SALUT formed in 2014 as a funk & soul originals band and quickly had success playing to large crowds at the likes of The Isle Of Wight festival. Their unique energy, showmanship and style soon become noticed by event agents who began to book the band for corporate events. It didn’t take long until word spread to the luxury wedding industry where SALUT have since become one of the most booked international luxury-wedding bands.

There is a huge appeal that you get a real recording band at your wedding and not a random collection of singers and musicians.

I was a bridesmaid at my best friends wedding yesterday, and at the evening reception the soul searchers kept us thoroughly entertained. So much talent in one band. This singing, entertainment and energy was truly outstanding. The female vocalist and saxophone player, I think, blew - everyone away. If you are looking for a high energy, highly talented, fun, genuine band to get your guests up dancing, you definitely won't be disappointed with the soul searchers. Absolutely brilliant.
When I booked Totally Funktional I hadn't seen their performance before and was a little uncertain whether they would sound the same on the night as they did on their YouTube clip. But Wow! They were fantastic. They really impressed us and our guests and made the evening even more special. I would recommend Totally Funktional without hesitation.
