About Soul 45's

Full Description: 
Blending timeless funk, soul, rare groove, R&B, acid jazz and disco, the Soul 45's traverse the age of soul classics from James Brown to Jamiroquai. More than that - the band repertoire also features old favourites and current pop hits. The band can perform as a five–piece right up to a twelve-piece band and beyond. Their favourite line-up is an eight-piece consisting of male and female lead vocals, guitar, bass, drums/vocals, keyboard, sax and trumpet, but extra male and female vocalists, a baritone sax and percussion can be added for larger events. Our quoted price is for an eight-piece band.

Boasting some of the best young musicians and singers from the upper echelons of the session world, individually band members have performed with artists including Adele, Taio Cruz, Maxi Priest, Shalamar, Plan B, Larry Graham, Terence Trent D’Arby, Mike Skinner, Jools Holland Big Band and The Miles Davis band and have appeared throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East alongside successful artists including Rose Royce, Boney M, Jimmy James and the Vagabonds and the late great Edwin Starr. Band members have written soundtracks for Sony Playstation and the film Run Lola Run, and have amassed several musical degrees between them from colleges including the London College of Music and the world renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. As a band they have appeared on BBC TV and have played for an elite list of past clients including The Moroccan Royal Family and Manchester City Football Club as well as performing at weddings across Europe and the Middle East.

The band provide a high quality PA and lighting system, and can play background music at no extra charge on iPod/CD before their performance, during their breaks and after the performance. The Soul 45's generally play two one-hour sets, and can play an extra one-hour set for an additional fee if requested. The band can also provide a variety of entertainment options for the earlier part of your function such as a pianist, guitarist or jazz trio/quartet.
