YOU don’t need to sell your soul to attend a gig at the Black Bull Inn, Kirton, next Saturday.

Sixties soul tribute band Soulsummit will be performing at the London Road venue from 9.15pm and entry is free.

They are a five-piece tribute band who promise to bring the best soul party tunes with great nostalgia for fans of ‘60s soul and a modern influence from artists such as The Blues Brothers, The Commitments and Guy Sebastian.

Lead guitarist Phil has played a variety of styles including reggae, blues, folk, Celtic, pop and musical theatre.

Bassist Pete has played since he left school and is influenced by the early Stax and Motown era artists such as Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn, James Jamerson and Bob Babbitt.

Steve is the second longest serving member of Soul Summit after Pete, and has spent his life outside work involved in music, mostly in choirs, and playing keyboard for five years in a R ‘n’ B and rock band.

Vocalist Martin first sang with a ‘60s soul covers band and has also played with various funk, soul, blues and rock bands.

He is influenced by Otis Redding, Steve Winwood, Sam Moore and Dave Prater.

Clive has been playing drums since he was 11 years old and has been gigging ever since.

He has supported David Bowie, Supertramp, The Clash and went to the same school as Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

His main influences are Ginger Baker and John Bonham, and more recently jazz drummers Art Blakey and Max Roach.

The group guarantee ‘to fill the dance floor and create a great party atmosphere’ providing a ‘big soul sound’.
