Emotion Emotion Click here to hear them.

Emotion was formed and originally called “The Emotions” in 1995 alongside American soul and motown singer Kenny Weathers.
When Kenny returned to the States, The Emotions, winners of many awards, were determined to continue and needed a fitting replacement. After much searching they found the ideal person; ‘Cole’. Not only has Cole filled Kenny’s shoes in the soul & motown department, he’s brought a more varied feel and selection to the show. Cole is a powerful, versatile vocalist and saxophone player with a number of vocal styles. This presented a whole new set of possibilities adding another dimension to an already superb live show band. The long and successful track record of reliability and professionalism of 'The Emotions' is set to continue for a long time to come. The Emotions, felt a slight title change would reflect their new show, so the name ‘Cole & Emotion’ was born. The Show ~ As with most acts at this level the show is based on either one solid 60-70 minute spot, or two 40-45 minute spots approx, and the time of the performance can be worked around critical parts of the evening. It's best to arrange anything special in advance, see advice and FAQs. Cole & Emotion bring a 4.2k pa system and lights including 4 computerised scanners, datamoon and 10k up front flood system. The band aim to get equipment in, and start setup at 6.30pm. It is essential that we do a full sound check to ensure the highest level of quality; we try to keep any disturbance to a minimum. In accordance with musicians union guidelines the performance should be ended by midnight.
