History: This Motown tribute act plays the hits and looks the part. KGB has performed around town for years; you may have seen then at one of the area casinos or during the annual Winter Blast event in Campus Martius. The name KGB stands for some of the vocalists' first names: Keith Dotson, Glenn McFarland and Bruce Sims. Gerald Foster is the bandleader.
