Soul Plated is a funky soulful collective of musicians and singers based out of London (but play extensively all over South England). Soul-Plated love performing all styles of music, from Vintage Swing to 50s Rock n Roll to Disco, Funk, Soul, Motown and Modern Rock, but everything they do is with Soul - Soul is the principle ingredient of every moment of live performance. The other important ingredient is that every member of the band is a singer (lead or backing) so there is a great deal of harmony, variety and vibrancy to their performances.
Soul Plated have played all manner of events and venues from the Coolest Hangouts in Hackney to Major XMAS Merry-Making in Mayfair:) With a repertoire stretching from Swing to Soul to Contemporary RnB and Pop, Soul Plated are the ultimate choice for every kind of special event from wedding to corporate. Most importantly, Soul Plated, as musicians and singers, are all good friends, love what they do and are keen to share the music they love with you on your special day.
