Big Mac's Wholly Soul Band appearing at this event

Big Mac's were formed in 1990 as the house band for the legendary Hollywood Club in Newport. Within months of their formation The Commitments film was released and the band, being of a similar size and specializing too in 60s soul music, were inundated with work, constantly playing in every club, pub and eat house in South Wales! In a short time they were supporting The Commitments at a number of venues and were soon welcoming offers of work that took them to holiday camps, five star hotels and nightclubs.
