More information about Soul Flight

The smallest line up is the 5-piece band 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 our bigger line ups.

View our list of the UK's best soul & Motown bands ➡️

Our 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, we recommend a minimum of the 7-piece wedding band which is the same as the 5-piece, plus male vocal and saxophone.

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

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.

Our 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 dancefloor!

If funk is your thing we 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, as well 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 7pc, which is the smallest line up featuring the perfect combination of male & female vocals, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and saxophone.

Each of the singers are at the top of their game and know exactly how to get your guests off their seats and onto the dance floor!

Having a male and female vocalist creates a great dynamic on stage, and allows the band to perform the widest variety of genres.

If live horns are important to you, we highly recommend adding the trumpet.

There is nothing quite like the sound of a live horn section for that full, fat, funk sound, and having 2 horns working in combination allows the band to play more of the brass-heavy numbers where more than one brass member is essential.

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, as well as perform choreography on stage and really work the dance floor!

You can also choose extra acoustic performances as a duo or trio in addition to the full band if required.

This is a very popular option during the wedding ceremony, drinks reception, or dinner before the party really begins!

Included within the price is a professional sound system suitable for up to 200 people, plus stage lighting and dancefloor lighting. The Soul Flight Band can also cater for much larger events - prices available on request.

Background music or party music can be provided between sets, and iPod connection is available if you wish to make your own playlist.

The band also boasts a range of optional extras such as wireless microphone for speeches, CD decks & turntables if you are hiring a DJ, starcloth backdrop and coloured uplighting around the room, all at preferential rates for customers who book Soul Flight.

Whether you are looking for the ultimate Funk, Soul wedding band or entertainment for your private party or corporate event, you are guaranteed a spectacular performance that you and your guests will never forget.

So if you're looking to hire the finest showband London has to offer for your wedding or corporate event, get in touch with Soul Flight.

"Wow! We don't even know where to start - from start to finish it was such a pleasure dealing with Soul Flight. James was our contact throughout and was so responsive, friendly and accommodating. Everything was so easy to organise through FixTheMusic, and James and the band listened to our preferences and certainly delivered on the day.
If you are considering booking Soul Flight - do not wait! We had high expectations from the band's social media/YouTube but were not prepared for how incredible they would be. Our guests were delighted even during the sound check.
During the band's 2 sets the dancefloor was filled and the band members danced in and amongst our guests and the saxophonist was especially amazing.
Our guests still can't stop talking about the band and they really made our wedding evening.
Thanks so much! "

"Hi James, A huge thank you to Soul Flight for playing at our wedding two weeks ago! We and everyone there thought you were fantastic, we have had lots of comments about how great you all were. As you probably noticed the dance floor was packed the whole time! Sorry about the 3 encores! Please take it as a compliment."

"Soul Flight exceeded all expectations for a wedding band - their musicianship, ability to get the crowd moving and interaction with the audience was staggering. So many of our guests commented on how amazing they were and we thought exactly the same. Their choices of music from the examples we gave were brilliant too, a fantastic combination of funk soul and disco - new and old. To put it simply, we couldn’t have expected any better and would recommend them to anyone organising an event where you want great tunes, a funky atmosphere and people on the dance floor for the entire set!"

"We absolutely loved having Soul Flight at our wedding! Their sets were fantastic, singing all of our favourite songs that we had requested. We had a lot of feedback from guests saying how much they enjoyed the band and it was the best Funk & Soul they had heard. The musicians were amazing and the lead singers were outstanding! The band equipment set up and take down was seamless. We would definitely recommend hiring Soul Flight for any occasion!"

"We knew when organising our wedding that having a good band was a priority, and Soul Flight well and truly delivered. If you’re looking for a band who will keep a big wedding party made up of young and old on the dance floor all night – look no further! Every song was a cracker and every one of the musicians and singers was just phenomenally talented. We’ve had more compliments on the band from guests than we can count. James was brilliant at helping us organise the band, even going the extra mile to set us up with a fab DJ and roaming saxophonist. Truly, we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you Soul Flight and we really hope we’ll be able to dance the night away again with you soon!"

"Stop searching for a wedding band and just choose Soul Flight! James was incredible to work with every step of the way in the lead up to our big day which makes wedding planning so much easier. On the day, the band exceeded my already very high expectations. They are true performers with a keen skill to read the dance floor, and played all of the songs we wanted to hear. The dance floor was packed for 4 straight hours and we couldn't have wished for a better party. All of our guests were so complimentary and wanted to know where we found you! Thank you for being incredible and for making our reception the most memorable part of our day."

I just wanted to say a huge huge huge thank you for being so spectacular, you exceeded our expectations and it’s safe to say everyone thought you were incredible.

"Soul Flight were totally fantastic at my son's wedding! They threw themselves into their performance and judged the audience and the mood perfectly. The quality of their music and voices were amazing and they were obviously enjoying themselves. They were a pleasure to deal with, both on the night and prior to the wedding. They were extremely professional and relaxed, which was the perfect combination. Everyone there commented on how good they were and I have no hesitation in highly recommending them. Absolutely brilliant!"

My only regret is that I didn't get to spend all night on the dance floor!!.. I am sure you both understand that you have to spend a lot of time going from guest to guest. We would both love to come and hear you playing again, so if you have any up and coming gigs we would love to know the dates. Thanks again for making our day so special."

Thank you for being so great to work with in the lead up to the wedding as well. We are yet to receive back our photos but will be sure to tag the band in those we upload to Instagram.

"Hi James, I just wanted to say thank you to Andy and the band for an excellent day on Friday. They played amazingly well and really set the mood of our party. I felt bad because the food was a little further away from the band and it looked like people walked away and left the music, but the sound travelled well and actually the whole pub was enjoying it!! It really was a great choice and everyone loved them from tunes, so the amazing jackets, the excellent instruments, and the relaxed vibe. So thank you everyone. Many thanks, Kathryn Hinchcliffe."

"I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for your excellent sets at my niece's wedding at Crabbs Barn last night. I really don't think I've ever seen a wedding band such as yourselves where every single thing was so absolutely spot on; the astounding musicianship of the band, the phenomenal vocals and amazing stage presence of the singer, the variety of the repertoire, the tightness of the performance, the well-balanced sound, the engagement with the punters, the overall presentation, I could go on...Clare and Andrew had a fantastic wedding day, and it was so beautifully concluded with your 3 sets. They, and indeed the rest of the family and guests, were still raving about you today, and will doubtless continue to do so for a while yet. I very much hope to see you again, and will certainly recommend you to anyone who is on the lookout for a wedding band."

Literally every single person (on the evening - and since) has made a comment about how amazing you all are! The dance floor was full from start to finish - and we really do have you to thank for that. We also LOVED the DJ set - which picked up on our vibe perfectly - and had everyone dancing (again!) We keep saying that "if only there wasn't a cut off point for the music at our venue" - you genuinely wouldn't have got rid of us! You guys brought the vibe(s) and made our day!

Many of our friends and families expressed how amazed they were by your performance, and how thoroughly they enjoyed and loved it. You made the evening so perfect for all of us, and I will not at all be amazed if we get loads of requests in future to share your details so that you can rock other events.
