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”.

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!
