Whilst the 60's was perhaps the heyday of Soul music, with artists such as James Brown, Otis Redding, Diana Ross & Sam & Dave being introduced to a wider audience by labels such as Tamla Motown & Stax.
Whilst the music & songs of these artists are familiar to most, other more obscure tracks began to be heard in some clubs in the North West of England. This music had its base in the Rhythm & Blues sound of the 50's & could be heard at venues such as Wigan Casino, the Twisted Wheel in Manchester and The Torch in Stoke. This music was to become what is now known as Northern Soul. Its popularity spread, indeed Lincolnshire had its own hotbed of Northern Soul, in Cleethorpes. To this day the memories of this period can be relived & enjoyed by new audiences at venues within the county! (For details check our listings). Perhaps these sounds have influenced other musicians, listen to 'Speadin' Honey' by the 103rd St. Rhythm Band, a track featured on a free CD given with 'Togetherness' magazine, does this instrumental provide inspiration for parts of the Genesis song 'That's All' ?
Mainstream soul, including both Tamla & Commitments style songs are represented in the county too, by bands such as The Soul Solution, Soultime and The Rumble Band. You can E-mail us with your gigs & news directly from this page.
