Motown celebrated it's 50th anniversary in 2009 and yet the classic Motown songs from the 1960's and 1970's continue to fill dance floors and delight audiences throughout the UK. The past five years have seen a resurgence of interest in the Motown catalogue as television shows , movies and individual artists line up to pay tribute to the Tamla Motown sound. Live Music Management have a number of live bands who celebrate and create the motown sound and if you are looking for a motown band for hire in the UK then this page is a good place to start.
Live Music Management represent a number of great Motown bands for hire. Many of them have flexible line ups offering smaller numbers of musicians for events with limited space or budgets and able to add percussionists, keyboard players , backing singers and horn players should space and budget allow. All of our Motown bands have experience of playing weddings and corporate events and they are in demand for shows throughout the UK and beyond. Please contact someone from the Live Music Management team to check availability and cost for your particular event.
Solo Motown Tributes
Live Music Management are proud to represent the very best in solo motown tributes. These are acts that use authentic sounding backing tracks to recreate the classic sound of motown. They dress and look the part in their 1960's costume and , of course , they are great soul singers. In the past ten years our solo motown tributes have been in increasing demand for vintage style weddings and events where the look of the act is almost as important as the sound. Many of them are also available with backing musicians to offer a chilled background music set at a drinks reception or with a full band to create a live Motown sound.
Bands That Play A Mix Of Motown With Other Sounds
For a wedding or party you may decide that a whole evening of Motown music could be too much (although with so many classic songs loved by all generations most Motown bands can keep an audiences interest throughout the night.) Live Music Management have some acts that play a mixture of music including a few key motown tracks. We can also offer a recorded DJ music set provided by the band which will contrast the motown music with other music of your choice. Call the Live Music Management office to find out what the best options are if you just want a portion of motown music mixed with other sounds.
