A night of “Soul and Motown” should be presented as the energetic party music it was intended to be. The Soul Man does exactly that – this is party music for everyone to enjoy.
The Soul Man’s signature song is “Sweet Soul Music” by Arthur Conley (written and produced by Otis Redding for Atlantic). This is a scene-setter and The Soul Man quickly moves through a series of 60’s Tamla Motown classics before delivering an avalanche of 70’s and 80’s disco stompers. These songs will make you dance and sing – they are an irresistable force.
The programme of songs is specially prepared for each event, whether it’s a wedding, a family party or a night for soul fans – songs from acts such as The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Supremes, Jackie Wilson, Wilson Pickett, Eddie Floyd, Sam Cooke. Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder and so on will be well known to everyone while others from acts such as Bob & Earl, Dobie Gray, Frank Wilson, Jimmy Radcliffe, Chuck Wood, The Showstoppers and Robert Knight will be perfomed at special nights for soul and northern soul fans. Whatever the occasion, The Soul Man takes no prisoners – “Dance! Sing! Do That Thing!”
The 70’s and 80’s disco era is treated with equal attention to detail and can include tracks from great disco, smooth soul and philly acts such as The Detroit Spinners, The Trammps, The Drifters, Tavares, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Luther Vandross, Jimmy James, The Real Thing, Billy Ocean, The O’Jays, Barry White, The Stylistics, The Commodores and Lionel Richie.
With close to 200 songs in his repertoire, most originating from the 1960’s and 1970’s, The Soul Man is probably the most authentic Soul and Motown singer working in the UK today. He knows what songs to use to make your event work and be sure that everyone goes home tired and happy.
