'B' CATALOGUE

Songs from the ‘B’ repertoire are back catalogue and exist as spares. We have these in case a client particularly wants a song that is special to them played at their event. A lot of these songs either don’t work as well live as they sound on the original, don’t get the crowd going, or they simply don’t suit the sound we like to bring to the masses!

*Please note that whilst the entire back catalogue is in the Soho repertoire, our ‘A’ Repertoire is performed much more regularly than others and therefore advance notice should therefore be given for specific requests. We’d also ask that any requests from the back catalogue are limited as too many can hinder the quality of the set.

“We had Soho Collective at our wedding, and it was the most fantastic band we could have ever imagined. A set list perfectly designed to keep guests jumping on the dance floor, wonderful communication in the lead up to the wedding and everything in place so my husband and I didn't have to worry about anything at all on the day. Soho Collective is the only band you should consider hiring for your event! I will be looking out for every gig they play in the future, and be recommending them to everyone who's looking for a band for Christmas parties, Weddings, Anniversaries and Events.

“These guys performed at our wedding as a 9-piece, where we happened to have a large number of serious musicians as guests! They were simply superb. The pre-wedding discussions about the playlist sets were easy and detailed, and they performed every song as requested. Soul, funk, jazz, disco, house, all "floor-fillers" impeccably delivered with a great ambiance and connection with the audience. Very impressive, and would def recommend them (and book them again!).”

Everyone asked us about the band and commented on how good they were. Also, the lights were perfect! Please convey our thanks to Grace, Laura and the rest of the band.

FAQ

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 soul and motown classics and current chart hits too, 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?

60-90 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?

Yes - we can provide a 1 x 60 minute live lounge-style trio set (female & male vocals, accompanied by piano) or a 60 minute solo piano set, as add-ons, which are perfect for during drinks or dinner.

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 8-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in London. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. We're a VAT-registered act and the guide price is inclusive of VAT. 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 four 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 3m x 5m.

How much power do you require?

4 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?

Our standard rider is for hot meal and soft drinks for the band members and sound engineer, although if preferred we can offer a £15pp 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.

“We had Soho Collective at our wedding, and it was the most fantastic band we could have ever imagined. A set list perfectly designed to keep guests jumping on the dance floor, wonderful communication in the lead up to the wedding and everything in place so my husband and I didn't have to worry about anything at all on the day. Soho Collective is the only band you should consider hiring for your event! I will be looking out for every gig they play in the future, and be recommending them to everyone who's looking for a band for Christmas parties, Weddings, Anniversaries and Events. If you could give them 10 stars, I would.”

“The band delivered everything we asked for! The set list was tailored to suit our guest list and had everyone up on the dance floor most of the evening. Glad we opted for the additional instruments (in particular sax) as everyone commented how beautiful the music was. Would highly recommend for any occasion!”

“Soho Collective played at our wedding party and did an amazing job helping to make it a night to remember. They got everyone on to the dance floor with a great selection of classic and modern songs with something in there for everyone. They are all incredible musicians and great personalities on stage. Everybody was buzzing; a great band. Thank you so much.”

“I used the London party band for my husband's 30th and I couldn't be happier! They were extremely professional and accommodating and even learnt a couple of new songs, which were my husbands all time favourites. They were very punctual and extremely friendly and have such a great energy. On the night they were excellent and created such a fun atmosphere and everyone loved it - will definitely recommend them for a fun vibe for any party.”

“These guys performed at our wedding as a 9-piece, where we happened to have a large number of serious musicians as guests! They were simply superb. The pre-wedding discussions about the playlist sets were easy and detailed, and they performed every song as requested. Soul, funk, jazz, disco, house, all "floor-fillers" impeccably delivered with a great ambiance and connection with the audience. Very impressive, and would def recommend them (and book them again!).”

“I just wanted to write to say that the band absolutely nailed it last Saturday. They killed the first song, everyone loved the energy, the set list was perfect (you were right about the teenage boy medley, that got all the 20-35 year old boy cousins raging). We had so much fun. Everyone asked us about the band and commented on how good they were. Also, the lights were perfect! Please convey our thanks to Grace, Laura and the rest of the band. And thank you for all the coordination and support over the past few months. Happy new year!”

FAQ

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 soul and motown classics and current chart hits too, 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?

60-90 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?

Yes - we can provide a 1 x 60 minute live lounge-style trio set (female & male vocals, accompanied by piano) or a 60 minute solo piano set, as add-ons, which are perfect for during drinks or dinner.

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 8-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in London. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. We're a VAT-registered act and the guide price is inclusive of VAT. 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 four 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 3m x 5m.

How much power do you require?

4 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?

Our standard rider is for hot meal and soft drinks for the band members and sound engineer, although if preferred we can offer a £15pp 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.
