“The band was amazing - definitely the highlight of the reception. Our guests were absolutely blown away by their song choice, energy, and talent, and we really appreciated them learning two songs just for us, our first dance song and “Africa” by Toto. The second one filled the dance floor and was a massive hit. The band are all top notch entertainers and we’ll recommend them to all our friends (in fact, some friends who have posted clips from the night on their Instagram stories were asked, “Wow, what’s the name of that band?” Don’t worry, we told them). Thank you for making our wedding so special!”

“The day was so perfect and we loved every minute. It was such a pleasure to have everyone together in one place, especially considering the last year - we felt there was such a sense of relief and happiness. We have had a brilliant time this week on our mini-moon reminiscing about it all and trying to piece the night together. The band of course more than added to this - they were AMAZING! The voices of the two singers were incredible as well as all the backing band too. Equally, their performance of our first dance song was spot on and we thought they absolutely did it justice and made it so easy to dance to. We couldn't have been more pleased with them and everyone commented on how amazing the band were.

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.

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!).”

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?

120 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 for our wedding in July and we were beyond impressed. All our guests have commented on how good the band were at getting everyone up and dancing and also sounded fantastic! We loved working with Joe, choosing the set list and looking at all of their medleys. On the day, the band were happy to work with the venue to get set up and packed down discreetly which was great. Their 2 sets were the perfect amount of time and there were songs for everyone in there. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, We will most definitely be recommending you to friends. Thanks again!”

“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!”

“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?

120 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.
