About


The Soul Rebels are one of the UK's top funk and soul party bands and have dozens of glowing reviews, having performed at hundreds private parties, corporate events and weddings around the UK and also in Europe.

The Soul Rebels have performed at many renowned venues 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 wedding venues across the country.

The smallest line up is the 5-piece consisting of female vocal, guitar, bass, drums and keyboards - this is the perfect line up for smaller venues and events which are unable to host our bigger line ups. Our female vocalists are some of the best 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 - we recommend a minimum of the 7-piece 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 he 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 dance floor!

We saw The Soul Rebels perform at a friends wedding and thought they were amazing. As soon as we were organising our own party, we knew we had to have them play for us. We were not disappointed. They were every bit as good as the first time we'd seen them. They are very professional, super friendly and great musicians. We love the style of their music, but it's their energy that really hits you. Every member of the band gives it their all and you really feel like they are enjoying their performance. The female vocalist has got so much energy. She makes her performance really personal to you and is on the dance floor with you....amazing! We didn't stop dancing all night!

The band were absolutely incredible at our wedding and definitely made our day that bit extra special. We have had so many comments on how good they were and people wanting to book them for other events. They were great in letting me sing with them - a huge highlight of my day - so thank you so much. Would book them for any and every future event!!

THE BEST NIGHT EVER!! From the communication, our first dance, two amazing one hour sets and having so much energy which reflected our wedding party - the Soul Rebels were insane. I didn't leave the dance floor once when they were playing and I got so many compliments about the band and asking where we found you!!! I hope to have you again at my 30th!

I simply cannot praise James and his band enough! They were brilliant! Vocals were amazing and we loved how they involved the guests. There was a great choice of songs and I don't think there was minute they were playing that the dance floor wasn't busy! I lost count how may times a guest complimented then and asked how I'd found them - I just hope I find another excuse in the future to book them again!!

I would just like to thank you and your band for providing us with great music on Saturday night. The way you started with the slower songs worked perfectly too.I have had so many comments of praise for the band. I have never seen our guys dance so much.

She Interacted with the crowd so well and I even ended up dancing a lot, which made my wife happy as that's rare.The band have a great grooving sound and I hope we have another large event someday so we can book you again.

I’d like to thank you so much for the 3 amazing sets you performed at my 40th Birthday. If I had dreamed of the perfect party it would never have come close to the reality. The whole band were superb, slick and professional. Sasha’s vocals outstanding and the way she works the crowd is just incredible. Loved being able to perform 'Never too Much’ with you even at the last minute. You truly are the perfect band to get a party started but not so good at getting it finished!! We wanted you to play for another 3 hours! Hahah! Loved it so much, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my special day the most incredible evening. Feedback from all of the guests has been amazing and I have passed along details so hope you get more bookings! You deserve it!

Dear Sasha and the band, just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for your role in our amazing wedding last weekend. More people than I can count told me that it was the best band they had ever seen at a wedding. All generations had a blast dancing along to the tunes, which is something we really wanted to achieve. Also, thanks so much for being patient and letting us go over time a little at the end. People were just having such a good time (mainly because the band music had been so happy-making) that no one was in any mood to stop. The sign of a great party! We ended up dancing round the camp fire in the field till the wee hours of the morning. Once again, thanks a million and I will be singing your praises whenever the topic of wedding bands come up with people in the future! Love Sophie and Chris x

We had so many compliments from our guests about the band, how they sang a great range of songs that got everyone on the dance floor. Sasha was great interacting with all of us on the dance floor, everyone loved how she came out for a boogie. Thank you so much for helping to create a truly amazing party atmosphere.

James the main organiser was extremely easy to deal with and did everything to accommodate special requests. The whole band were great fun and a pleasure to have around. I have been asked many times about where we found the band as they were so great! I would absolutely book them again and would happily use Warble Entertainment who were also very easy to deal with.

The Soul Rebels were fantastic at our wedding and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Both they and Warble made the process of booking easy and straightforward. The band were accommodating and learnt some new songs for us. They were punctual and really just set themselves up and got on with raising the roof! A real focal point of the evening for our special day. I think they are going to get several bookings from guests at our wedding who loved their energy, range and ability to fill our dance floor. Well done guys and be assured if you book the Soul Rebels for your occasion expect to have a fantastic time.

    FAQs

    How long do you take to set up? 
    The band requests a minimum 1.5 hours hour to set up and get changed, but the total amount of time really depends on the band line up, the size of the room, and access etc.

    How much space do you need? 
    The band requires a minimum of 5m across by 3m deep for the 5 piece band. A stage isn't necessary (although it's a bonus if you do have one). We can also play outside, but will need to be under cover in case of rain as our equipment is easily damaged.

    How long do you play for?
    We usually play for 3 x 40 minute sets or 2 x 60 minute sets. Extended sets, or additional acoustic sets such as duo or trio performances can also be arranged.

    Can you learn any songs not on your repertoire as a special request/first dance? 
    Yes the band would be happy to learn one new song free of charge. Please give at least 3 weeks notice to learn the song. There may be occasions where we have to ask for an alternative if the song is not suitable for the line up (e.g. due to instrumentation).

    Can you play at our wedding ceremony/drinks reception/dinner as well as providing music for the evening? 
    Yes, this is something the band do regularly. You may prefer to have a smaller combo earlier in the day (e.g. piano vocal duo during dinner) and have the rest of the band arrive in the evening.

    Do you provide music during your breaks? 
    The band can provide a party playlist between live sets. Or if you would prefer to create your own playlist the band can provide a connection their sound system.

    What's included in the price?
    The standard quote includes all travel costs, and upto 2 hours of live music, plus professional sound system and lighting. Each event is different so the band can adjust the quote according to your particular requirements.

    Can we come and see you live?
    99% of the band's performances are private events such as weddings or corporate parties which makes it difficult to invite prospective clients to come and watch. This is why we povide videos of the band performing, aswell as mp3's and testimonials to give you a true impression of the band and what to expect.
