs. It's the show stopping Temps-n-Tops medley, though, that knocks 'em out every time.
The Moves: While not lifted directly from their originators, the men's dance moves are energetic and evocative of the era. Their matching suits, in vibrant colors (selected by Dotson), and Harris' sparkling coordinated costumes are also reminiscent of the originals. Don't be surprised when audience members get up and start dancing, too.
The Name: There's nothing sinister here; it's simply the first letters of each male vocalist's first name, in catchy order.
Little-Known Fact: Even though they're Motown specialists, all the group members hail from that friendly town to the south, Toledo. Foster now lives in Lansing, while the other three have stayed put. They initially came together at a nightclub Foster once owned in Toledo, as professional musicians who spent their off hours hanging with their colleagues and singing their favorite music for fun. They remain crowd-pleasing favorites in their hometown.

Fastastic! And that barely scratches the surface, they are an extremely talented and professional group. Gerald is wonderful as the contact person, he’s so responsive, and so willing to do anything that’s requested, really a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend KGB as one of the best Motown groups around!!!

KGB was hired for a corporate hospitality event at an upscale restaurant in Detroit, MI. Gerald, who is the manager for the band, was very easy to work with via e-mail and phone. The event was a great success! KGB had matched their outfit colors to our event and truly created a memorable experience that our customers are still talking about! Other patrons of the restaurant were stopping by to meet the band after the event - the ENTIRE venue enjoyed the performance! If you are seeking a talented Motown tribute band that not only sounds great but is interactive with the crowd, KGB is an exceptional choice!

KGB performed for our law firm's 25th anniversary party. We are still receiving compliments about their performance from our guests. They performed as if 500 people were watching when only about 50 actually were. I would recommend them for any type of event. They really made the night special for everyone.

KGB was the perfect cocktail hour entertainment for our black-tie awards dinner. Not only was the group extremely professional and easy to work with, but they were very talented as well. Their energy and voices filled the theater. In addition, their set flowed immediately from song to song so there were no quiet lulls in the performance. I received many compliments on the entertainment. Thank you for making me look good!
