WEST INDIAN AND CARIBBEAN CENTRE

This is a great venue for large events and parties. On this very special occasion Funk’N’Soul, provided a full backing band including tight horn and string section for Detroit’s Northern Soul Stars ‘The Brothers of Soul’. The legends made a one off gig appearance at the centre. 100’s ++ of Northern Soul fans went back in time and partied the night away bringing along their vinyl to be autographed. “The original trio of Bridges (Fred), Knight (Robert and/or Ben) and Eaton (Bobby) became a duo of Bridges and Eaton, through an unexpected combination of bureaucratic bungling and medical necessity on the other side of the pond, yet this adversity could not prevent a performance of legendary proportions. For the first time at a ‘live’ Northern event, with the highly experienced horn led rhythm section ‘Funk’N’Soul Band’ and a local professional singer, Johnny St. John, was recruited to assist with the vocals. Augmented with a four-piece string section. The result was as close to an exact reproduction of the original recordings that has probably ever been heard on these shores, combined with a spine tingling delivery that brought many tears to many eyes”. http://www.soul-source.co.uk/articles/soul-articles/brothers-of-soul-lookback-22-oct-2011-r2285/

THE ESCAPE BAR – OLD COVENTRY FIRE STATION

What a fantastic music venue this was. Many memories for Coventarians with various named acts and performances held here over the years. This was one of the first music venues Funk’N’Soul, performed at 8 years ago! It was quite a sight to watch 100’s faces with jaws dropped realising what a very special bunch of musicians they were hearing. Creating a pleasant change from Coventry’s well known ska and 2tone scene. Kicking off with Average White band’s ‘Pick Up The Pieces’ , Stevie Wonder’s ‘I Wish’ and Earth Wind & Fire’s ‘In The Stone’. Their accurate renditions seperated the hobby players to those who Sleep, Eat and Breathe the business. Great Nights!
