Great local band the Motor City Vipers return with their annual charity soul night for the eighth year running.
Again it’s at The Brewery Tap in Peterborough on Saturday April 6 raising funds and awareness for the fantastic work done at Thorpe Hall Hospice.
Playing the very best of Motown and Northern Soul classics, The Vipers’ live repertoire is a veritable who’s who of 60s and 70s soulful floor-fillers – from The Temptations, Wilson Pickett, The Four Tops and Dobie Gray, to The Supremes, Smokey Robinson and Otis Redding; and promises to have you dancing your pants off all night long!
In addition to the not-to-be-missed sound of an 8-piece live soul band, the event also includes support from the region’s top soul DJs and Brewery Tap regulars, Julz and Paul D, mixing the tunes into the early hours.
“We’re looking forward to yet another amazing night of soulful shenanigans and hoping it will be another sell-out show for this great cause,” said Vipers frontman, Alec Chapman.
Motor City Vipers were formed in the spring of 2009 and have gained themselves an enviable reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting live soul bands – having played on the same bill as The Blockheads, Neville Staple (The Specials), Kiki Dee, The Commitments, Diane Shaw and Geno Washington, as well as playing at festivals and events up and down the country.
The evening will include a raffle and auction which will help raise awareness and much-needed funds for Sue Ryder Care’s Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough. Tickets are priced at £10 each and available from band members, DJs, or by credit/debit card from the Brewery Tap on 01733 358500.
