R&B | "What's Going On?"  

I don't think I'll ever get tired of hearing Marvin Gaye's music, even if it's performed in tribute. Gaye's tunes, like "I Heard it Through the Grapevine" and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)," are undeniably great. "What's Going On?" pays homage to Gaye's genius by presenting his classic songs live on stage exactly as they were recorded. According to producer Carl Labate, the most difficult part of developing this show was finding singers that could mesh together; four singers are needed to accurately perform Gaye's repertoire. An all-star orchestra directed by Mike Van Allan provides the instrumental backdrop.

"What's Going On? An anthology of Marvin Gaye's music" will be performed Friday, January 23, at Hochstein Performance Hall, 50 North Plymouth Avenue. 7:30 p.m. $25-$30. hochstein.org; rnbclassicslive.com.
