The Band


9-Piece, Ass-kicking, Mother-funkin, Groove Machine!

Touch the Pearl has been around a while now … but is more in demand today than they have ever been. That is because they have the best line-up of musicians and singers ever … and because they all love each other … like one big, happy dysfunctional family … but mainly because of the songs they do … and the shows they put on!

They’re not like other function or cover bands. They find songs that are rarely covered by other groups and then make them their own … soulful, funky … with a deep groove carved right down the middle! They create unique arrangements & mash-ups of classic, familiar soul & dance tunes, which nobody else is doing. Check out the video & audio clips in the media section!

So if you want the entertainment at your event to be different to the usual ‘jukebox’ cover band, memorable for your guests & a special night that will get talked about for years to come … then let them come & touch your pearls!

In the last few years Touch the Pearl has headlined at the Pacha Christmas Ball in the world-famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom; they were also the main live act at the Summer Soiree Dance Festival. They’ve regularly warmed up for comedian Roy (Chubby) Brown – at the Birmingham Hippodrome, Sunderland Empire and Blackpool Grand Theatres; they are regularly booked by Premiership football clubs to provide the entertainment at their Xmas & End-of-Season parties; they’ve played numerous charity balls, golf club events, weddings, private parties and outdoor gigs … they have also been booked by the Hilton Hotel Group to play their Christmas Masquerade Balls and by the Manchester Hoteliers’ Association to play at their prestigious annual Charity Ball in the sumptuous grandeur of the Palace Hotel. They have supported soul legends, Jocelyn Brown and Kenny Thomas, at the O2 Academy in Birmingham and Alexander O’Neil at The Lowther Gardens Theatre in Lytham. In fact, they are regularly booked to play the prestigious Lytham Festival, where they have supported Scouting for Girls, Heaven 17 & Marc Almond!

There are 9 of them … 6 boys, 3 girls!  They also have quality deputy replacements they can call on if ever they need to. They’re based in the northwest but will travel anywhere if the price is right! They’ve got loads of options in terms of Sound, Lighting & Staging – no room is too big, no crowd to crazy! … and they’re fully insured in case anyone gets injured by their funking big monster bass boom! (…only kidding!)

They can provide background music & live saxophone play-ins … or arrange any other options to fill your night with beautiful music. Call for a chat to discuss what you want & they will make your wish come true!!
