We are PROUD of the fact that everything you hear us playing IS LIVE - we do not use click tracks, programmers or sequencers, "phantom" brass parts or harmonies, we do it on stage AS IT SHOULD BE - LIVE - AS IT WAS WHEN THESE SONGS WERE FIRST HEARD! there are 5 vocal mics on stage - we all sing our little hearts out! - when did you last see a 5 piece band with 5 vocalists??

The Northern Line is a exciting band which has evolved from the groups passion for classic soul, northern soul and Motown music.

Now in our 3rd year together with the original line up, all five members of the band are experienced musicians and singers, who began performing as teenagers and have continued to enjoy being involved in  live music throughout their professional and semi-professional careers. The band are lucky enough to have three members who all take lead vocals, sharing the songs between them, which means they can perform a wide variety of songs to suit all musical tastes, venues and events.

The band members are : Dawn (lead vocals/percussion), John (keyboards/lead/backing vocals), Mel (guitar/vocals/backing vocals), Geoff (bass/backing vocals), Ian (drums/backing vocals)

Between them they have played locally, nationally and internationally, travelling all over the world and throughout the years have played in a wide variety of bands and as solo performers. Venues have included hotels, holiday resorts, military bases both home and abroad, city concert halls and even the Wigan Casino - the most iconic Northern Soul venue.

The Northern Line are professional, versatile and fun. Their set of classic soul, Northern Soul and Motown songs will appeal to a wide audience who enjoy "sweet music - sweet soul music"
