“Soul Unit were fantastic! We loved the band and the music they played. A number of guests commented on how good the lead singer was and all of our guests enjoyed the music - the dance floor was full all night! The band arrived promptly, set up quickly without interrupting and were ready to play as soon as we were ready. They were laid back and professional, the music was exactly what we wanted - a soulful Motown sound with a mix of some classics and modern tracks. The booking process was simple and efficient and we are so glad we chose Soul Unit to play at our wedding and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them! Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to the band.”Sarah & Nick - Wedding, East Keswick Village Hall
