Soul Train at The Met

Soul Train at The Met

Thr Soultrain The Met Bury 14th February 2014

“Keep the faith” they say and that was certainly the case on Friday at The Met when The Soultrain appeared with their rendition of classic Northern Soul and Motown tracks. The 8 piece band from North Manchester had the crowd dancing from the opening number having been warmed up by the DJ playing the Northern Soul classics on vinyl.
 
Looking at the age of the crowd I am sure that they would have been at the Wigan Casino in it’s heyday in the seventies. However the dancing has slowed quite a bit and although a few people tried to spin and leap most people were just moving to the groove.

The four piece brass section added immensely to the sound generated by the band which was formed in Rawtenstall in 2008.After a few false starts the band got together to play a charity concert for a local charity which raised a lot of money. The singer then left the band and a temporary singer was enrolled who is still there today.
 
If you like your Soul deep and your groove tight then this band a very well recommended.
