We booked the Soultanas to play our wedding in May 2014. We could not recommend them highly enough. Music is our shared interest and we love to dance and party with our friends so there was a lot of pressure for us when getting the music right. All our guests, from granddads and uncles to nieces, were dancing the night away.
Soul and funk music is a genre we love and accessible for almost everybody. On our request The Soutanas learnt our favourite song for our first dance: "Thinking of You" by Sister Sledge. Our first dance was one of our favourite parts of the day. Prior to the wedding day they sent us their set list which helped us plan for the DJ that followed, they were also really receptive for sharing preferences for songs to play.
On the day you wouldn't have known they were there setting up. They were so professional, liaising directly with the venue and did not bother us at all on the day. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special, we hoped you enjoyed playing as much as we enjoyed listening. We wish we could go back and do it all again!
I booked these guys for my Grease themed night as part of Doncaster's official fancy dress party. They were amazing, everyone was dancing from start to finish, perfect.
Tips on choosing a perfect swing band in Leeds
If you're looking to hire a Swing Band for your wedding, corporate or private celebration in Leeds, take a look at our extensive catalogue to find the best option for your event. You can filter Swing Bands by price and location, and compare reviews, images and videos to help you make the right choice. When choosing a Live music band it's important to consider:
Music played at the right volume creates a fun and exciting atmosphere for guests as they mingle with each other and network. The presence of a professional swing band makes your guests appreciate the fact that you took some time to find the ideal musical group. The entertainment provided by a live band is not comparable to hiring a DJ. This is one of the main reasons why most people resort to hiring swing bands in Leeds. Below are a few useful tips that guide you through the process of hiring the right band.
First and foremost, hire a highly reputable band to perform at your function. Many musicians nowadays find it rather easy to create a website just to make it appear as though they are professionals. However, the precise atmosphere you need a band to create can only be pulled off by a reputable band. A less experienced band is likely to disappoint you.
Remember, song selection is the key to having a perfect atmosphere. While planning a cocktail reception, a wedding, or corporate reception, choose a swing band that can create a fun and exciting environment for your guests. With this type of music, your guests can mingle and network while listening to soothing music playing in the background.
Listen to a jazz band perform before making a hire decision. This is an excellent way of assessing their level of skill. Furthermore, you can also determine whether their style suits your specific requirements. However, if it is not possible to watch the band perform live, you can request to be provided with a video recording.
Prior to hiring swing bands in Leeds, enquire whether your preferred band is comfortable playing your favourite jazz songs. Most bands will allow you to make a few song selections. These few tips will guide you through the process of hiring a suitable swing band.
