Valentines night....we headed out to The Three Steps, Cowley. It's actually a 1960's designed Pub, on three levels. Each level is an octagon, the biggest with a tiny stage.
It's a community pub and it's been expanding its facilities recently - including live music.
You couldn't do better than go to see 'The Power of Soul', a six piece we love. They play an extensive range of soul classics including some of the instrumentals made famous by Motown and Stax.
It was great music played by some seasoned professionals, although the guitarist and drummer were new faces to us.
After a couple of solos in the last set, the drummer got a well deserved burst of applause.
The whole Motown/Stax inheritance can easily fill an evening, everybody loves it and not just the obvious soul fans dotted around the hall. With three sets and a set list as long as your arm, 'The Power of Soul' never fail to cheer everybody up.
