Midnight Cats party band members are four of the most happening musicians Manchester has to offer with a good mix of pop, soul and funk. This is an experienced working function band, playing an irrefutably contagious brand of funk, pop and soul across the North West. A diverse array of clients from companies laying on sparkling corporate hosting, to promoters keen to get their venues jumping. They take the music they love to play as an amped up four piece.
Then they give it the acoustic treatment, creating a softer feel perfect for smaller functions, intimate events and background music. When booked as a wedding band Midnight Cats play across the board from Adele to Dusty Springfield, Taio Cruz to Bruno Mars, Jackson 5 to Pulp.
A ridiculously danceable, eclectic repertoire of chart hits, funk staples, soul classics and pop favourites. All with a signature funky twist, exclusively designed for dancing. As an acoustic band, the sets offer a change of pace from the typical gig.
Since the mid-1990s the nu-funk scene centred on the Deep Funk collectors scene. It is producing new material influenced by the sounds of rare funk 45s. Labels include Desco, Soul Fire, Daptone, Timmion, Neapolitan, Bananarama, Kay-Dee and Tramp. These labels often release on 45 rpm records. Although specialising in music for rare funk DJs, there has been some crossover into the mainstream music industry, such as Sharon Jones’ 2005 appearance on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. (Wikipedia).
