Its the sound of three, four and five piece groups making music you just can’t sit still to – you just need to get up and dance, it makes you feel good and forget your troubles. Even some of the great 70s disco hits have that motown feel and sound, with the addition of Soul and Northern Soul we hope we can bring back that sound.
Let Soul In Motion bring some great memories back to you, the line up father and son Ricky and Azzi front the show both with strong vocals Ricky With his deep rich tones and Azzi with the strong high range together with Andy and Luke bringing the strong harmonies, and also new member Cath Jones a young lady with loads of experience from theatre and cabaret bringing in an extra strong lead vocal with some of the great female songs from Motown, especially those great 70s hits.

As if that wasn’t enough, Keith David, bringing a night of laughter and song, bursting with Welsh spirit.
A very experienced entertainer of many years standing. In years gone by he formed the Comedy Showband called Keith David and the Winterleaf. More recently Keith has injected more comedy into his act, establishing himself as a superb vocal entertainer.
