The New Foundations

A great 7-piece band. One of the few that recaptures that authentic Motown sound.

Now, The New Foundations recapture the classic sound of the original Foundations, playing their greatest hits plus an extensive repertoire of 60s, Soul and Motown classics! The band have enjoyed success on the major circuits in the UK, Germany and Denmark.

The New Foundations was formed around 2008, and had backed the original vocalist of The Foundations, Clem Curtis, at many gigs from their formation. They then went through a few personnel changes which has evolved into the present established line-up. Each member has a proven track record in music, being both highly qualified and experienced in stage, screen and recording. The result is a totally authentic, totally live experience for an audience. All round excellent musical ability, one of the best soul singers in the business, coupled with 5 part backing vocals and harmonies.

The New Foundations regularly play the club circuit in the south of England, holiday villages, private functions including weddings and corporate, festivals, indoors and outdoors.

They are fully equipped with p.a. system, monitoring, lighting rigs and transport, or are equally at home using in-house p.a. systems and sound engineers.
