LET the good times roll! East Lancashire’s leading soul review The Soul Convicts are coming to Blackburn tomorrow night for what will be their last public show of the year.

“The show at King George’s Hall will sort of put a full stop on the year for us,” said singer Danny Finn. “After this we will be playing a number of Christmas parties but this will be the final opportunity for most people to see us in 2019.”

With their full brass section, even fuller sound and a setlist comprising some of the finest songs ever written, The Soul Convicts have won new fans wherever they have played,

In previous years the band has had dates supporting Madness at the Lytham Festival, playing the main stage at Darwen Live and even playing to the crowds at the British Grand Prix. But in 2019, the band enjoyed arguably their biggest exposure to date.

“We were invited down to London to play the All Points East Festival in Victoria Park,” said Danny. “The organisers liked us so much that they then asked us to play British Summertime in Hyde Park alongside Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie and Celine Dion - that was an amazing opportunity.

“The only problem was that we had to drive down there and back in a day because we had to get back which meant we couldn’t stop to watch all those amazing artists.”

And the band made up of musicians from across East Lancashire didn’t let the area down.

“Apparently the organisers usually tend to stay backstage and listen to the acts from there,” said Danny. “But when we came on and started playing they said they had to come out front to enjoy the show fully.

“That was really flattering. Especially when you think they deal with such big acts all the time.”

On stage The Soul Convicts are having as much fun as their audience and it’s this love of what they do which Danny believes gives them their unique appeal.

“We are very critical of ourselves hold ourselves to a very high standard,” said Danny. “But we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are not ones to just sit back and rest on our laurels and as a result let the show take a nose dive but we are also just grateful to be playing to be honest.

“We are all very good friends and I think that comes over on stage.

“We all love what we are doing; we love the music we play and we can’t wait to get to King George’s Hall to round off the year. It tends to be the show where our families and our fans all come along and have a great time.
