DIANE SHAW’s ULTIMATE Soul & Motown Show Brand New for 2013 The UK’s favourite Soul Diva teams up with her Fantastic Live Band to present the most exciting Live Soul show this year. It's often been said that Diane Shaw was born in the wrong era. If she'd had her break in the 60’s, you wouldn't be reading this now, you would probably already have her albums on your shelf.
She is a performer moulded on a higher calibre of legend not often seen today. Still young enough to shake a tail-feather, yet old enough to have grown up singing and learning from the best. The soul and spirit of the great Divas runs through her.... Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross & the Supremes, the list goes on.. Performers with a true class and distinction, learnt from years of treading the boards, … there was no such thing as overnight fame or reality-TV back in those days. So to the LIVE Show, where there's no pretence, no mimicry, Diane truly knows the music, she grew up with it ringing in her ears. Bringing the classic sounds of a time gone by, freshly delivered to a new audience, and a new generation of soul music lovers, a mixture of young and old craving for something new in today’s manufactured music scene. No fireworks or dancing girls, just a great dynamic band, great sound and lighting, and a unique ability to seamlessly transport the audience back to better times, where seeing a SHOW was a big night out, and a mutual respect for audience and performer was the order of the day. Diane invites the whole room to join in the party, leave their inhibitions at the door, kick off their shoes and go back to a time where music simply lifted the soul. Great memories, past and present....sore feet from dancing, no voice from singing....sounds like the perfect night out to me.....!
One of the top British Soul singers, Diane has spent the last 15 years performing
all over the world supporting artists such as Sister Sledge, The Drifters, George
McCrae, Grammy award winning artist Kirk Whalum, and jazz legend Peter White, and
has this year put together her own ‘Supergroup’ of musicians who also tour with the
likes of Chaka Khan, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Tavares, Kid Creole, Ruby Turner,
Erroll Brown, and the Three Degrees to bring you the UK’s most authentic First Class
journey into the hit songs of Motown, Philadelphia, Atlantic and Chess Records. Classics
from the 60s, 70s and 80s made famous by Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Candi Staton,
Chaka Khan, The Supremes, The Vandellas, and many many more…
