Eleven-piece Motown band Black and Gold will be playing at Thornton Little Theatre, tomorrow.

The Chorley band features live vocals, trumpets, saxophone, guitars, keyboard, bass and drums in order to create an authentic sounding experience.

Playing the hits of artists such as Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Arthur Conley, Wilson Pickett, Spanky Wilson, Tina Turner, Sam & Dave and many more, Black and Gold’s aim is to get as many people up dancing to the timeless music as possible.

Joining them are vocalists Jayne Hales, Rachael Winder and Kevin Connelly, keyboard player John Winder, drummer Chris Haywood and bassist Mark O’Connor.
