We are Motor City Soul

Motor City Soul deliver fiery and funky sets of classic Motown, Atlantic and rare Northern soul, just the way it used to be!

We play some of the greatest tunes ever written! Expect us to recreate Detroit’s golden age of music masterfully, getting you up and dancing in a way that only a full brass backed soul band really can.

We are highly regarded regulars on the London soul scene, holding down a number of residencies across the capital’s most popular nightspots. We have extensive experience catering for corporate functions (including Spotify, and Shazam – who both know their music!), weddings, parties and festivals.

Offering a flexible line up (7-10 piece) to suit your space and budget, we can also provide a searing soul DJ set, and an instrumental jazz quartet for subtle background music before the full evening party.

Check out our highlights
* Professional service and delivery throughout from our amazing vocalists and musicians.
* Songs covering the golden age of soul and beyond. Hits that appeal to every generation and keep the dance floor full.
* State of the art 1300W PA and background lighting.
* Additional live instrumental Jazz Quartet/ Quintet set for subtle background music for earlier in the day (please see booking options).
* Additional full soul DJ service available to finish your night (please see booking options).

If they don’t get you swinging, you ain't got soul...
