• What's included when I book Soul'd Out UK?
  • Up to 2 hours of partying with soul and motown classics! Unlike other bands, we don’t use backing tracks, click tracks or synthesised horn sections to fill in the gaps, we are 100% LIVE with REAL instruments (10-12 of them to be precise)!
    A guaranteed dance floor full of your guests, totally absorbed in the party atmosphere.
    We’re totally self contained, so where needed we’ll bring our own sound and lighting system.

  • How much do you charge and how do we pay?
  • Our charges are tailored to suit your event, your requirements and the location. Get in touch, and tell us what, how, when, where, and we’ll return the favour with a competitive quote. To confirm the booking we charge a 20% non-returnable deposit so you know the date is yours. This can either be paid by BACS or cheque. The outstanding balance can then be paid on the day in cash. If you’d prefer to pay by BACS or cheque, then we’ll gladly take this off your hands 10 days before the event.

  • Are there any hidden costs?
  • Absolutely not! We will never mess our clients about – the price we give you will be the price you pay!

  • How far will you travel?
  • We’ll travel the length and breadth of the UK to bring the Soul’d Out UK party to you.

  • Do I need to book a DJ?
  • Not necessarily. We provide background music before, in-between and after our sets as standard. If you want we can even plug your iPod into the sound desk if you ask Scott nicely (cake is a great persuasion)! That said, DJ’s work really well and can add that extra sparkle to your evening by keeping your crowd up and dancing! We know some excellent vinyl DJ’s who compliment the band perfectly if you want a complete soul night. In the words of Arthur Conley “DO YOU LIKE GOOD MUSIC?”

  • How much space do you require?
  • For the best show layout, we usually recommend a stage or floor size of 7m wide by 4m deep. On the other hand, you wouldn’t believe the spaces we’ve managed to squeeze into over the years! We don’t mind cosying up to each other… as long as Simon can fit his big horn in!

  • How much power do you require?
  • Unlike the old days where bands used power hungry par can lighting, these days all the equipment is relatively low power. All we need is 4x 3-pin 13A socket outlets (like in your house). That’s enough to power the PA, lighting and back line.
    For live music venues and large scale events, the engineers can download our Technical Specifications.

  • How long do you need to setup?
  • Setting a stage for this lot is no mean feat! Usually 2.5 hours to load the equipment in, set the stage, sound check and stage clear for guests to arrive. So for a usual evening show, access at 5.00pm would be required for 7.30pm stage clear. For weddings this is not always possible due to the afternoon reception taking place in the same room. No problems…. we can do this earlier in the day, just let us know.

  • Do I need to provide food and drink for the band?
  • For usual evening events, refreshments should be provided. Depending on the duration of stay and how far we’re travelling to get to you, we may need subsistence for keeping our energy levels up on stage whether it be honking our horns or dancing like loonies!

  • Do you need me on the day?
  • We will contact you ahead of your event to confirm the details. If you have an event co-ordinator at the venue, put us in touch and we’ll do all our liaising with them. That leaves you free to enjoy your day.

  • Do you require anything else?
  • Ideally, we require a secure room for us to get changed and store our instrument cases. It is preferable for this room to have a mirror and a 3-pin 13A mains socket.

  • Can you provide music throughout the day of our wedding?
  • We have a number of optional extras we can offer:

    • Sax soloist or Sax & Pianist duo for your ceremony service, who can even play you down the aisle!
    • Jazz quartet for your wedding reception playing jazz standards
    • Background music of your choice during the reception, plus the use of wireless mics and the PA system for your speeches (or stitch ups!)

    Contact us for further details.

  • Where can I see you perform?
  • The band do a lot of public shows so you can come and see us before you book. Take a look at our gigs page for our listings and let us know you’re coming. You won’t be disappointed!

  • Do you do requests?
  • Absolutely! This is a common question for first dances at weddings. Take a look at our repertoire and let us know as our shows are planned in advance. If it’s not in our repertoire though you need to tell us 8 weeks before the event so we can arrange and learn it.

  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT Certificate?
  • Sometimes venue’s require this to protect their business. We are completely insured against the public and our equipment electrically sound. Documents are available on request.

  • I have another question for you?
  • No problem, contact us and we will endeavour to answer your question as soon as possible!
