"My favourite North West Soul band, THE NORTHERN SOULTRAIN not only sound fantastic in the big ballrooms, but they really do look the part as well. A very talented group who put together their varied and imaginative set list to please all, and who are now quite rightly getting rave reviews and have developed a lasting connection with soul fans new and old with their powerful performances." Richard Searling, Wigan Casino DJ
