Roy G Hemmings & The Dictionary of Soul.

I don’t know if there was anyone dancing in the street outside Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre on Friday night but there was no shortage of people dancing between the seats as well as in the aisles and just about anywhere they could find enough space. Motown fans from far and wide filled the auditorium, proving that the classy sound of a legendary era music lives on.
