funk and soul band London

About The Soulshine Band

We love nothing more than getting you and all your guests onto the dancefloor. Infact, we live for it!

Soulshine Band is formed from some of London’s finest musicians. Our band members have studied at the top music conservatoires in the country and have shared the stage with such legends as Chaka Khan, Katy Perry, Adele, Ne-Yo, and Ed Sheeran to name just a few!

Our singers are at the top of the game, knowing exactly how to work the crowd into a frenzy! We love to get interactive – so expect to see our singers strutting their stuff on the dancefloor and encouraging your guests show us their latest dance moves!

We have different line ups to suit all budgets – our smallest is the 7pc, which is the perfect combination of male & female vocals, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and  saxophone. Having a male and female vocalist creates a great dynamic on stage, and allows the band to perform a wide variety of genres. Our saxophone player is one of the best in the business, and never fails to impress!

If budget/ space allows – we highly recommend adding trumpet. There is nothing quite like the sound of a live horn section for that full, fat, funk sound, and having 2 horns working together allows the band to play more of the classic funk tracks by James Brown, Curtis Mayfield etc.

If you’re looking for something different, 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. Our bongo/ conga player really looks the part and is sure to wow your guests, and this gives the band a more authentic disco sound and flavour.

For the ultimate line up, the band can provide 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!

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 upto 200 people, plus stage lighting and dancefloor lighting. The Soulshine 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 The Soulshine Band.

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.
