Sound of the Commitments were absolutely fabulous - Book them – and enjoy….

5 stars - (The Commitments) Sound of the Commitments are Highly Recommended
booked Sound Of The Commitments for their event at The Verzon Country House Hotel in Herefordshire

“Sound of the Commitments were absolutely fabulous. Totally professional, and at the same time, really great fun and relaxed. It was a lovely warm evening and we started with most of our guests outside enjoying the wonderful views and cocktails. However, by the second and third song we had a full dance floor! Even with those people who have never been seen dancing before!!! I would recommend the band to anyone. I hadn't organised a band before so wasn't sure what I needed to do. However, Nigel and the band were totally sufficient and needed very little support – which was great for me as I had lots of other things I needed to focus on! Book them – and enjoy….”

Thanks to you and the team for a simply fantastic evening.

booked Sound Of The Commitments for their event

“Thanks to you and the team for a simply fantastic evening on Saturday for Claire's birthday. Fair to say our guests were blown away with the performance, and there's many a sore foot in Maldon this morning from the relentless dancing. Everyone got it, and got into it. Of course what they did'nt see was the hard work, commitment and professionalism you personally (and James) put in behind the scenes; setting up the night before, squeezing into our odd venue, tailoring the set list, accomodating Claire's iPod. To our guests it all looked so effortless! I can honestly say The Sound of Commitments delivered exactly what Claire wanted for her big day.”

WOW! WOW! WOW! What a performance!

booked Sound Of The Commitments for their event

“My boyfriend and I saw you at Dolan's Warehouse in Limerick - We drove down from Dublin (dropping off our two-year-old with grandparents in tipperary on the way!) and I can say that it was definitely worth the trip. On the journey back up we decided we were glad we went to see you guys and not the Committments in the O2 - you gave a great show full of energy, given that it was the day after St. Patrick's day and everybody else was probably dying with a hangover! Thanks so much!”

Full Biography


Sound of the Commitments are probably THE most authentic tribute to The Commitments as they have truly emulated the original sound from the motion picture soundtracks 1 and 2. The lead singer LOOKS and SOUNDS like Andrew Strong back in the day and the rest of the band have the same drive and passion which make Sound of the Commitments such a popular event band.

The Commitments was released in 1991 and made instant stars of the cast who were all unknowns at the time. The film depicts the rise and subsequent fall of a group of 10 mainly young people from an impoverished area of Dublin. It is no mean feat to find and keep 10 musicians in a band and when you do it is almost destined to be something special.

As well as all the classic Commitments numbers Sound of the Commitments also play many other Tamla Motown songs by request which will make your event swing such as “Rescue Me” and “Son Of A Preacher Man” and even The Blues Brothers’ “Soul Man” and “Sweet Home Chicago”.

The band has a full 10 piece line up and boasts some of the best musicians from the region. They do not go out as a smaller band as they feel this would greatly impact the authenticity of the sound and feel of the band.

If you want THE most realistic and authentic Commitments Tribute Band then look no further than Sound of the Commitments. None of them are in this business for the money. They do it for the love of the music and the appreciation on people's faces who see them.
