About Soul Traders

Full Description: 

The Soul Traders are an eight-piece band playing the songs of some of the greatest artists of the 60s and 70s covering music from The Commitments, Motown, Stax and the 70s funk era as well. The band consists of male and female lead vocalists, keyboards, guitar, bass guitar, drums, trumpet and sax. Between them the band members have played with musicians from The James Brown Band, Marvin Gaye, Billy Preston, Neneh Cherry, The Real Thing etc.

The Soul Traders normally play three 40-minute sets or two one-hour sets, but this can be extended by arrangement. They can provide 60s to 90s background music on CD before, in between breaks and after the performance has finished at no extra charge, and for an additional £250.00 they can also provide a full DJ service. The Soul Traders have a professional PA system and lighting rig to highlight the band. The dress code of the band can be varied to suit the occasion.

A sensational band with a great wow factor, this band is sure to get everyone up and dancing.
