The Lack of Commitments Sunday 27th June at Staffs Fest
The Saviours of Soul !
The (Lack of) Commitments, a soul revival band based in Stone, will be headlining on the Main Stage Sunday, finishing off the festival in their inimitable high energy and powerful set.
The LOC have appeared at Staffs Fest previously and have proved to be one of the favourites of the festival goers, with their prefect renditions of some of the soul classics from the film plus selection of classic soul and Motown, the eleven band members including a wicked brass section give all to their performance to delight of the audience
Our aims are noble and yet beautifully selfish much like those of the original film. We are the soul reprobates of the midlands and we wanna pour our musical hearts out to you. We want you to join us in our over-arching quest to bring soul to a troubled world.
We’re a ten/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. We’re living out The Commitments dream through the music of Wilson, Otis, Aretha, Martha, Percy and the soul greats. 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, sweet Motown. Come and support your local hard working, saviours of soul.
The band were formed in late 2016 and since 2017 we’ve been out and about, playing festivals, gig venues, soul functions and parties. If you’ve seen us we’d be so grateful for a few words, especially as the word of the Internet is so powerful these days. Please leave us
Come support us and join the hard working, saviours of soul. We’re very festival friendly, Fogworth, Staffs Fest, Congleton Jazz & Blues, Newcastle J&B and The Edinburgh Fringe. We’re going further… if you’d like a crowd pleasing band who know how to keep people on the dance floor look no further.
