3. Soul Flight
Average booking price: £4,000 - £6,750 (as of November 2023)
Location: London, UK

Soul Flight brings Funk, Soul, and Disco back to the 21st Century.

None of the cheese, and only the best grooves to guarantee a packed dance floor all night long!

Based in London, Soul Flight are one of the UK's leading funk & soul bands, having performed at hundreds of weddings and corporate events around the UK and also in Europe.

The smallest line up is the 5pc consisting of female vocal, guitar, bass, drums and keyboards - this is the perfect line up for smaller venues and events which are not able to host their bigger line ups.

Their female vocals are some of the best London in the business, and know exactly how to get your guests off their seats and onto the dancefloor!

To truly experience what the band can offer though, they recommend a minimum of the 7pc band which is the same as the 5pc plus male vocal and saxophone.

Their male vocalist oozes soul and your guests are sure to love him!

View Soul Flight

Having a male and female duo front the band creates a wonderful dynamic on stage, and as a team they are able to work the crowd much better.

Their saxophone player is one of the best in the business, and when it's time for him to shine be prepared to see your guests' jaws drop as plays the most captivating melodies.

If you're lucky he may even leave the stage and join you and your guests in the middle of the dancedloor!

If funk is your thing they highly recommend adding a trumpet. There is nothing quite like the sound of a full brass section for that fat, funk sound. and having 2 horns working in combination allows the band to play more of the brass heavy songs such as "Move On Up" by Curtis Mayfield.

For a more tropical edge, why not add some percussion? Bongos and congas are a staple of disco and house music, but percussion is rarely seen on stage these days. So having a live bongo/ conga player is sure to please your guests, and this gives the band a more authentic disco sound and flavour.

For those looking for the ultimate line up, the band can complete their line up with an additional female vocalist. Having 3 vocalists allows the band to create luscious vocal harmonies, aswell as perform choreography on stage and really work the dancefloor!

Expect to hear your favourite Funk, Soul, Motown and Disco classics by Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Chic, Earth Wind & Fire, Chaka Khan, Prince and Michael Jackson.

Not only that, but Soul Flight Band bring you right up to date with more recent hits inspired by these old school legends, with Beyonce, Bruno Mars and Pharell Williams and many more..!

For those of you looking for something super cool and off the charts, Soul Flight also perform a number of rare groove, funk, and acid jazz tracks which will keep even the most discerning listener happy!

All of this is presented to you in the unique Soul Flight style with glitz, glam, flair and energy for a spectacular night that you and your guests will never forget!

The Soul Flight Band has performed at many renowned venues in London and beyond including Blenheim Palace, Emirates Stadium, Madame Tussauds, The London Science Museum, Bush Hall, The Savoy, The Ritz, The Hilton, as well as 100's of smaller wedding venues across the country.

The most popular line up is the 7 piece soul & Motown band, which is the smallest line up featuring the perfect combination of male & female vocals, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and saxophone.

Below are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about soul and Motown bands that we receive:

What kind of events do the soul bands perform at?
Our soul bands perform at a wide variety of events, including weddings, corporate events, product launches, birthday parties, charity functions and festivals.
Will there be more than one singer in the band?
Many of our bands include both a male and female singer in the band. This allows the band to cover a wider range of songs in their repertoire. Some bands also have male and female backing vocals. The number of additional vocals will have an impact on the overall price of the band, so some of the cheaper Motown soul bands will probably include only one soul singer.
What musical instruments will be in the soul band?
The standard line-up will include singer (or singers), guitar, bass guitar, drums and percussion and possibly keyboards. Additional instruments include a horn or brass section made up of trumpet, saxophone or trombone.
What kind of songs will the soul bands perform?
The bands perform a range of classic soul hits to more modern soul songs. Examples of artists the bands cover include Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, The Supremes, Sister Sledge, Kool And The Gang, Jackie Wilson, Luther Vandross, Curtis Mayfield, Chic, Chaka Khan, Earth, Wind & Fire, James Brown, The Supremes and The Four Tops. As well as soul music, the bands will draw inspiration from other musical genres, especially Motown, disco and funk. More modern soul bands will also have some RnB, ska and hip hop.
How much does it cost to hire a soul band?
Soul bands tend to be more expensive than the average pop or rock covers band. This is largely because of the number of musicians and singers required to produce an authentic soul sound. The average price of a soul band on FixTheMusic is £1,850. The prices range from around £1,500 for a smaller soul band, up to £3,000 or more, depending on the size of soul band you choose to hire.
How long do the soul bands perform for?
As is standard for wedding or corporate entertainment, most live soul bands will provide around 2 hours of live music. This is often split into 2 x 60 minute sets, or 3 x 40 minute sets. The bands will provide background music (a "laptop DJ service") in between the live music. Most bands arrive at the venue at around 5pm and expect to finish by 12 midnight.
Is it possible to see the soul bands perform live before I book?
It's often not possible to see the soul bands perform live before you book them for your wedding or event. Most professional soul bands rarely perform at public gigs, as most of their bookings are at private events such as weddings and corporate events. It is possible from time to time though, so feel free to ask your band and they'll let you know if they have any public gigs coming up.
Should I hire a soul band for my wedding?
Soul bands bring a unique flavour to wedding receptions. Their size usually means they provide a visual spectacle to the evening's entertainment. And the range of songs covered by such bands (from soul to pop, funk and maybe even some rock), means there is usually something for each of your wedding guests.
