Christopher Street West has lined up three hot shows on the Wells Fargo Main Stage for the 34th Annual Los Angeles Pride Parade and Festival in West Hollywood.

Saturday night we have the Grammy Award-winning legends, The Emotions. For the exciting Sunday night closing we have The Motels, featuring Martha Davis.

The Emotions’ reign as one of music’s most versatile R&B groups spans three decades, from humble gospel beginnings in Chicago to their Grammy award winning successes in the 80’s and 90’s, and most recently their appearance on PBS’ Superstars of 70’s Soul Live”.

The Motels, featuring Martha Davis, the iconic 80’s pop band, was formed in the late 70’s in Berkeley, California. With many hits under their belt and their unique sound, this group is sure to be everlasting and an inspiration for years to come. Watch for their summer tour appearing with The GoGos.
