We have crafted our 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”.
We’ve 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 our namesakes we’ve been happily gigging ever since. Please feel free to find out a little more back story here >
