About us

The Motown Pirates have been delighting audiences across the UK for almost 12 years.

With top musicians, a phenomenal brass section, probably the best drummer in the world and fronted by professional singer Liz (who’s performed with artists incl. Paul Weller, Pink Floyd, Billy Ocean and Earth Wind & Fire) this band are simply remarkable and have stolen the show at more than a few festivals.

Classic Motown, a dash of Northern-Soul and a pinch of 70’s funky disco all equal an unforgettable experience.

“Best live band we’ve ever hired”   BBC Bristol

“A truly impressive show!”   Billy Ocean

Some short clips of our smallest band in 2016. This has now changed to a 5 piece band to save your costs for pubs and other small venues. (we’re even better live!)

Some shots from some of the festivals we have done – always our favourites 🙂
