Chanhassen Dinner Theatres

Show – 8:00pm

Featuring Ginger Commodore, Jesse Larson (from NBC’s The Voice), Geoff Jones and Ashley Commodore

A great soul ballad is something very special. It becomes a part of your life. It’s music that gets deep inside of you. Which could be why it never really goes out of fashion. From Stax and Motown to Northern Soul and neo-soul, it’s a timeless genre that’s gripped us for decades. 

We’re talking about the classics. Soul(full) classics. Local jazz singer Ginger Commodore is joined by Jesse Larson (NBC’s The Voice), vocalist Geoff Jones (from the Grammy Award-winning Sounds of Blackness) and daughter Ashley Commodore who will bring you those feel-good songs that we hold dear. Songs like Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” “Cruisin’” by Smokey Robinson, “At Last” by Etta James, Minnie Ripperton’s “Lovin’ You,” “People Make the World Go Round,” “People Get Ready,” “Betcha By Golly Wow,” “Sweet Love,” “I’ll Take You There,” “Higher Ground” and more! Hot Buttered Soul will also bring you songs by Stevie Wonder, Betty Wright, Donny Hathaway, Otis Redding and more. Come soothe your soul with songs from the ’60s, ’70s & ’80s. We’re singin’ soul music all night!

Ginger Commodore is a Midwest music scene veteran – she began her performing as a long-time member of the Grammy Award-winning Sounds of Blackness, touring across the United States.  She was last on Chanhassen Dinner Theatres’ Main Stage starring as “Motormouth Maybelle” in 2012’s Hairspray and in the 2020 concert Night of Wonder – The Music of Stevie Wonder.  She has also been seen at the Dakota, Penumbra Theatre, Minnesota Opera Company, Minnesota Pops Orchestra, Mixed Blood Theatre, Children’s Theatre Company, Hey City Theater, Park Square Theater and with the jazz group Moore By Four.
