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 thank you very much for making the evening such an enjoyable one for all. With kindest regards, Theresa

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 couple! Our wedding guests thoroughly enjoyed it and many told us afterwards they were the best wedding band they'd seen. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We booked the Soultanas to play our wedding in May 2014. We could not recommend them highly enough. Music is our shared interest and we love to dance and party with our friends so there was a lot of pressure for us when getting the music right. 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" by Sister Sledge. Our first dance was one of our favourite parts of the day. Prior to the wedding day they sent us their set list which helped us plan for the DJ that followed, they were also really receptive for sharing preferences for songs to play.

On the day you wouldn't have known they were there setting up. They were so professional, liaising directly with the venue and did not bother us at all on the day. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special, we hoped you enjoyed playing as much as we enjoyed listening. We wish we could go back and do it all again!

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 friends are looking to book the band for their own events.

The Soultanas were an absolute hit with us and all of our guests. The sound was incredibly authentic and they brought a fun, energetic and soulful atmosphere that helped make our wedding day truly memorable. The guys were relaxed, friendly and very happy to go with the flow. Their set list was perfect as it got guests of all ages dancing, all night! We couldn't recommend them enough.
