Soul-Motion are a professional and charismatic group who exude sophistication and energy! This exceptionally talented and very flexible band have a huge repertoire and can tailor any performance to an individual client’s needs.

Their songs range from classic music of the 50’s and vintage rat pack to a soul funk pop repertoire including hits from the likes of Nirvana, Meghan Trainor, Oasis, Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, Radiohead, Lady Gaga and lots more! Many arrangements are given a swing twist in a sophisticated Post modern Jukebox style. But if its straight soul funk party you want they’ve got it!

Soul Motion have a large selection of laid back tunes when something more low key is required, as well as their hip up-beat swing tunes that will make you want to put on your spats and tassels and learn to Charleston like it’s 1929.

These outstanding musicians can tailor their performances to the exact needs of any client, performing in a specific style, or creating a varied programme of music through an evening. If you want all the sophistication of Swing music at your event, but want everybody to get down and boogie afterwards, the band can also perform a Soul/Funk set later in the evening (see repertoire).

Their charismatic singers deliver superb performances from mellow jazz through to the most energetic and soulful funk. You can choose to have either male or female singers performing for you or even better… have both! They also feature the funkiest horn section imaginable who will add a massive wow to any event.

Soul-Motion feature a flexible line up, normally performing as a 5 piece, but with additional members up to a full 8 piece band. They come with a male singer as standard but you can request one of their female singers as lead vocalist instead.

DJ music or background music can be played in between their sets, with the option to link your own ipod to their system and put your own playlist on.

Just a quick note to say thank you again for last night’s performance – it was amazing. I loved the way you played to the crowd and sensed what got them up dancing.

Everyone said how amazing you all were and I will be recommending Soul Motion to all!!
Becky, Manager Chichester Yacht Club: Ticketed Event

I was very pleased with how last Saturday went. All the band were friendly, professional and flexible with the timings which was just what we needed. Our guests seemed to really enjoy the mix of music and it is testament to the quality of the band that the dance floor was filled so quickly.
Joanna, Wedding

Can I just say a huge thank you to you all for making our office party such an amazing night. Everyone has commented today on what an entertaining evening it was and how amazing the band were. Once again thank you.
Denise, Wedding

Thank you all so much for helping making the evening at our wedding go so well. You were such a great band and we had numerous friends and family comment on the day and afterwards complementing you guys. We loved our first dance and so did so many of our guests. It worked perfectly and thanks for being flexible with that. The venue milbridge court said that you guys were the best band they’d had!!! It was great to see everyone dancing right to the end. Thanks so much. All the best,
Mr and Mrs Ashley, Wedding

Soul Motion performed recently at our New Years Eve wedding. From our initial introduction the band could not have been more professional. Their planning was meticulous – agreeing arrival and set-up arrangements to accommodate our very specific requirements and suggesting song-by-song playlists for each set -to take our guests from post dinner Swing, to Soul & Pop for the New Year celebrations. The start time went a little awry on the night, which must have been frustrating for the band, but they weren’t fazed in any way and adapted seamlessly with a re-jig of the set structures – our guests of course noticed nothing untoward – and they quickly had the dance floor heaving. The lead singer was amazing, with a fantastic range that particularly did the classic swing numbers proud – and also looking fabulous in a shimmering evening gown (the guys were dressed perfectly for the occasion too!). We would recommend Soul Motion to anyone – you will not be disappointed.

Joanna Nixon, Manager: Gatton Manor Hotel, Ticketed event

I just wanted to say a belated big thank to you and the band for being so fantastic at our wedding on the 6th August at Nymans. We were really looking forward to your performance and for our guests to experience you…and you guys didn’t disappoint! The dancefloor was packed for both your sets (particularly the funk and soul…so much so that a few guests even got bumped off the dancefloor due to lack of space), and several people said they had never seen a dancefloor so popular and busy at a wedding before. We had so many compliments about you from guests that loved your music and style, and the band perfectly suited our reception and ensured that our wedding ended on the right note (pun intended). 

