The Commitments - SOUL

< Return to listing

A dynamic and exciting soul band which includes Nigel King performing as ‘Deco’ a powerful front male singer who blasts out great hit after hit ‘Mustang Sally’ ‘Take Me to the River’ ‘The Dark End of the Street’ ‘and Mr. Pitiful’ to name but a few.

The band also comprises of 3 highly talented and very accomplished female vocalists led by the fabulous Claire Barker who was originally classically trained as a teenager before moving from opera to rock, to pop and now soul. The girls perform hits such as ‘Chain of Fools’ ‘Destination Anywhere’ ‘Do Right Woman Do Right Man’ and many others that will keep you well and truly fixated.

The band are extremely ‘tight’ and in their first set they are all dedicated to recreating the movie hits from Roddy Doyle’s famous 1991 comedy-drama film adaptation of The Commitments.

The film plots the story of a bunch of working class Dubliners who form a soul band and in the movie Jimmy Rabbitte aspires to manage the ‘World's Greatest Band, with only one kind of music in mind SOUL. Disgusted with the poor quality of other bands in Ireland, he assembles a soul band in the tradition of Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, and Wilson Pickett, ‘The Commitments’ are then born.

In their second set ‘The Commitments Soul Band’ gives you classic Soul and Motown hits to keep you on the dance floor ‘Soul Man’ ‘Think’ ‘Heat wave’ ‘Dancing In The Street’ is only a small selection of the great songs you can see and hear performed ‘live’ by one of the UK’s most dedicated and established soul bands.

The Commitments Soul Band - based in Norfolk traveling the UK & Europe. The style of music makes them ideal for any size venue or occasion, with the classic sounds of the Tamla Motown / Stax era, appealing to all ages. They come complete with their own P.A. and lighting show. The band is generally in constant demand, the electric atmosphere of this fast moving and energetic show is not to be missed.
