Murder in the Key of Motown

Murder in the Key of Motown Dinner and an interactive show in downtown Yazoo City! Put on your platforms. Bring your legwarmers and sing along with Jack Russell and the Terriers as they attempt to perform Top 40 hits in the style of artists from Motown to the totally awesome 80s. JR (Tommy Kobeck) and his band members, Gabe Marvin (Walt Herrington) , Patti Vandell (Wendie Shepard), Delia Ross (Alahna Stewart) and Rhetta James (Becky Martin), are guaranteed to hit a few high notes when they quarrel over who gets the spotlight and who gets the girl. The backup singers get vocal after the audience chooses the winner of the Sing Off. Any hope of harmony is dashed when the show turns into a very limited engagement for one band member.
