Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Yes. Our PA system can also be used to patch the clients playlist during breaks and we can make mics available for speeches if required.
Our lighting rig is available to illuminate the band areas and the dance floor. We have additional uplighters for marquees or a dining area as well as the ability to illuminate external features. In all we have 28 seperate programmable LED units with three DMX controllers and all the necessary T-bars, stands and clamps.
What kind of events do you usually serve?
We are primarily a wedding band and have played many of the most well-known venues in the South East including Blenheim Palace and Goodwood House. We have also performed in a marquee in the middle of a field in the Midlands.
What are the highlights of your career?
Each and every wedding or function is a highlight in its own right, whether it's a celebrity "name" or a more intimate and private occasion.
Please, describe your act or business in on sentence:
Soultanas is a nine-piece function band with a repertoire of dance music from the 1960s to the present day.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
We will fit in with the running order of the day. The ideal set length is 50 minutes but we are used to there being some slippage in the timings of even the most meticulously planned occasions. Go with the flow is our watchword!
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
We are always happy to learn and play a couple's choice of First Dance.
How much space do you require?
3m × 8m is perfect but we fit all of us into the available space.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Yes PLI for £5m and PAT certificated equipment.
How long do you play for?
Entirely negotiable - whatever the client wants. For excample, we can offer a set of instrumental music to accompany a reception prior to morphing into a party band for dancing later in the evening.
How can event planners pay for your services?
Via BACS with a deposit to hold the date and the residue on the day itself.
Who are your previous clients?
Generally private hire clients.
What is your competitive advantage (special features)?
We are highly professional, reliable and accommodating and our music is also very good.
