Direct from the hit Hollywood Film "The Commitments", the man who has fronted the touring band for the last ten years, we are proud to present DAVE FINNEGAN'S COMMITMENTS.
The original, head butting bouncer & drummer, from the blockbuster film playing the character of Mickah Wallace...
Dave Finnegan has performed along side such legendary artists as James Brown, Wilson Picket, Edwin Starr, Steve The Colonel‚ Cropper, Dennis Edwards (The Temptations), BB King, Sam Moore, Dan Ackroyd and many, many more. It was Sam Moore who questioned, "how can a little white guy have a soul and a voice that's so black?".
Appearing in countries such as Brazil, USA, Canada, all over Europe, Scandinavia, South Africa, The Middle East, India, Japan, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand - the last guesstimate being that he performed to an excess of a couple of million people!
Now with his NEW SENSATIONALSHOW & his own8 PIECE BAND behind himperforming all the hits from the film & much, much, more!
DAVE FINNEGAN'S COMMITMENTS feature the same commitment to their music, with the instantly recognisable horn section, and that sweet soul rhythm section. On their ongoing journeys they undoubtedly continue where the film left off, still spreading the word of Otis Redding, Wilson Picket and the other apostles of soul, and in doing so enabling us all to experience the essence of SWEET SOUL MUSIC.
THIS IS NOT A TRIBUTE - THIS IS THE REAL THING!
The band will perform either 1x 80 minutes or 2x 45 minutes. The line-up consists of; Dave Finnegan, Singer, Drums, Bass, Keyboard, Guitar, Sax and Trumpet.
