About Motown City!

Motown City! is one of the many Soul and Motown acts on our roster and is a firm favourite with our clientele, having earned rave reviews every time they play. Motown City! is an excellent choice for someone who needs a function band or perhaps a band to provide entertainment on their wedding day. The band can appear in numerous configurations to suit your preferences, but the core band is a four-piece act featuring a guitarist, bassist, drummer and male vocalist. However, Motown Live! can be expanded to be a 5, 6, 7 or 8-piece band, including a trumpet player, saxophonist, trombone player and a fantastic female vocalist. 

Motown City! can perform an extensive array of hit songs at your function or wedding, including the work of Jackson 5, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Miracles, Rick James and more. With the many different compositions of the band available to hire, they can produce a setlist that’s genuinely unique every single time they are hired, meaning that you can rest assured that the setlist for your special day won’t be replicated. It’s not only soul and Motown songs that can feature on your setlist either, as Motown Live! can also perform a full range of more standard classics as well.

Price from: £1,500
