Bomb Squad bringing ‘Motown’ to Wheatley
The spirit of Motown lives on in performances by The Bomb Squad.
Appearing at the Two Creeks Concert Series July 15, the group features four musicians and two vocalists performing the music that shook up the recording industry in the 1960s and ’70s. The hits just keep on coming as they perform songs from the likes of Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye.
But the group isn’t confined to one genre or time. Their playlist reads like a who’s who of musicians — everyone from Lady Gaga to Bob Seger to Bryan Adams to Joe Cocker.
Based in Windsor-Detroit, The Bomb Squad has performed in a variety of venues, from formal settings to casinos to festivals.

The Two Creeks concerts, held Sundays at 6:30 p.m. on the Weil Stage in the natural amphitheatre at the conservation area just north of Wheatley on Kent Road 1, continue throughout the summer.
Admission is free, but the hat is passed to defray the expense of bringing in performers and to continue the volunteer work necessary to maintain the site. Refreshments are available from Wheatley Scouting.
Bring lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy the atmosphere. In case of inclement weather, the concerts are held under the pavilion. You can also bring used household batteries for recycling.
