The Soul Searchers

Recent review: 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.

What event planners say about our suppliers


Joe, top night everyone enjoyed it, thanks again.


Thank you guys for playing at our Wedding, you were simply amazing. All our guests loved it and keep talking about how "the band" made the reception. Right from the very first stages of talking about booking you through to the day itself, you made the whole experience so easy for us and we were so grateful for the meeting at the venue prior to our big day to go over the final details. Thanks again and we can't wait to see you guys again soon!







How to choose a Soul & Motown Band in Manchester for your event



If you're looking to hire a Soul & Motown Band for your wedding, corporate or private celebration in Manchester, take a look at our extensive catalogue to find the best option for your event. You can filter Soul & Motown 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:

Similar to a jazz band, a soul band is a great option for an event planner that is looking to tone down the energy levels and place more of a focus on the mood of the event. Soul bands usually have a heavy vocal presence so if you are looking for more instrumental involvement, then a soul band may not be for you. On the other hand, if you want a band that has the ability to showcase vocal talent as well as sing powerful ballads to your guests, then the soul band is a perfect fit.

So, there is the run down of live music bands to choose from for your event. Each band brings something different to the table and depending on what you want to get out of your event, there are varying options. Whether it is the slow, even-tempered feel of a jazz band’s presence, the up-tempo energy of a swing band, the personal nature of the cover band and their willingness to hear guest requests, or anything else provided in the vast landscape of live music bands, there is definitely the right fit for your event out there in Manchester. There are various resources that can connect you with the bend members themselves so if you need live music bands for your events, the right selection is just a phone call or an email away.
