Fantastic!

The band were fantastic and everyone has commented on how much they enjoyed the music. Rob was so speedy getting back to us and put us at ease about a few things we were anxious about and even guided us through timings on a few other aspects of the day! Can’t recommend enough

Awesome wedding band!

Kings of Soul played our wedding this September, and they were incredible! We had their 7-piece band, who played an excellent mix of songs from the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s and modern. We had several conversations with Rob before the day to run through all the details, which really put us at ease. The band played our first song which was really special, and which they did even though it wasn’t on their set list. They also did a great job of managing the playlist that we put together for the time between the sets. The dance floor was packed throughout the night and we’ve received so many compliments from friends who said it was the best music they’d heard at a wedding. We’d thoroughly recommend having Kings of Soul at your wedding!

The cream of wedding bands!

The Kings of Soul played our wedding in June, and safe to say that they made our night! The guests loved it (with some outside the marquee saying they hadn’t immediately realised the band had started due to them sounding so good!).
Rob who organised the band for me was consummately professional to deal with, coming up with a killer eclectic set list based around what Mia and I wanted.
I would thoroughly recommend these guys for any wedding or event where the aim is for guests to get up and dance to some super music played by incredibly talented musicians.

Totally blew us away!

The Kings of Soul gave us a truly epic wedding party! We had no idea that a wedding band could sound so good. Song selections were a perfect diverse mix and the energy was just out of this world! Rob was so great to deal with - helped us tweak the timings and flow of the day as well as guiding us on first dance ideas. The singers were just out of this world. Wish we could do it all again! Thanks very much! Highly recommended!

The best wedding band out there!

We were recommended Kings of Soul by our friends who got married in 2019 and they were just amazing. From start to finish, Rob was super helpful and flexible. Everyone commented on how amazing the band was and another friend has already asked for their name to use ofr their wedding!

So much fun!

The band were such great fun at our wedding! The show was totally unlike any other wedding band we've seen. Love those medleys and they also played a beautiful first dance for us which was really special. Truly superb musicians and so easy to work with also. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a next level wedding band!

Difficult to describe how good this band is

Rob worked with me very closely on the choice of music, and judiciously combined my suggestions with a holistic set list that absolutely knocked it out of the park. The band even made and performed a new arrangement of our first dance song, Everlasting Love. They fielded a guitar and sax duo during the drinks reception which perfectly complemented the atmosphere. I was recommended this band by a professional musician whose wedding they had also played at. All the arrangements, particularly the medleys, worked incredibly well on the dance floor. Many of our guests remarked that it was the best wedding band they had ever heard. The Kings of Soul’s two sets were a whirlwind of blissful memories with all our friends and family and my wife and I can’t recommend them enough.

Incredible wedding band!

We can't thank Kings of Soul enough for absolutely smashing our wedding! The band were so helpful in the planning stages and tailored the show to our music tastes. The show was so diverse and kept all ages on the dancefloor. The medleys are so great and the musicianship on stage was so impressive. We had just the best time and our friends are still raving about the band. We couldn't recommend more highly!

Fantastic experience with the Kings of Soul

The Kings of Soul performed at our wedding in December. We couldn't have wished for a better band. They were incredible, and created a fabulous atmosphere. Our friends and family just loved them! The dance floor was full the whole night, and so many people who wrote to us afterwards said how great the band was. A couple of the band also played at our reception, and they were perfect.

The band were so supportive in the lead up to the wedding. It was great how they steered us on the set list whilst including us in the process. The Kings of Soul created a really fab party for us, and I really don't think you could find a better band for a wedding/event.

Love them!

Kings of Soul were absolutely amazing at our wedding in October! A definite highlight of the day.

We’ve had so many guests say they’re the best wedding band they’ve ever heard…and we couldn't agree more - the playing, the energy, the vocals, the song selection and the BANGIN' medleys kept the dancefloor full from start to finish, which I think says it all. Would definitely recommend! Thank you so much again!

Truly Phenomenal!

The Kings of Soul were the band for our wedding and were truly phenomenal! I have seen them perform several times, so as soon as I got engaged I knew they were the band for our big day and they did not disappoint! They were so professional to work with and super organised in the run up! Everyone had a fantastic night and the dancefloor was always full - thank you so much!!

Best wedding decision we made!

Kings Of Soul were the best wedding decision we made! Communication with Rob beforehand was easy, they were very professional and most importantly sounded amazing. Their repertoire is diverse and they have so many amazing and cleverly arranged medleys that definitely got everyone on the dance floor and made sure that they stayed there all night! A huge thank you to all of the talented musicians for making it a night to remember 🎵 Sophie & James Baker

A dream to work with!

From start to finish the Kings of soul were truly amazing and a dream to work with. Rob made the planning so easy, he is so friendly & professional, Rob helped us choose which sets to play and also learnt our first dance song which was amazing live and made it really special. Kings of soul were recommended to use by our Event planner but also by friends and family who had seen them live at other peoples wedding and loved them. They have already been booked again by a guest at our wedding as everyone loved them! I would highly recommend booking Kings of soul for your wedding as they were truly amazing and so talented! Every song they played they played it perfectly and got everyone up on the dance floor. They really made our wedding day! Thanks again for everything! You were perfect!
Thanks Becky & Matt x
