About


Founder Michael has performed across the world and currently fronts one of the UK’s most successful Take That tribute acts. Two of their members are graduates in music technology and have spent recent years touring Europe. The keyboardist is a regular session musician for up and coming artists and plays in his local church. Their drummer was taught, coached and loved by Showaddywaddy’s Romeo Challenger.

Soulfire all play to a grade 8 standard and embrace even the most challenging of requests – even on stage! Perhaps one of the most interesting to date was their immediate rendition of 'Gold Digger / I Got A Woman' by Ray Charles.

Soulfire will have your dance floor filled from the very start of the show, to the very end, and you'll still be begging for more and more.

The band were amazing for our wedding. We had the pleasure of seeing them at another wedding and knew this was the band we wanted. We had so many people comment on how good they were and how after the first dance they were straight into it to get you up on the dance floor. My wife and I and the guests could have danced until sunrise with these guys playing. Michael and the rest of the band were fantastic to deal with and we would highly recommend them to anyone.

Soulfire were just incredible!!! All of our guests are still talking about how amazing they were and they got everyone on the dance floor all night. The singer was an awesome front man with the best voice and got everyone in the party spirit. He was friendly, helpful & reliable which is so important when you have so much to organise. Soulfire were a big part of our special day and we cant recommend them highly enough.

The band were amazing, they filled the room with energy, passion and creativity and the floor was full all night! Really impressed with them and would highly recommend. Great voices, great music! They did play a few songs we had 'veto'd', but we'll let them off since the guests loved them, even if we didn't! Thanks for providing a great service and easy communication throughout, too!

Soulfire were absolutely unreal!! Floods of compliments from our guests.

I can't say enough good things about Soulfire. They were very considerate and courteous in our communication prior to the wedding, and had all the bases covered. Despite being in a marquee with only a curtain separating us we couldn't hear them setting up at all, and they asked permission before starting their soundcheck. As soon as they started playing I knew we'd made the perfect choice for us. A perfect mix of classic and modern songs with a fresh and original sound that kept the dance floor packed all night! So many of our guests commented on how brilliant they were and a few asked where we got them from! I would happily recommend these guys to anyone looking for a real crowd pleaser with a bit of a difference! Absolutely spectacular entertainment and lovely guys to boot.

This band were one of the best things that could have happened to our wedding. They were incredible. They bought life and soul to the evening and everyone wanted the music to last forever. A special thank you for the additional Bob Marley track, that moment was a highlight for both of us and we just cannot say enough good things about you. Everyone at our wedding would book this band and we have had endless compliments about them. They covered a variety of music and reacted to the crowd brilliantly. You will not regret booking this band! Last thing to say is... 'one more song'! Love from the new Mr and Mrs Campbell xx

Booked the band well in advance (February) for a December Wedding - reviews were all fantastic and we were certainly not disappointed. Excellent communication with Jonathan before the event. He was very accommodating of extra requests and flexibility for timings on the day. They arrived discreetly and set up with plenty of time to spare. We were utterly amazed by their performance and didn't want it to end. All of our guests were extremely complimentary and we could not have asked for a better performance. Would thoroughly recommend!

Thank you to Soulfire for being amazing. They were very professional and extremely lovely guys. The sets were just what we wanted and played our preferred songs from their set list. We also asked for a couple of songs not on the list, including one for our first dance and they were just fantastic. All our guests commented on how great they were and we hope our paths cross again so we get to enjoy the delights of Soulfire. Thank you guys!

The boys were beyond our expectations. From the first note to the last, they were brilliant. The got our party started, I've never seen a dance floor fill so quick. And the fun just didn't stop all night. They sounded and looked great, had an amazing range of music and accommodated our first dance song and made it sound better than we could have ever imagined. Our only regret is not tipping the guys on the night, they were just fantastic. If we could rate them more than 5 stars, we would. All our friends and family commented on how good they were. Book them without hesitation if you want a party with great atmosphere and good vibes. Ian and Emma x

The band were absolutely awesome; performance and repertoire were second to none and their patience with over running speeches, peculiar first dance song choice and general on the day last minute plan changes was fantastic. Everybody commented on how great they were, they were just what we wanted and really great lads to boot. I can't speak highly enough of them, and if I have cause to book a band again I wouldn't ask anyone else... Seriously top drawer band.

Their music and song arrangements are great, adding their own take on classic songs and often making them even better. They put 110% into their performances enjoying what they're doing and getting everyone on the dance floor. Cannot recommend this band enough, all our guests kept asking us where we found them as they were so good! Thank you to the band you were fab!

Soulfire provided an excellent set that had our guests on the floor from beginning to end. They were incredibly flexible in learning a song outside of the setlist as a special request and the communication between myself and Alex was fantastic. He was great at responding to emails and calls. All guests commented on how amazing the band were and they even gave us an unexpected yet wonderful surprise dedicating Bob Marley's 'One Love'. We would strongly recommend this band. Their talents blended wonderfully together and their energy was infectious.

Soulfire exceeded our expectations in every way. Prior to the party the band contacted us to discuss our event and suggested a format for the evening which we felt worked really well. We were very impressed by their professionalism, their careful choice of songs for the party and their ability to really get the party going. We were so pleased with how the party went and they really made the party one to remember. So many of our friends have commented on how good they were and I wouldn't hesitate in booking them again. They are a very talented group musically but they also gave a very entertaining performance and we can't thank them enough for making our party that extra bit special. Finally, I was very pleased with the service provided throughout by Warble Entertainment, from them initially suggesting some bands to consider for our party, the very smooth booking process and keeping in contact with us right up until the date of the event.

It was our big night! Sell out Rugby Club Ball. We had a very diverse crowd with the age range of 18 – 75. We needed a group that could not only entertain these people but keep them wanting more. After hours of searching the internet we noticed Soulfire. They appeared to have an extensive duke box style playlist which included some old and modern soul classics. The internet sample recordings sounded good and they appeared to represent good value for money. We booked them. They turned up on time a nice well-mannered group of young extremely talented musicians. Wow were they good! they filled the dance floor from the start of their first song to the last plus several encores. Two hours plus later and not a dissatisfied punter in the room we let them leave the stage. As an organiser you pray for good feedback when you book the entertainment and two weeks on guests are still raving about the performance of Soulfire. On behalf of Derby RFC thanks very much boys for making our Ball one of the best nights ever. If you’re planning a function and you’re reading this book them before they go big!! Kind Regards Roxy, Karen, Jane & Victoria. DRFC Ball Organisers