I also wanted to say a personal thank you to you for being flexible and easy going on the day, such as pushing times back etc as we were running slightly behind, setting up the PA so we could do the speeches (and my rap), and staying on till the end so we could use your speakers for the final iPod set. It all contributed to a smoother and less stressful experience. Katie and I had a wonderful day, and we luckily managed to spend most of the evening on the dancefloor enjoying ourselves, as I know many couples often miss out on this as they’re talking to people. Our motto was if you want to talk to us, you’ll find us on the dancefloor.
Nick & Katie, Nymans Gardens

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your band for making our day yesterday so perfect! I can’t tell you how many of our guests said how much they loved you all. Everything you did was so perfect and I genuinely can’t thank you enough for being so wonderful!
Nicola, Wedding, Cowdray Walled Garden

I‘m just writing to you and the rest of the band on behalf of all my family and friends to say a massive thank you for the most amazing night we’ve had in a long while! People had travelled from quite a distance to come to the party and they were not let down – the atmosphere was electric and that’s all thanks to you guys! It will not be forgotten in a hurry! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect night! Thanks again!
Family Party / Niki Davison: Watford Hilton

Wow! What a band and what a night. You were all fabulous! Nobody wanted you to stop and thank you for keeping going as long as you did. Please send all my all love and thanks to everybody.
Birthday Party / Fern Britton: Private venue

Hi there, Just wanted to say a big thank you to the guys who played at our wedding. Russ and I were very excited about having a live band at our wedding as it was kind of our gift to each other. And despite these high expectations we weren’t disappointed!

We weren’t actually sure if our guests would be excited about the kind of band we’d booked, but as I mentioned, our original motivation was a selfish one as we loved the idea of having an amazing band play during our wedding meal. But everyone raved about you! You guys turned out to be the “wow factor” at our wedding and we are so pleased we splashed out on you!

Thank you so much for making a perfect day even more special. You were a very classy addition to our wedding day.
Wedding / Paulette and Russell: Private Venue

I would just like to say again thank you very much for a fantastic performance. You were all fantastic and so many people loved you. So many compliments I couldn’t keep up. You really made the evening and again THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
Emma, Event Organiser: Bullet Ball, Millenium Mafair

I think there are two things that make the band a must see: the repertoire and the quality of the players. Journeying through guitar and vocal ballads, historic jazz standards, quintet blues and finishing up at Oasis is what I call getting my moneys worth. And the fact that every member of the band can deliver a first class solo is unbelievable. Frankly, I think you’re pretty unique as an ensemble. All in all, damn good reasons to see you all having a lot of fun!
Graham: Chequermead Theatre

The 6th of May seems a little while ago now, but we had the most fabulous day and the crowning glory was your band in the evening.
Lucinda and Giancarlo / Wedding: Hilton

Our aim was to find a band whose repertoire would transcend the cultures and ages of the guests, which yours achieved effortlessly. The musical arrangement for the night was perfect. We have received wonderful compliments from many guests who enjoyed the energy of the performance through to those who were enjoying the exceptional musical quality. The italians wer thrilled and very impressed with your performance of ‘Tu vuo fa l’americano’. Two aspiring bass players very much enjoyed ‘The chicken’. We were of course delighted with your flawless performance of ‘Beyond the sea’ for our first dance.  Finally  I wanted to say a big thank you for playing ‘Happy Birthday’ for my father at the end of the evening. It was a wonderful touch and very kind of you. 

In short, you made our evening into a perfect reception. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Brighton Metropole

Just a quick note to thank you and the band for the brilliant performance at our wedding on the 27th May. Everyone really enjoyed the music and commented on how great a voice your singer had and how well the band played. Although I didn’t get to hear the entire set as a result of having to rush around saying hello to all our guests, the mix of songs was just what we had anticipated and fitted perfectly with the balmy evening we were so lucky to enjoy.
Wedding / Zoe and Jim: Sussex University

I just wanted to say thanks for the great music your band provided at the wedding. It was precisely what I’d wanted for the occasion and I’ve had many positive comments about your music from people who were at the evening bash. I particularly wanted to thank you for playing the song “Almost like being in love”. You played a great version which defied the fact that I’d only asked if you knew it a week before hand! Thanks once again, and I hope you and your band enjoyed playing for us”
