About The Latiesha Maria Band

The best modern Soul and R&B band in the East of England, with Latiesha, a truly exceptional vocalist, up front.
Soul & Motown band
Public liability insurance of £2 million

The Latiesha Maria Band consists of Latiesha herself on Lead Vocals, Robin Brisley on Guitar and backing vocals, Lewis McCabe on Percussion, Steve Gibbs on Lead Guitar and backing vocals, David Bailey on Keyboards and Charlie Parker on Bass. The guys are all very experienced musicians, each with decades of entertaining an audience under their belts, while Latiesha is an amazingly talented singer you'll be catching near the start of her career in the music business. It's only a matter of time before her incredible voice comes to the attention of a major record label, but in the meantime you can book her for yourself! Her interpretation of soul classics (think Adele, Alicia Keys, Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin, Etta James etc.) is mesmerising, while she also has the range to deliver fantastic R 'n B and up tempo crowd pleasers, making for a performance you'll be talking about for years. We're based near Peterborough, UK, but for the right fees we'll happily travel anywhere on the planet to entertain you.

As a popular music and food venue in Peterborough, we have called upon the Latiesha Maria Band to support us. A great mix of RnB, Soul and popular classics. Our clients enjoy the music with the gentle banter from the band. I would recommend the band to anyone, as they are 100% reliable, good fun and a quality act. We'll be booking them thru 2023!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

They tell us they love Latiesha's soulful voice, the great music from her backing band and the banter with the audience.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Separately we've performed in every type of venue from cellar bars and scout huts through to large theaters and even stadiums, and for small private parties or weddings, through pubs to huge corporate or sporting events and festivals. We're hugely experienced entertainers.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Latiesha sets the tone for our musical choices, as it is all about showcasing her amazing voice. Major influences are Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Etta James

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

The band were engaged to perform at the opening of a new theatre in Peterborough, which was awesome.

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

Absolutely! The Latiesha Maria Band was formed to showcase the amazing vocal talents of Latiesha Maria.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes we do. Latiesha and Robin can perform as a duo, ideal for more intimate venues, but we also offer up to a 6-piece lineup. We mostly perform as a 4-piece, but whatever the lineup. it's always Latiesha on lead vocals. Latiesha - lead vocals Robin - guitar, backing vocals Steve - lead guitar, backing vocals Lewis - drums Dave - keyboards Charlie - bass

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

If required, at no extra charge we can put on a suitable playlist before/in-between the band sets. Alternatively, if you have a laptop, Ipod, phone etc. with music you'd prefer then we'll use that. We can also do the same after we have finished performing for the night, but as that means we need to be at the venue for longer there will be a small extra fee.

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually we require around an hour to set up all of our equipment and perform a sound check to make sure everything is working as expected. This is based on good, straightforward access to the performance area from nearby parking space(s). We then require around 15-20 minutes to get changed and ready for the performance.

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

We're pretty confident that the set list we have evolved over many years of performing will please just about everyone. We're more than happy to discuss which numbers from our repertoire you'd like us to perform - and any you'd rather we didn't!

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

Yes, all we need from you is a suitable mains electricity supply and a sheltered, level performance area at least 4 metres wide by 2 metres deep - and ideally twice that size!

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We'd be delighted to add a number or two of your choice (for example, a specific song you'd like for your First Dance at your wedding), as long as there is enough time between when you book us and the performance date - we obviously need time to learn and rehearse new songs!
