We play classic Soul / Motown and Funk with a modern twist. You can sample our playlist here using the Jukebox. We have a well honed set that keeps everyone dancing all night and interacts with the audience. Our music is unique as it appeals to all age groups and so will make an all inclusive atmosphere for any party.
We usually play for approximately 2 x 55 minute sets
We start with a basic seven piece band. Any smaller and you lose the unique sound of the Stax/Motown sound. This consists of Vocals, Two brass, Keyboards, Drums, Guitar, and Bass. We can supply extra musicians for a fuller sound and a female vocalist. When we provide a quote we will tell you how much the different sizes of band cost so you can choose a line-up according to your requirements and budget.
We can play CD/ Ipod over the PA to get the atmosphere going before we start. Then to keep the energy going between sets. . If you prefer you can provide your own CD’s/ipod playlist.
Yes, this is something we do regularly. Please email us with your requirements. You may prefer to have a smaller combo earlier in the day (i.e. a duo or jazz quartet) and have the rest of the band arrive in the evening.
We are adept at fitting into unusual spaces! 5m x 4m for the full 7-piece band is a good size. A stage isn’t necessary although the drummer does require a flat hard surface. If your marquee company are to provide a stage it is worth just checking that the stage isn’t too high and therefore the band member’s heads disappear into the drapes. Yes this has happened more than once!
We need two double sockets on either side of the stage/band area. The more sockets the better. We require at least two 13 amp sockets fully rated.

We require a hot meal when we arrive at the venue and soft drinks, somewhere to change, warm up and store instrument cases.
Experience has shown that unless you are going to go on until very late a DJ isn’t necessary although we could supply one for an extra charge.
