What is so special about The Soniques?
Well let’s cut to the chase! The Soniques is a very experienced band, that have played regularly together for over 5 years. We are made up only of high level London-based session musicians.
When you hire the band, you are hiring a group of musicians who entertain at the highest level of their industry. This is the real deal.
Finally, when you hire a band for your event, you want to ensure that they sound amazing, look amazing, get everyone on the dance floor, play an incredible set and make the whole administrative process extremely easy. The Soniques tick every single box.
Will we need to sort much out on the actual day?
No. We will take care of everything. We will set up, run the sound and lighting, make announcements, and give your guests the night of their lives.
I want a DJ as well as a band, how would that work?
Hiring a DJ through us is by far the most cost efficient way of having a DJ. We provide a Band + DJ package to many of our clients. Our DJ has professional level equipment and has set many a party on fire with an extensive barrage of hits.
This DJ set can be very closely catered to your needs, with unlimited requests.
If we want you to play for longer, is that possible?
Yes. We can discuss the rates we charge for an extra hour of music.
How long do you usually play for?
We usually do 2 x 60 minute sets, or 3 x 40 minute sets. Whatever works best for you.
Can we request any songs?
Yes! You can request 2 songs and more if you choose the full music package.
Furthermore, you can choose 5 songs from our repertoire, to ensure they are in the sets that we play.
What does hiring the band include?
The band includes PA hire, lighting, travel, a sound man, your choice of at least 2 songs, and the selection of at least 5 songs from our repertoire, to hone the music to your specific taste.
How far will you travel?
We will travel to anywhere worldwide!
Anywhere within the M25 London is included in our standard package. For events further afield, we charge a bit extra to cover our fuel costs.
Should your event be a 3 hour drive or more from London, we ask you to provide overnight accommodation for the band so that we don’t have to travel at 4am!
"The band were INCREDIBLE and everyone had such an amazing time. So thank you so much for making it such a fantastic evening. The male singer was fantastic and was great in getting everyone involved and interacting with everyone so nicely. The band as whole were fantastic, the choice of songs was brilliant and everybody enjoyed the variety. A lot of our friends are also very musical and in bands themselves and EVERYONE said how incredible the band were – thank you so much for making the night unforgettable."

"The Soniques performed in one of our evening venues at Momentum and were absolutely incredible. The dance floor was packed full every night with queues out of the door to get into the venue!"
– Mike Rickards, 22 February 2019, event at Momentum, London
"Thanks! The band were brilliant! Everyone was raving about them the next day! The dancefloor was packed from the first song to the last and everyone wanted more. The sound was fantastic and every member was very talented. They really interacted with the crowd and made it feel intimate and gave it a buzz. We have had a couple of engaged people ask after the band as well."

"Having The Soniques at our wedding was AMAZING. We wanted to keep dancing all night, as did all of our guests. Unlike some weddings where it takes a while to get going, with The Soniques at our wedding people couldn’t wait to get on the dance floor. In the run up to the wedding they were so easy to work with. Because of the smooth communication with them there was nothing to worry about or think about in the week running up to the event. Several people have asked us about hiring the band themselves and almost everyone mentions how great they are! We would 100% recommend them for any event needing a great band to create an amazing atmosphere where people dance until dawn!"
