Capital Soul are a slick, stylish and versatile Leeds band who specialise in dance-along funk, soul and pop. Their innovative versions of classic tunes, energetic female lead vocals and optional two-piece brass section make them one of our most popular bands, guaranteed to get the whole room moving before the end of the first song. They love adding new genres and amalgamations of styles to their repertoire, and will usually be able to perform any first dance or special song you request with a bit of notice. They can also provide a cocktail pianist and a jazz band.

The musicians were handpicked from Leeds College of Music for their virtuosity and talent for performance, and began by building themselves a funky reputation on the live music scene in Leeds. After achieving outstanding marks in their performance exams and graduating with first-class honors, they went on to receive numerous awards and record for renowned producers and major labels. Their bass player plays with the EMI-signed artist Ashley Hicklin; their singer was a finalist for the 2009 Northern Ireland Eurovision entry; and their drummer plays with hotly tipped indie band Sketches, who have celebrity fans in Johnny Marr, The Cribs and Madness.

The band’s perfect harmonies, seamless arrangements and extremely funky playing keep them busy: as well as being one of our most popular wedding bands in Leeds and Yorkshire, they've performed at countless weddings, parties and corporate events including Harlaxton Manor, Knowsley Hall, Aldwark Manor Hotel and The Chevin Country Park Hotel.

For Jewish weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs etc, the band can add a specialist set of Jewish music adding an extra male vocalist who is fluent in Hebrew, singing traditional favourites including Hava Nagila and Moshiach, amongst others.

For larger events the band can hire in a larger PA, professional staging and lighting. Please enquire for details.

What people say Help

  • The band were great. Very professional and amazing singers. The crowd loved them and the atmosphere was brilliant!

    Mala, Corporate event, Leeds, December 2016
  • We were extremely satisfied with the band, they were friendly and professional from start to finish. We were blown away with the quality of music and lots of our guests commented on how good they were. They created a great atmosphere on the dance floor, much better than just having a DJ. Booking this band was one of the best decisions we made, absolutely worth every penny. Thankyou for helping to make our wedding day so perfect!

    Adam & Diana , Wedding, York, August 2016
  • I'd like to say a huge thank you to Capital Soul! They were amazing and really made our wedding go with a huge swing! Their great set kept the dance floor packed all night and all our guests commented on how great the band were. Our day wouldn't have been the same without them! So many happy memories!!

    Alex, Wedding, Leeds, February 2015
  • Capital Soul were amazing. Polite, friendly, and great live musicians. Our guests loved the band and selection of songs they chose. Wish we could get married all over again so we could re-book them. They all did a fantastic job an amazing night. Thank you so much.

    Clee, Wedding, Clitheroe, February 2014
  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank the band for such a fantastic performance. Live music can make or break an event and it’s essential to choose the right band. From the Bride, Groom and the guests’ point of view the band were spot on, with the right mixture of music and a great style. My professional point of view, from the initial booking of the band through the agency until the end of the bands performance; both were a pleasure to work with, all extremely professional and friendly at all times.

    Emma, Wedding, Leeds, April 2013
  • Capital Soul were the ideal band for our Saltaire Festival Silver Ball - they had people dancing all night and brought just the right level of fun and glamour to the event. The dance floor was often packed and I had great feedback from a very contented crowd and worn out crowd afterwards.

    Caroline, Corporate Event, Yorkshire
  • To be honest music wasn't initially a priority for our wedding, we knew we wanted a live band but didn’t want to spend too much! When we heard Capital Soul on the day we were just blown away. Their set was just perfect - suited all ages and I (the bride) was up dancing for every song. In particular, we all LOVED the Michael Jackson medley and The Killers to finish off with. We would very much recommend this band for a wedding/party. Dan was so great, easy to get hold of and very happy to learn our first dance!

    Abbie and Mark, Wedding, Yorkshire
  • A great night was had by all... cool music, great band and fab tunes. Highly recommended! Service received was spot on from both the band and the agency... everything ran smoothly and without a hitch! Thanks so much.

    Sarah, Wedding, Warwickshire
  • Capital Soul were completely fantastic at our wedding and literally had people on the dance floor from start to finish. They were incredibly entertaining and built up an immediate rapport with the crowd, and I vaguely recall the lead singer leading a conga style line of 50 people walking past me! I feel we paid a lot for the band but we got so much in return. It was clear, and this was reiterated by several guests who are professional musicians, that these were a talented bunch of people.

    Hedley, Wedding, Guildford
  • I just wanted to drop a line just to congratulate the band. There were definitely one of the highlights of our wedding, with many guests still commenting on how amazing they were - so many have said best band they've heard at a wedding. Our first dance sounded amazing live and their set kept people dancing all night, which was just what we wanted. We would highly recommend them and looking for another excuse to use them in the future!

    Nick, Wedding
  • We booked Capital Soul for our wedding reception last October. They were fantastic! Their repertoire was extensive and they accommodated all our wishes, including the first dance. They were responsive to the level of sound and even worked round my husband’s speech! Many of our friends asked who they were and where they came from. We would certainly book them again. Highly recommended.

    Michael and Caroline, Wedding, West Yorkshire
  • Having spent many hours trawling through countless agencies searching for a 'affordable quality' band for our sailing clubs centenary ball in June 09, we came across Capital Soul via your website. Having found the website itself easy to access and the contact with yourselves, Ali in particular, to be 1st rate, we went ahead with booking Capital Soul. We really thought our chances of securing these guys were slim as i believe they’re based in Yorkshire and we`re down in the Portsmouth area, 7 hrs drive away. However, they were keen enough to do the event and drove all day, arriving just 5 mins after their ETA. From the moment we met them they were enthusiastic and professional. They took to the stage and half way through their 1st song most of our 300 strong crowd were up dancing and by the half way stage, everyone was up. The standard of music was amazing and their obvious enthusiasm was contagious, we soon had a real `party` atmosphere going, not easy when the age group ranged from 18-86 yrs! We could not fault them in any department and Dan,who seemed to be the main contact was so helpful at all times. We just wish we could come up with another reason to hire Capital Soul sooner rather than later!
