Edwin Dukes

Soul & Motown Singer

About Edwin Dukes

The absolute king of Soul & Motown, Edwin has been our top soul artiste for over a decade. His playlist of the best-known all-time classics is his very own labour of love and his inimitable style and charm instantly endear him to everyone. A true professional, Edwin will wow every audience.

Edwin Dukes is The Soul Man. Edwin is based in the North West and is recognised as one of the best Soul and Motown performers in the UK. Edwin’s knowledge of the Soul and Motown classics from the early sixties is obvious from the moment he takes the stage. He covers hit songs from the last 6 decades and are performed with Edwin’s typical enthusiastic style and panache. His stage presence is commanding and his infectious smile and dance routines are legendary! Edwin has been a major part of the Manchester Soul and Motown music-scene for many years originally as the front-man for the fantastically popular Manchester Soul, Motown and Reggae band ‘Rum-Baba’.

Edwin decided in the early nineties to go solo and since then has been proudly represented by Music Business Management. Edwin has collected a number of awards for his show such as ‘Best Soul and Motown Show’ and ‘Club Act Of The Year’ and deserves all he has achieved – and more! Edwin’s knowledge of Soul and Motown music and especially his knowledge of the ever popular Northern Soul will put any ‘specialist’ DJ to shame. He is a true aficionado and master of his craft and a thoroughly nice person both on and off-stage.
