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.

“All our family and friends absolutely LOVED you! So many guests have come up to me saying how good you were. Your song choices were great and you really did get everyone on the dance floor. You arrived with loads of time to spare and even kindly let us use some of your equipment. Everything was so well prepared and I am just so glad we booked you!”

Danny, Wedding, Wiltshire, May 2019

“Perfect from booking to the final song from the band. Everyone I dealt with was beyond professional. The band set up and sound checked super discreetly and when it came to the performance, they were AMAZING! What felt like all our guests said how great the band were. Talented musicians who really know how to engage the audience. I spent nearly a month choosing a band for our wedding and I'm so pleased at the decision we made. Soul Circus were more than we could of ever hoped for.”

Chris, Wedding at Harry Warren House, Dorset, July 2018

“Getting the band right for your wedding is a huge thing and with this band, we were not disappointed. They were above and beyond any and all expectations that we had. Their videos don't do them justice as they are even better live! They also have a great band personality, bringing huge energy to their whole performance and had every single person on their feet the whole way through. The best music choices that appealed to everyone were performed at the highest level with astounding vocals and soulful instrumentation.”

Adam, Wedding, Aberystwyth, April 2018

“We along with our guests thought you were absolutely brilliant, we had so many positive comments the next day from relatives/friends! We were a bit concerned about people not getting up to dance (as this has happened at other weddings we've been to before), but we knew straight away that this would not be a problem as we could see how much everyone was enjoying themselves and we could tell that you were feeding off this too. Overall it was a great night and we cannot recommend you highly enough!”

Mr & Mrs Amos, Wedding, Newquay, April 2018

“Thank you for being so amazing! All our guests have said how amazing you were. An extra special thank you for learning our first dance, you played it so well and it meant the world to us. It was honestly one of the most emotional moments of the entire day so thank you so much.”

Leo, Wedding, Gloucestershire

“Soul Circus were excellent performers and put on quite a show at our wedding. All the guests have been telling us how good the band was and that they were great at getting the party started. Our original wedding band had let us down so we wanted to be sure that we had hired a quality band with good professionals. When booked we were sent a DVD of some of their performances so we went to see them perform live. Seeing them perform live convinced us to go for the 7 piece (2 singers and brass added) for our wedding day. We were not disappointed and would definitely recommend Soul Circus to anyone having a wedding. Amazing voices, amazing musicianship and amazing band!”

Mr & Mrs Harding, Newquay, April 2018

“The band were just amazing - thanks so much to all of you. Loads of people said you were the best band they had seen, and the vibe on the dance floor was just electric all night. Cannot thank you all enough!”

Annie, Wedding, Salisbury, July 2017

“Thanks so much to everyone in Soul Circus for 2 fantastic concerts. Everyone at the Babbacombe Festival Marquee were delighted to have you play and both of our events were a wonderful success because of you. The Festival Marquee was buzzing when you played and we so appreciated both the wonderful music and also how easy it was to liaise with you in the run up to the events. Thanks so much guys, you were fab!”

Event Organiser, Babbacombe Festival, Torquay, June 2017

“Thank you so much for such an incredible performance at our wedding. Everyone absolutely loved you and we had so many comments on how great you were... I wouldn't be surprised if you get some enquiries as a result of doing such a fab job!”

Richard, Wedding, Bristol

“Soul Circus were even better than we could have imagined. We were so chuffed with their performance and they really did get everyone up and dancing all night long. We couldn't have picked a better band to make our night.”

Neil, Wedding, Sout Milton, May 2017

“The band were fantastic and we are so glad we booked them for our special day. Many of our guests commented on how brilliant they were and asked for the name of the band. We explained that for two of our guests it was their birthday and they sang live a happy birthday to them which they loved! We cannot think of anything remotely negative to say about the band apart from we wish we could have heard them all night! Fantastic band - would recommend highly!”

Mrs O' Dwyer, Haselbury Hill, March 2017

“The response to you guys was incredible and absolutely everyone was loving it, especially the F & B manager and that is really saying something!”

Joseph, Hotel Residency, Abu Dhabi, UAE

“Soul Circus were amazing! They did exactly what I asked them to (just started playing when they were ready since we didn't want a first dance and didn't play any of the songs I requested they didn't). They were friendly and polite, weren't demanding or diva-ish and people couldn't stop telling me how wonderful they were. Several of my friends who are getting married in the future asked where I got them from. The actual quality of the band was awesome, every song was one I love and it's just a shame the evening went so fast cos I could have listened and danced to so much more. I think everyone was sad when it was finally over!”
