Shola’s solo show comes with a variety of different options. If you’d like a 2-set performance the first set can contain a Diana Ross mini tribute or can focus on the songs of the much loved and recently departed Michael Jackson during his Motown years. Or if for example you’d like some mellow music during a sit-down dinner Shola can provide a jazz set. The second set will then be her trademark “Motown Party” set put together to get people on the dance floor for a good boogie.

Onstage Shola has all the grace glitz and glamour of a true diva and truly looks the part with her graceful silhouette lovely smile and diamante jewellery. She can also slip into a mini dress and go-go boots for a more casual look and loves to “get down” during the party numbers.

Her vocals have been described as sounding like “chocolate soul” and she has a big voice that attracts positive feedback wherever she sings. With a warm inviting stage presence and charming persona it’s hard not to be enthralled by her performance.

She spent eight years living in the USA and worked with one of the world’s top vocal coaches Seth Riggs (he’s coached Stevie Wonder Natalie Cole Michael Jackson and Luther Vandross). Shola has sung at gigs supporting stars like Florence + The Machine, Paul Young and Tony Hadley at top venues such as Shepherd’s Bush Empire and Hyde Park and has entertained at many weddings parties and corporate functions in front of audiences as large as 15000. She has also performed overseas in cities such as New York Los Angeles and Moscow. She has also sung in Bahrain and been featured on Iranian TV.

The show can come with just Shola Kaye and top notch Bose L1 model II PA suitable for up to 250 people or for events where a full band is required she can provide a 5kW PA full stage lighting disco and sound/lighting engineer for an additional fee.

If you opt for the live jazz show you won’t be disappointed. Shola had a year-long residency at Harvey Nichols in London performing her jazz set to many highly satisfied customers. Her band members have played with Courtney Pine Soul II Soul Chaka Khan, The Waterboys and other successful acts. She has been praised for her great jazz phrasing and loves singing the standards.

And for when just one diva isn’t enough you can book ‘The Motown Marvels’. Available in duo or trio format Shola teams up with one or two additional girls.
