The Commitments tribute staring Dave Finnigan
Twenty Five years on, neither time age nor music has managed to tame one of the soul survivors of the Commitments. Mickah Wallace is brasher and louder than ever, and continuing to spread the gospel of soul to the undisputed masses.
No one could ever have predicted the huge success of Alan Parker’s black comedy, THE COMMITMENTS, helping to launch the rebirth of true soul rhythm ‘n’ blues.
Everyone can remember the charismatic character portrayed by Andrew Strong, however for 10 years since the film Dave Finnegan successfully fronted the touring band ‘The Stars From The Commitments’ and has appreciated accolades from around the globe, performing in countries like Brazil, USA, Canada, all over Europe, South Africa, Scandinavia, the Middle East, India, Japan, Malaysia, Australia, and New Zealand performing to in excess of a million people.
He has performed alongside such legendary artistes as James Brown, Wilson Picket, Edwin Starr, BB King, Sam Moore, Steve ‘The Colonel’ Cropper, Dennis Edwards (The Temptations), Dan Ackroyd and many, many more. It was Sam Moore who questioned, “How can a little white guy have a soul and a voice that’s so black!”
