Book with confidence! After events, we ask our clients what they thought of our acts. We publish what they say here, so you can read genuine, unbiased feedback before booking.

“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, December 2018

“The band were absolutely brilliant and the vocals from the girls were just sensational! I would re-book this band in a heart beat.”

Peter & Alison, Wedding at The Three Acres in Huddersfield, August 2018

“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 in Warwickshire, June 2018

“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 in Guildford, April 2018

“Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Saturday night. You guys were brilliant and everybody has said that the band was fantastic! Thanks for a great night - the music really made it.”

Laura, 21st Birthday Party in Birmingham, January 2018

“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 & Caroline, Wedding in West Yorkshire, September 2017

“Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Saturday night. You guys were brilliant and everybody has said that the band was fantastic! Thanks for a great night - the music really made it.”

Laura, 30th Birthday in Yorkshire, August 2017

“Before they finished the first song everyone in the room was dancing!”

Simon, Wedding in Leicestershire, July 2017

“Having spent many hours trawling through countless agencies searching for a 'affordable quality' band for our sailing clubs centenary ball in June, 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!”

Nicki, Sailing Club Ball in Hampshire, June 2017

“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 in Yorkshire, April 2017

“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. They were so great, easy to get hold of and very happy to learn our first dance!”

Abbie and Mark, Wedding, Yorkshire

“Excellent musicians, fantastic performance.”

Danny, LCM lecturer attending Leeds Showcase, May 2016

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

Mala, Corporate Event in 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 in York, August 2016

“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 in Clitheroe, July 2016

“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 in Leeds, April 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!!”
