London boasts music from every genre and sub-culture, but one enduringly steady beat with over fifty years’ pedigree is soul music. It’s no surprise that London wedding couples and corporate event planners are always looking to hire soul and Motown bands in the capital city. The rich sound, raw emotion and upbeat sentiment that gets people dancing is a sure-fire winner on such magical occasions.
Originally from the United States, soul has influenced rock and pop over subsequent decades, and driven world-famous labels such as Motown, Stax and Atlantic. Think Otis Reading, James Brown and Smokey Robinson and you’re hitting the right notes.
Warble Entertainment has soul bands that cover all of the classic tracks, with playlists from artists such as Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and the Jackson 5. But if you want more modern-era recordings to lift your event we’ve got Amy Winehouse covered, and funked-up acts like Bruno Mars and Pharrell Williams.
All of our London soul bands offer flexibility. Take London-based act Union Street. Six young and outrageously talented musicians; they found common soul ground at The London Centre of Contemporary Music. The exciting combo play soul, disco, funk and more.
