Motown Mondays Start at Ginny’s

By Marcus Samuelsson | May 21, 2012

Back in the 1930s and 40s, supper clubs started to pop up as ways for people to socialize with likeminded individuals. They were thought of as a destination where you would go to spend the whole evening, from cocktail hour to dinner to enjoying music well into the wee hours of the night. And starting May 21st, Ginny’s Supper Club is doing just that with the introduction of Motown Mondays.

We had a great time with Roberta Flack, and now we’re starting with an impressive roster of music acts from Motown Records to make your Mondays extraordinary. When you think about legendary music and Motown, you think of Marvin Gaye, Berry Gordy, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross-the lists goes on. These are amazing musicians that came out of that era and from this legendary label. It’s the music my parents grew up with and I don’t know any other label that carries this kind of weight. To have artists like Ne-Yo (who will host one night in June) introduce these new talents is exactly what we’re about at Red Rooster-honoring our past while looking towards our future.

For our inaugural event on May 21st, we couldn’t be prouder to be able to introduce artists Kevin Ross, a smooth singer/songwriter, and Stacy Barthe, a soulful singer whose music is intensely personal, two of Motown’s newest sensations who will help create an incredibly intimate and memorable performance.

Make a night of this unique dining experience while you enjoy eats like 5 Spiced Duck and Maitake Mushroom Dumplings from Ginny’s and stay for what is sure to be a night to remember. Show starts at 9:30pm but doors open at 7pm for dinner. Be sure to purchase tickets early ($20 seated admission, $10 standing room at the bar) to guarantee a great spot to take in the night.

To reserve tickets for Motown Monday, please call 212.792.9001 and I’ll see you there.
