The Motown and soul review with Candy and the Sound perform covers of the classic Motown and Soul tracks that everyone knows. With the use of digital backing tracks, the performance faithfully reproduces the sounds of much larger bands and can also perform as a duo without foregoing any of the pitfalls of losing a key instrument. With outstanding vocals from the well known Candy Spangles, the band chooses to dress in era specific clothing and bring state of the art 'vintage' instruments.. With extensive lighting and a fantastic PA system, the band have been playing together for a number of years delighting audiences across the Midlands region. For performances where volume is likely to be an issue, the band are able to provide electronic drums to ensure that sound levels are kept low, and with professional management are flexible in their approach to managing the performance. So if you're looking for an evening of classic Soul and Motown, then look no further.

Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Yes, Candy Spangles, along with Adam and Pete are the only singers you'll get. Unlike many other bands, we don't use dep players

Do you have different line-up options?

We can play as a four piece, a three piece or a duo

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We're professional and we'll always try to accomodate last minute changes. Just make sure you let us know

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes, we can provide music in-between sets for no extra charge, although it would be misleading to say we offered a DJ service. But we're happy to play whatever you want

How much time do you need to set up?

We need about an hour and a half to set up the PA and the lights, and to soundcheck

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Yes, although please be willing to take recommendations from us. Some songs don't translate to live performance well, and we have lots of experience in 'reading' an audience.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes, everything

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We're happy to learn a song for your event, and even happier if there are some volunteers to sing it with us!

'I've seen a lot of live bands but these guys are one to watch out for. I'll definitely be seeing them again as soon as I get the opportunity, but this time I'll come prepared with more comfortable shoes as I don't plan on sitting down!'
