Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our passion for the music, our enthusiasm and professionalism in recreating some of the greatest songs ever written. We love the music, we love playing it and we love to see the audience loving it too

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Our group comprises eight musicians who collectively have many years in the business, and have played hundreds of gigs, possibly thousands! The musicians each play in more than one group, and are regularly touring or gigging - but it's Motown we love best

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

The greats - Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, The Supremes, The Temptations - just look on the back of a Best of Motown CD - they're all there!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

We're still looking for the big one - as a recently-formed group we have played many venues in the past - at home and abroad - some as youngsters played at the Royal Albert Hall in the Schools Prom - but that was a long time ago!

Do you have different line-up options?

No - our group is always eight - three singers, keyboards, drums, bass, guitar and saxophone

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.”

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes we are able to move around using radio microphones

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

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

Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote.

Detroit Live are absolutely superb. The set list is jam packed with classic Motown bangers but hearing them done live is like hearing them for the first time. The band are tight, I loved it when the three singers added a few little dance moves - they looked and sounded really polished. Can't wait to see them again.
