City Funk Orchestra
If you admire the great songs of Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan and Michael Jackson, as well as Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Sister Sledge, Alexander O’Neal, Stevie Wonder, Maze and more, then you shouldn’t miss City Funk Orchestra. This popular dance band will perform hits from a golden era of music. From pumping dance-floor specialities to the smoothest of romantic soul ballads. It’s going to be a memorable Saturday night out.
Noel McCalla has worked extensively across the British music scene. He describes his genre as “soul, jazz and acoustic songs with a touch of blues, reggae and rock”, so he’s more than qualified to front the dance-til-you-drop City Funk Orchestra.
McCalla’s musical career kicked off with the Black and White Notes, who eventually supported The Shadows. He then joined the legendary pub-rock soul band, Moon and was a guest frontman with highly regarded jazz-rock outfits Morrissey-Mullen and Mezzoforte. He was also a main vocalist with Manfred Mann’s Earth Band for 18 years.
