The Committed are The Saviours of Northern Soul, and have been bringing it home for seven years.  We are a nine-piece show band playing 60’s and 70’s soul,featuring YK’s coolest front man, exquisite female singers, and ahopping horn section. We make a good noise: highly energeticand very danceable music that is the perfect blend ofSoul, Rhythm and Blues, and Motown. We love the music of the great soul performers of the past: Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Dusty Springfield, and Stevie Wonder. We play dozensof great songs from the era including: Mustang Sally, Soul Man, I Feel Good, I Heard It Throughthe Grapevine, Hard to Handle, Son of a Preacher Man, RESPECT, & of course SHOUT!
