Anyone know any Sheffield based Motown bands?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a decent Motown band based in Sheffield and, if so, could you paste in a link to their website so I can have a look?

 

It is for a charity night at a restaurant.

I've heard that Diana Ross and the Supremes have just moved to Newfield Green, if thats any help. :D

 

This reminds me of that thread where someone asked if Lionel Ritchie lived in Grenoside, or something equally as ridiculous!!

Does anyone know of any Motown tribute bands in Sheffield.

 

Thanks

Look in the wedding group, in the entertainment thread. There are quite a few bands in there, one of them may be what you're looking for :)

There's a good club band called Big Business, don't think they have a website though.

Baldwins Omega Restaurant have Motown Nights. You could ring and ask them for the names of the band(s) on 01142553263.

 

We've booked to go to their Motown Night on Sat 29 August. Someone told me the band are not black though :(. Hopefully they will at least sound like the Temps!!

If you're planning a charity night with a Motown Theme, can anyone go? If you manage to organise it, could you let me know when and where please. I might be able to fill a table.

The guy that owns Silvesters in Leopold square has an excellent Motown band, we saw them play at Menzels last year and they were ace!

 

I have also heard of a motown band called Highway Child (http://www.highwaychild.co.uk) but have never heard them play.

 

Defo post the details of the event when you have set a date, we always love a good motown night!

 

Good luck.

Don't get too excited about the Motown Night at Baldwins - went to one last year, band who were there were good but they were only on for a very short time then disco started but played absolute rubbish, not one Motown record.

Oh No!! I've got 15 very excited people in my gang looking forward to this for a good ole bop to Motown. Do you mean the band didn't play Motown? Or the DJ? If it's the DJ, and he doesn't play what we want, he will be mobbed by a lot of loud women. I'll take my CDs just in case! Thanks for the warning.

If you ever listen to the Craig Charles funk & soul show on sat teatime - he's forever having interviews with soul singers from the 60s who moved to the UK and ended up living in some unlikely places!
