Soneando didn't disappoint - our guests loved the band and they exceeded all our expectations! Dan Pullen, Wedding, London

The band’s obvious love of the music they play is evident in the passionate and exuberant arrangements of both original material and Cuban classics.

“Soneando were absolutely fantastic at the event and really added a touch of wow factor to our 50s Havana themed ball. Sara was in touch well before the event about what we were looking for and delivered on the day beyond what we were expecting. We asked for some dancers to come along to get people in the spirit and learning some simple steps which had everyone on their feet dancing. We've had so many compliments about the band and dancers and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for something a little different.”

Jessica, Inter-Club Ball in St. James', London, September 2017

“The band were very friendly and brilliant! They had people dancing from the first set and the whole room up by the end. Wish it could have gone on all night! Function Central were very accommodating and allowed me to make many last minute changes and updates. No complaints.”

Adam, Birthday Party, London, October 2019

“Absolutely made the night! Fantastic, authentic sound and all very charismatic musicians. We loved it! Thank you!”

Jennifer, Wedding, London, September 2019

“Very happy to recommend Soneando. They set up very swiftly and put on a fantastic show for our clients and guests. Great array on Latin music that really appealed to everyone.”

Paula, Private Event, London, August 2019
