The Band

Do you want to make your event, function or wedding a roaring success ? If so, you need the highly-charged atmosphere of the UK's ultimate Soul and R & B experience .... STRAIGHT EIGHT !

Meet The Band

ormed in 1990, Straight Eight, an exciting Soul and R & B band promise a highly enjoyable show appealing to all. With a distinctive full-blooded horn section, initially the band played classics from the golden era of Soul, including tracks made popular in the 'Blues Brothers' and 'Commitments' movies. More recently, they have extended the repertoire by applying their special treatment to funkier numbers from the seventies to the noughties, along with some gems that you'd forgotten!

They have impressed at many high-profile events - awards evenings, college balls, dinner dances, charity events, parties, weddings, clubs - from Newquay to Newcastle, and are equally at home playing at a Park Lane Hotel or in the garden of your local pub. Prepare to be entertained!
