5 stars - The Soul Set are Highly Recommended
booked The Soul Set for their event

“Hi Mike Although two days on I'm still a little delicate from my party which actually ended as the sun came up, I wanted to convey my thanks to you and the band as soon as possible. I think I managed a thank you on the night but I suspect that that was probably more of a drunken slur. So here it is. Thank you! Music is something that is really important in my life and having failed miserably to master the trombone and play jazz, I now find myself listening endlessly to all types of music. Having spent some considerable time selecting your band for the types of music you play and listening to your online music for the right sound, I knew I was going to enjoy hearing you play. I was however a little nervous as to whether everyone else would enjoy my music preferences. I have however been completely blown away by the response. If you ever need a reference all 106 of my guests will provide one as I doubt there is anyone who hasn't raved about your performance. The most common comments are...”

“We booked The Soul Set for one of our high profile corporate clients and they were fantastic. Arrived on time to set up, and worked brilliantly with the venue and AV companies to ensure everything was set and ready to go on time. Mike and the rest of the band were very helpful and went above and beyond. Then there was the performance, they were fantastic, great vocals and top quality musicians provided the perfect backdrop over dinner. I would highly recommend these guys for any corporate or private functions 10/10.”

We couldn’t have asked for a more professional and talented group of musicians

“Dear Mike, I have been meaning to get in touch with you since our party. What can I say. It was superb!!!! Never have I seen so many people on a dance floor at one time but for so long. As far as I could see the only reason anyone came off was to get their breath back for the next stint. It was brilliant and I can only thank my son Henry for finding you on the net. Your singer was wonderful, what energy, you were all brilliant. Many many thanks for making it a wonderful night, despite all the hiccoughs. Kind regards”

Your friendliness and help throughout the whole process was just fantastic.
