“The show reel for One Soul did not do them justice, they were so so amazing live and absolutely MADE our wedding!!!!”Marcia Mason - Wedding, Nonsuch Mansion, Surrey
“Whats not to love..We asked One Soul to perform at our wedding after speaking with them and listening to their videos on their website.
They were fantastic on the day, we didn't have to worry about any of the setup and planning they took care of everything. In between the music sets they socialised with our guests which made it extra special, all of our guests have said how great they are both in the musical talent and personalities. The music itself was amazing and the positive feedback we got from all our guests made booking them worth while. As a musician myself (Joel) I was very picky when searching for a band to perform on our special day, I have to say One Soul exceeded mine and my wife expectations and we couldn't recommend them anymore.”Joel & Lauren - Wedding, Severn The Grand Hotel, Torquay
“We had these guys play at our wedding on Saturday. Can't thank them enough, they were incredible. The feedback we have had from our guests has been amazing. Thank you Sye and the team. Would highly recommend anyone to book you. You had everyone up dancing all night. Once again thank you! Big love.”The Jacksons - Wedding, The Cranberries Hideaway, Axminster
“My new wife and I could not have wished for a better band than One Soul to perform at our wedding. We were (and so were many of our guests) completely blown away by the professionalism, sheer quality of musicianship and total knack for knowing exactly the right songs to keep everyone up dancing ALL NIGHT!
They were the perfect end to a perfect day! Being a busy gigging musician myself and with many friends and family being musicians too, the bar was always going to be pretty high. What can I say, not only did they far surpass the bar they set a whole new one! I can only give Sye the utmost respect for delivering an amazing band, let alone with only 3 weeks notice (the original band we had booked cancelled on us). I would book this band again in a heartbeat! Just brilliant. Could not recommend them enough!”Jas & Sarah Morris - Wedding, Private Residence, Woodbury Salterton
I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that? Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.
Do you take requests? We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.
How long do you take to set-up? 60 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.
What time do you play? At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
How long do you play for? We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception? Although we do not provide any additional sets for drinks receptions, we highly recommend the soloists featured on the Tailored Entertainment website: https://www.tailored-entertainment.com/soloists-duos
What is the difference between the ‘pre-mixed DJ service’ that comes with the standard package and the 'band member to DJ live' which is an optional extra? The pre-mixed DJ service is where the band put on a bespoke playlist (you can request up to 30 songs in advance for this) through the PA before and after their live sets. We do this at most events and it works great - the volume of the music would be the same as if you had a DJ.
If you upgrade to the live DJ service, you can still send over preferences in advance, but you will also have a band member selecting and mixing tracks live on the night, as well as taking requests. The DJ will be happy to make important announcements but they will not talk constantly over or between tracks (that's just not our style!). We also think it's important to say that the DJ won't have a separate DJ booth - they will set up in an appropriate space (ideally to the side of the stage) and the PA/lighting will be the same as what is being used by the band.
Do you have your own PA and lighting? Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
What is the website guide price based on? The published guide price is based on our 4-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Devon. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hour drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that? Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment? Yes.
Will you perform our first dance? Yes, as long as we have three weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.
How much space do you require? We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.
How much power do you require? 2 x 13-amp sockets are fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks? The band's standard rider is for a hot meal and soft drinks for the band members or a £25 pp rider buyout.
Can we see you play live before booking? As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
“Cannot recommend this band enough!! Seen them twice... they stole the show both times. Absolutely nailed it on the night!! Can't speak highly enough of Tailored Ents. Thoroughly professional!”Gary - Birthday Party, Essex
