About this Act

Chicago Joe & the Soul Divas play Soul and Tamla Motown the way is should be played. Their music appeals to all ages and is sure to have you joining in dancing, singing and having a good time.

The band is fronted by two Soul Divas, both of whom have unique and powerful voices. Add to them the distinctive Soul sound of the horn section set on the tight foundation of the guitar, bass and drums and layer with rich backing vocals, and you have a lush, soulful sound.

Regularly performing at an eclectic range of events, especially when a party atmosphere is required, Chicago Joe & the Soul Divas always give that extra bit of something special. Their extensive, constantly updated repertoire includes songs from classic artists such as Otis Redding, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, The Blues Brothers, Wilson Pickett, Fontella Bass, Amy Winehouse and many more.

Chicago Joe & the Soul Divas differ from some bands because of their formula of putting fun first. That is why you can rely on them to give your guests a truly enjoyable and entertaining experience.
