The Lack Of Commitments & Exit 21 Soul Club (Motown & Soul on Bank Holiday Sunday)

An eleven piece soul band, playing the best music from the film ‘The Commitments’ plus other soul classics to reignite the dwindling fire in your heart. The Lack Of Commitments are the soul reprobates of the midlands who pour their musical hearts out to you. Join them at the Empire in an over-arching quest to bring soul to a troubled world.

You’ll hear Chain of Fools, Destination Anywhere, Mustang Sally, Hard to Handle, Treat Her Right and the inimitable Try a Little Tenderness as we take you on a rollercoaster of sweet Motown.

If you’d like a crowd pleasing band who know how to keep people on the dance floor - look no further.

Plus DJ Steven Henderson from EXIT 21 SOUL CLUB playing strictly original 7" vinyl soul records.

Over 18's only. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
