Motown was known as Hitsville U.S.A., and there were few greater hit makers than Marvin Gaye. But Gaye was more than just a Motown icon. He remade soul music in his own image. His singles and albums were sensual, spiritual, tortured, joyful and political, and his musical journey took him from classy R&B and doo wop to catchy and lush pop to visionary funk and disco.
88.1 KDHX is proud to present How Sweet It Is: A Tribute to Marvin Gaye on November 15, 2013 at Off Broadway. A host of St. Louis bands and artists will play the songs of Marvin Gaye, hitting on all aspects of his career, and all proceeds will support KDHX.
