What people say Help

  • After much searching, we found the Soul Cats and loved the demos! It's always a gamble choosing a band you've not heard live but I cannot begin to explain how fantastic the Soul Cats are. They were amazing! They had an extensive repertoire which everyone loved, the instrumental arrangements and vocals flawless and their mission was to see people have fun and up dancing! The band members were all highly professional and always happy to answer questions in the run up to the big day.

    We can't thank them enough for making our wedding more than we could have hoped for. You know it's a great wedding when old and young generations dance together and won't stop talking about the fun they had! We will continue to spread the word about how fab these guys are!

  • The Soul Cats were excellent. They created a fabulous atmosphere which all of our guests enjoyed. Perfect song list and really impressed with the one song we requested which was learnt and performed with one weeks notice. I would recommend The Soul Cats to anyone!

    Hollie, Wedding, Kent, July 2016
  • The Soul Cats were amazing. We decided to pay the extra money to have both a male and female singer and it was worth every penny. The female singer was full of energy and got everyone up and dancing. Since the wedding, every one of the guests has commented on how brilliant the band were.

    Sarah, Wedding, Essex, December 2015
  • The band were fantastic, excellent muscians, picked a great set list and put on a wonderful show. Everyone, young and old alike had a great night dancing away, and we got many comments from guests about how great the band were. They also learnt the song we requested as our first dance and performed that very well. They really did cap the end of a perfect day for us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. The band were as good as we hoped they would be and we were delighted we picked them, we'll remember dancing away to their music for a long time to come.
