Soul Hop is a group of extremely talented musicians bringing the best hiphop, RnB, pop, soul and Motown party music to stages and dance floors up and down the UK. With 2 high quality female vocalists, Claire and Emma, together with Andrew's rapping skills, Soul Hop will win you and all of your guests round from the first song.
Andrew has opened for acts like Skepta and Wiley, and is our much-loved Brit rapper, when he’s not rapping he’s on his keys jamming along with the band. Claire and Emma who frequently flex their vocal chords together with a choir group who have gone on tour with Peter Andre, Beverly Knight, The Feeling, Josh Groban, and Jamie Cullum.
Collectively the band have all studied at some of the most prestigious musical educational facilities in the UK, including Brit School, the British Institute of Modern Music, and the British Academy of New Music; have played with the likes of Emeli Sande, Ellie Goulding, Little Mix, Imelda May, David Stewart (Eurythmics), Lenny Henry and Mollie King (of The Saturdays); have supported Robbie Williams, Rudimental, and Ronan Keating; have performed at Isle of White Festival, Newquay Beach Break Festival, The Full Ponty, GuilFest, Evolution Festival, SXSW Festival, and Notting Hill Carnival; toured the UK, Europe, and USA; have played at the renowned 100 Club, O2 Arena, O2 Islington, Jazz Café, and Versuz (one of Europe’s largest nightclubs); and have played on Capital FM. I think you’ll agree that they've more than earned their stripes.
Claire and Emma lead the way in Soul Hop as they belt out the band's pop, funk and soul repertoire, from artists such as Beyonce, Aretha Franklin, and Bruno Mars. The band has a repertoire of over 700 songs covering the 1950s to the current top 40, and specializes in hiphop, RnB, soul, pop and Motown, though their repertoire also covers funk, rock, jazz, disco, gospel, swing, blues, Jewish as well as Christmas and Halloween genres!
