Boasting stunning male and/or female vocals and a crowd-pleasing soul, funk and disco playlist, Manhattan are our leading Motown and soul band in the north. Your guests will be singing out loud, stomping their feet and clapping their hands from the first song!

The band's speciality is classic Motown and funk by artists such as Stevie Wonder and James Brown, alongside contemporary soul-infused pop from the likes from Beyonce, Bruno Mars and Calvin Harris.

But the band are versatile enough to cover everything in between, from 80s anthems, 90s house and R&B and even some classic rock if required.

With over 40 years of hands-on performance experience between them, the band have toured heavily and enjoy successful music careers in their own right.

The band is fantastic and they are all highly talented musicians who put their hearts and soul into it. A pleasure to watch and listen to! Nadine, Private Party, Bradford

Whether your event is a wedding, birthday, charity or corporate event, everything can be tailored to meet your tastes and requirements, and their song list is ever-expanding. Requests are welcomed subject to at least 1 month’s notice.
