I'm so pleased we chose the Soultanas for our wedding in June 2015 - the band were absolutely brilliant. From our first contact in February 2014, through to our wedding day in June 2015, Laurence from the band was fantastic. He has been very professional, accommodating and understanding.
The Soultanas are all fantastic musicians and singers, and played the perfect wedding music to dance to, including a couple of requests. Big thanks to Lauren as well for letting me take over and sing on a cou...

The band kept the dance floor full from first track until the last at our wedding. Thank you guys. They played a mixture of swinging oldies and modern dance numbers to suit all tastes. They fitted their sets around the itinerary perfectly.

Just a note to say how much your music was enjoyed by all at our wdding at Loseley on 6th August. Not only on the day, but afterwards by letter many people expressed their appreciation for such delightful music. People were able to dance or sit at tables and actually talk as the music wasn't too loud. The younger generation commented on it too! The singers were superb.so thank you very much for making the evening such an enjoyable one for all. With kindest regards, Theresa

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" b...

Excellent in every way. They were flexible, friendly and accommodating from the outset regarding our requests. They saved the day as the wedding venue's sound system malfunctioned and the band were very accommodating in helping out. Their sets were perfectly judged both in terms of length and song choice - people were dancing all night long and wouldn't let them go at the end. Many of our guests commented on the band as one of the best wedding bands they'd heard in a while, and I know that some ...
