The Soul Survivors, are the countrys top exponents of classic soul music, taking their inspiration and material from such greats like: Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, The O Jays, The Detroit Spinners, Isley Bro’s & Marvin Gaye, and delivers it with great authenticity and enthusiasm.
Following in those great footsteps, The Soul Survivors with their own infectious stage act, give the best of everything: Three part vocal harmonies, grooving rhythm, a top horn section, and the powerhouse lead vocals of Mel Day, not to mention all the entertainment you can handle.
Soul has played a huge part in each members career, who all boast excellent musical pedigrees, working with such names as Robert Plant, Alvin Stardust, Jaki Graham, Steve Gibbons, Screaming Lord Sutch & The JALN Band, combining years of experience in all types of venues; from small clubs to the Royal Albert Hall.
They have appeared with: The Temptations, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, The Three Degrees, The Drifters, Johnny Bristol, Marv Johnson, Geno Washington, Edwin Starr, Freada Payne, Eddie Holman, Jimmy James, Gary U.S. Bonds & Sister Sledge - to name but a few! The Soul Survivors have also under taken a national ten week theatre tour in Nick Pemberton’s musical soul thriller Hold Back The Night, to which they received rave reviews. They have enjoyed sell out weeks at Ronnie Scott’s, and have worked for Lenny Henry on several occasions, even choosing them more recently for his 40th birthday bash.
Over the last twelve months the band have been back in theatre, touring nationally again in the highly acclaimed Classic Soul Show while still appearing with the lady of soul herself Jaki Graham.
This band is from the same stable as the stunning New Amen Corner show.
