Soul, Funk & Motown Bands in the East Midlands

The East Midlands is blessed with a cultural diversity which means that many different forms of music found their way here when they might otherwise have not.

In the most recent UK Census of 2011, the foreign-born population of Leicester stood at 33.6%, which is much higher than the English average of 13.8%. Indeed, the percentage who considered themselves to be ‘white’ was just 50.6%, compared to the English average of 85.5%. This ethnic diversity has led to the music of the region being directly influenced, with soul, funk and Motown being especially popular in many areas of the East Midlands.

With the percentage of residents referring to themselves as ‘black’ being twice the English average, this should come as no surprise. Soul, funk and Motown music is intrinsically linked to black culture and the rise of these styles of music in the late 1960s and 1970s occurred at the same time as immigration began to rise substantially in the UK.

With such a vibrant music scene in the region, it’s very easy to hire a fantastic live band for your party or event. If you call DG Music on 01572 756386, you can take advantage of our free consultation service and find out what we can do to make your party even better.
