What people say Help

  • The Soul Expressions performed at my sister’s 30th birthday party and they were absolutely brilliant from start to finish. All the band members were entirely professional and made sure that everything was stress-free for me as the organiser. They arrived early, set up without fuss, made sure my sister was enjoying herself, chatted to guests and got everyone on the dancefloor. In addition to their professionalism, all the band members were really friendly and that made it a really happy and fun occasion. All the guests were hugely impressed and everyone commented afterwards on how amazing they had been. Before the event, Anthony made sure the performance and songs chosen were perfectly suited to our needs and planned it so that everything ran smoothly on the night.

  • The Soul Expressions were fantastic - the perfect thing about the band was that they not only performed an incredible live set, they stayed on to keep the party going with a brilliant DJ set afterwards too! The band allowed us to pick our favourite songs and also let us send over a list of songs (even some garage tunes!) for the DJ set. They created a great atmosphere during their set, the vocals were spot on and one of the lead singers let our flower girl join in to sing part of a Bruno Mars song which made her day! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day and The Soul Expressions definitely played their part in making it so special.
