Urban Soul bring Funk, Soul & Disco back to 21st Century - with all of the glam and none of the cheese... Expect to hear your favourite Funk, Soul, Motown and Disco classics by Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Chic, Earth Wind & Fire, Chaka Khan, Prince and Michael Jackson. Not only that, but The Urban Soul bring you bang up to date with more recent hits inspired by these old school legends, with Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Pharell Williams and many more! For those of you looking for something super cool and off the charts, Urban Soul can also perform a number of rare groove, funk, and acid jazz tracks which will keep even the most discerning listener happy!
All of this is presented to you in the unique Urban Soul style with glitz, glam, flair and energy - for a spectacular night that you and your guests will never forget!
Urban Soul have performed at many renowned venues including Blenheim Palace, Emirates Stadium, Madame Tussauds, The London Science Museum, Bush Hall, The Savoy, The Ritz, The Hilton, as well as 100's of wedding venues across the country.
The most popular line up is the 7pc, which is the smallest line up featuring the perfect combination of male & female vocals, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and saxophone. Each of the singers are at the top of their game and know exactly how to get your guests off their seats and onto the dancefloor! Having a male and female vocalist creates a great dynamic on stage, and allows the band to perform the widest variety of genres. If live horns are important to you, we highly recommend adding the trumpet. There is nothing quite like the sound of a live horn section for that full, fat, funk sound, and having 2 horns allows the band to play more of the brass heavy numbers where more than one brass member is essential. For a more tropical edge, why not add some percussion? Bongos and congas are a staple of disco and house music, but percussion is rarely seen on stage these days. So having a live bongo/ conga player is sure to wow your guests, and this gives the band a more authentic disco sound and tropical flavour! For those looking for the ultimate show, the band can complete their line up with an additional female vocalist. Having 3 vocalists allows the band to create luscious vocal harmonies, aswell as perform choreographed moves on stage and really work the dancefloor!
You can also choose extra acoustic performances as a duo or trio in addition to the full band if required. This is a very popular option during the wedding ceremony, drinks reception, or dinner before the party really begins!
Whether you are looking for the ultimate Funk, Soul wedding band or entertainment for your corporate event, you are guaranteed a spectacular performance that you and your guests will never forget.
Included in the package is a top of the range 3000 watt sound system complete with sub woofers, and LED lighting to highlight the stage and light up the dance floor.
Please note: Urban Soul is comprised of a collective of musicians and singers all of the same professional standard. For more information please speak to an Alive Network agent.
