"Stop, In the Name of Love!" You've got "Nowhere to Run," except the Genesee Theatre where you can do the "Twist," "The Pony" and "The Fly" with Chubby Checker, Mary Wilson of the Supremes and Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. All three classic acts will share the stage for one night in Waukegan, bringing back memories of 50+ years of music. Checker is the only artist ever to have five albums in the Top 12 all at once and scored over 20 Top 40 hits in the '60s. Wilson, Diana Ross and Florence Ballard founded the Supremes -- one of the most successful female singing groups in music history - and Wilson continues to perform as a solo act at stages around the world, including the White House. Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Martha Reeves and the Vandellas released their first big solo chart hit, "Come and Get These Memories," in 1963 and haven't slowed down since. Martha is a live wire who dances and struts with incredible energy and was dubbed the "Queen of Motown," working with everyone from Marvin Gaye to James Brown to Bruce Springsteen.
