Introducing The UK Commitments Tribute. The hard working, saviours of soul. An eleven piece soul experience. Our set (some may also say looks) are strongly based on Alan Parker's masterpiece film "The Commitments".
You’ll hear Chain of Fools, Destination Anywhere, Mustang Sally, Hard to Handle, Treat Her Right and the inimitable Try a Little Tenderness as we take you on a rollercoaster of sweet, sweet Motown. Come and support your local hard working, saviours of soul.
They have crafted their set around the best known songs from the film. The iconic songs that give the band its identity, “Try A Little Tenderness”, “In The Midnight Hour”, “Nowhere to Run”, “Too Many Fish in the Sea”, “Destination Anywhere”, “Chain of Fools”, “Show Me”, “Take Me To The River”, “Hard to Handle” and of course “Mustang Sally”.
The band chave also added a carefully selected list of soul belters from the likes of Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Martha Reeves, Tina Turner, Eddie Floyd, Jackie Wilson, Joe Tex, The Marvelettes and James Brown. We’re talking absolute soul bangers such as “Higher and Higher”, “Knock on Wood”, “Think!”, “Soul Man”, “Proud Mary”, “Dancing in the Street”, “Heatwave”.
The band were formed in late 2016 though unlike their namesakes they have been happily gigging ever since.
