Both these uber talented women had a hit with the song “Total Control,” but only one wrote it. (Hint: It was Martha). Hear it from the source at The Canyon Club & Special Events Center December 14, this year’s final SoCal show for Martha Davis and The Motels, and December 27 at their Farewell to the Red Devil Lounge show in San Francisco, with Special Guest luce!
New band with a lot of buzz, Parlee, will open for Martha Davis and The Motels at The Canyon Club & Special Events Center on December 14. Richard Parlee and company being described as a cross between Mumford and Sons and Jason Mraz, with their own unique sound. Will be a great night of music, the last shows have been sellouts, get tickets HERE.
Did you know that the release of the music video for The Motels’ song, “Only The Lonely”, coincided with the emergence of MTV? Because of her performance in this video, Martha Davis won an award for “Best Performance in a Music Video” at the 1982 American Music Awards!
“It was actually I think Marty’s 30th birthday party, and Marty, the keyboard and saxplayer in The Motels, was rather a name dropper, he loved to let us know the famous people, so I made his birthday party: “It’s a Marty Party. If you bring a celebrity, you don’t have to bring a gift.” And so all these people showed up: Molly Ringwald was there, Don Henley was there, Tom Petty was there. It was hilarious.” – m

Martha Davis & The Motels Forced to Postpone
Upcoming Australian and New Zealand Tour
Los Angeles, CA (September 24, 2013) It is with deep regret that Martha Davis, along with the promoters of the upcoming Australia and New Zealand concert tours of Martha Davis and The Motels, must announce postponement of the tour for reasons beyond our control.
The Motels have just wrapped up a successful tour around the United States at the Pomona Fair Grounds with The Bangles, along with a number of charitable events, and was preparing to kick off their Australian tour in November with great excitement. Renowned for her powerful voice and hits, ‘Only the Lonely’, ‘Suddenly Last Summer’ and a favorite in Australia, ‘Total Control’, Martha Davis has been focused on a strong media campaign in Australia to boost her already favorable ticket sales.
