I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor – are you the right band for that?

Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come!

Our repertoire features the biggest soul and Motown classics and current chart hits too, so there's certainly something for everyone.

Do you take requests?

We are happy to perform one special request for you – for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.

How long do you take to set-up?

90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.

What time do you play?

At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, anytime between 7pm and midnight.

How long do you play for?

We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.

Can you provide music for our drinks reception?

Yes, we can perform a 1 x 60-minute soul trio set (female & male vocals, piano) or a 60-minute solo piano set, as an add-on which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.

Do you have your own PA and lighting?

Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.

Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?

Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?


Will you perform our first dance?

Yes, as long as we have two weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.

How much space do you require?

We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.

How much power do you require?

2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?

Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.

Can we see you play live before booking?

As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to.

Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.

“Want your wedding guests on the dance floor all night then Soul Masters are the band for you! We opted for the 7-piece option, with a saxophone which was definitely worth it! Amazing vocals and a great mixture of soul and modern music. Thank you to all the band members for making our wedding reception a night full of dancing, fun and laughter!”

“The band were better than we could have possibly have imagined. They sounded fantastic, they were polite, they really got everyone up and dancing and enjoying themselves the whole evening. Choosing to have the 8 piece was a very good decision and really made the difference between an excellent and an awesome experience. I'm going to be recommending them to friends, and will definitely invite them to play at any future events. Thank you and the band for helping to make our wedding a flawless and fantastic experience.”

“WOW! If you are looking for a wedding band, look no further. Soul Masters are incredible. My husband and a lot of his friends are musicians and so the wedding band was a really important decision for us. We knew we wanted soul music and he was dead set on having a horn section. We hired Soul Masters' 8 piece band and they did not disappoint. We had choreographed a short routine to a medley of three songs and the band learned and played it perfectly. The dance floor was never empty and so many of our guests commented on how fabulous they were. To top the night off some of the band played the final song from the balcony and then came onto the dance floor in amongst the crowd, our guests were thrilled. This is the second wedding I have been to where Soul Masters were playing and they were fantastic both times! Thank you so much for making our wedding party unforgettable!”

“The band were just amazing, exactly what we had been looking for and all our guests commented on how great they were - the dance floor was rammed for the whole set and they had such an energy and buzz about them which really filtered through to the guests. Their set was absolutely the highlight of the day for me (as well as the getting married bit of course!)”
