One of our favorite bands here in Nashville is the old school Motown act Rachel Rogers and the Real Good Feel Goods. Channeling the iconic sound of Detroit in the 1960s, they bring both heart and soul to the dance floor. The smoky sounds of Roger’s voice backed by a seven piece band adds up to one rocking reception.
Rachel Rogers and the RGFGs have been together for three years, since their days at Belmont University in Nashville. The group includes two backup vocalists, and boast a mix of originals soul songs and classic covers in their repertoire. From The Temptations to The Chiffons to Beyonce or Ray LaMontagne, Rogers understands the importance of versatility and keeping a crowd on their feet. But have no fear: any song they play will have a Motown spin – even the Patti Page classic, “Tennessee Waltz.”
But their absolute favorite song to play? Well, that’s easy. “Can’t Hurry Love” by The Supremes: “The second Joe starts strumming the intro, every woman within 200 ft grabs another woman and heads to the dance floor, losing all their inhibitions and singing along to every word,” says Rogers.
