Motown Vibrations

The Motown Vibrations are a sensational party band that provides fantastic dancing music for any wedding reception, corporate event or party. Fronted by female and male vocals, this 8- to 18-piece band features packs a huge punch – and unlike many other bands, they never use click tracks or backing tracks. Every note you hear is completely live, giving the band’s performance unrivalled spontaneity.

The Motown Vibrations carefully chosen setlist draws on music from the 1960s up to the present day. They perform Motown classics from Aretha Franklin, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, funk and soul hits from the likes of Stevie Wonder and The Jackson 5, disco standards from CeCe Peniston and Chaka Khan, alongside modern-day hits from Bruno Mars, Adele and Amy Winehouse. Many of the songs are orchestrated as medleys, with seamless transitions between songs to keep your guests dancing.

When booking larger line-ups, you can also add a group of contemporary dancers who perform stunning choreographed routines alongside the band, adding fabulous extra energy to the performance.

The Motown Vibrations regularly perform at corporate events and private functions all over the country, with previous clients including Virgin, Ferrari, BMW, Lindt Chocolate, Triumph, E-On UK and T-Mobile. The band have performed at The Eiffel Tower in Paris and UK venues including Wembley Stadium, Claridge's, the V&A and ExCeL London - and definitely know how to get the party started!

Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe.  He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with.  He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day.  He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with.  All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.
