Soul, Funk & Motown Bands in the West Midlands

The West Midlands is a relatively small, but very diverse county in many ways. But what does this diversity mean for the area?

Show More...

Take Coventry, for example, as one of the main cities and towns in the county. The ethnic diversity is greater than in many areas of the country, although not as much as in neighbouring Birmingham and Wolverhampton. This diversity has led to a fantastic output of music and culture, including such local luminaries as George Eliot and Philip Larkin from the literary world.

In musical terms, the influx of immigration on the 1960s directly influenced the music of bands such as The Specials and The Selecter, who fused traditional British music with that of the West Indies, creating a whole new blend of two-tone ska music which took the country and the charts by storm. This sort of cultural diversity has made the West Midlands what it is today, and shaped its artistic output.

For this very reason, there are a number of superb soul, funk and Motown bands in the West Midlands area, drawing on the cultural history of their ancestors and the county they were brought up in, creating a superb fusion of music which you can experience at your own party or event. Just call 01572 756386 to see what we can do for you.
