The Soul Cats’ performances combine infectious energy, stage presence and audience interaction and are always guaranteed to get people dancing!

They have a varied song list of danceable soul, Motown and pop covers by the likes of Aretha Franklin, James Brown and Michael Jackson. So as to not leave anyone out, they also include the odd rock song by artists such as Elvis and The Kings of Leon, for good measure!

The band were fantastic, excellent musicians, picked a great set list and put on a wonderful show. Everyone, young and old alike had a great night dancing away! Robert, Wedding, London

The band comprise some of the most in-demand session players on the London scene who have played alongside major touring and recordings artists including Will Young, Noah and the Whale and Incognito. Previous clients include City Hall for The Mayor of London, HSBC Headquarters in Canary Wharf, The Royal Academy of Arts and The British Council in addition to hundreds of private weddings and parties.

The Soul Cats can be booked in varying line-ups of between five and nine musicians, depending on your budget and requirements (see booking options below). We’ve enjoyed working with The Soul Cats for many years now and we feel that they rival bands at double the price!

“To all of the Soul Cats band, thank you so much for creating an atmosphere we could only have dreamt of - you really did make our day! All our guests commented on how incredible you all were and lots of people have asked for your details!”

Hannah & Alex, Wedding in Oxfordshire, June 2018

“The band were fantastic, excellent musicians, 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.”

Robert, Wedding in London, June 2018

“The Soul Cats were wonderfully talented and got everyone dancing. They really added to the already special evening!!”

Rebekah, Birthday Party in London, March 2018

“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 in Essex, December 2017

“We were amazed how incredible The Soul Cats' performance at our wedding was. They were all so friendly and professional and they managed to get all our guests up and dancing. They were accommodating and made sure it was a completely tailored service. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!”

Helen, Wedding in West Sussex, August 2017

“The agency were really easy to work with, but oh my gosh the band were INCREDIBLE. Book this band you will not be disappointed, worth every penny. I booked a male and a female singer and they were both incredible, at one point they came and played and sang to us on the dance floor, the whole band were just amazing.”

Katie, Wedding at Marlston house, Berkshire, July 2017

“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!”

Spencer, Wedding in London, October 2016

“The Soul Cats were great - couldn't have been happier with them. They brought just the right vibe, were really tight and had everyone on the dance floor!”

Will, Wedding in London, September 2016

“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!”

Ben & Charlotte, Wedding in the Cotswolds, September 2016

“The music was great and the musicians were brilliant. They were also very friendly and professional, and they tried really hard to give us exactly what we wanted!”

Sara-Jane, Wedding Anniversary in Dunmow, August 2016

“The band were exactly what we wanted, and we enjoyed dancing the night away! Extremely talented and professional throughout, highly recommended!”
