Soul, Funk & Motown Bands in Essex

Soul, funk and Motown music has inspired more famous bands and musicians than you might realise, and it even has links with a famous Essex success story.

Show More...

The boy band 5ive rose to prominence in the late 1990s, specialising in pop and dance music with huge funk influences. After having sold more than 20 million records worldwide, the band finally split in 2001, although the reformed in 2012. The Essex link comes in the fact that 5ive member Scott Robinson was born in Essex in 1979, and grew up in Pitsea, attending Chalvedon Comprehensive School.

He later left Essex in year 9, when he moved to the Sylvia Young Theatre School. He went on to land acting roles in Casualty, The Bill and Eastenders before auditioning for 5ive, a new boy band. After the success with 5ive, he appeared in Celebrity Scissorhands and Test the Nation, before the band made a comeback in 2012.
