Icons of Soul In Concert
“I cannot say enough good things about this performance... Luke had the audience eating out of his hand... nothing but rave reviews.” - Jackie Wiebe
— Presenter (Swift Current)
Featuring the result of recent collaborations with Motown’s legendary Lamont Dozier, writer/producer of more than 30 # 1 classic R&B chart-toppers (“Love Is Like A Heat Wave,” “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” and “You Can’t Hurry Love”) and Rascals founder Felix Cavaliere (“Good Lovin’,” “Groovin’,” and “People Got to Be Free”), Luke McMaster's live show is an event not to be missed.
Icons of Soul marries McMaster’s contemporary songwriting talents with those of these Rock N’ Roll and Songwriters’ Hall of Fame inductees. The live show captures the ultimate, authentic musical experience of a contemporary blue-eyed soulful songwriter in collaboration with the original hit makers.
This performance also includes several “behind the music” clips from the Icons of Soul documentary, featuring McMaster, together with his long-time songwriting/producer partner, Arun Chaturvedi, co-writing and recording Lamont Dozier at the beautiful Inn at Willow Grove in Orange County VA.
“His stunning R&B/soul concert at Creekside Theatre in Lake Country could have been labelled a tribute. It was anything but... McMaster's natural falsetto... perfectly suited to many [of] Motown's greats... ” - J.P. Squire
“New songs blend in perfectly with the charming covers, which in case you missed my point, I am saying that McMaster’s originals have the capacity to stand toe to toe with some memorable classic tracks and you won’t know the difference between the two.”

“Another original, "Until We Try", features the late genius, George Duke, and after the sound of a needle dropping on scratchy vinyl, a drum beat reminiscent of Jr Walker’s "Shotgun" flows into a superb soul flow of horn arrangement, guitars and McMaster’s blue-eyed soul vocals.” - Stu Berketo
