PREPARING PARTS FOR THE UK'S LEADING NORTHERN SOUL BAND

I am currently working on audio transcribing and arranging the horn parts for 'The Signatures, Northern Soul Band'. They are the UK's leading live Northern Soul band, playing gigs up and down the country and playing for major artists such as Bobby Brooks Wilson, Tommy Hunt, Ruby Andrews and Paul Stuart Davies to name but a few. Resident singer for the band Stefan Taylor is also quickly establishing himself as a charismatic front man, so make sure you get to catch them live at a venue near you!
