From The Four Tops, Lional Ritchie, Stevie Wonder to Artetha Franklin, the brilliant Birmingham based sensation that is Soul Motion are a melting-pot of soul and Motown classics and are the real deal

We're just back from Honeymoon and wanted to say a huge thank you, the band were absolutely amazing from start to finish and we had so many guests saying how fantastic they were. It really made our party having the dance floor full all evening.


From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available on 0800 564 2240 / and will be very happy to hear from you.


Once you have decided that Soul Motion are the band for you, Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the day and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit (£510- £800 depending on which line-up you choose and if you go for any add-ons) to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.


In the lead up to the wedding, you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, first dance, song requests for the disco or DJ, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.


Soul Motion will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music (2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets). The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.

If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!) - it takes a minimum of 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On
  • 20:00 - First Dance/First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
  • 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
  • 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close

Timings are flexible to suit your needs and live sets can be split 3 x 40 mins if you prefer.The standard price for Soul Motion is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.

The band are very happy to perform your choice of first dance for you as long as they have at least three weeks notice of the song choice.

“There isn't much to say other than.....Soul Motion were AMAZING! The absolute life of the party; pure magic and our day wouldn't have been the same without them. When I say our guests didn't want them to finish playing (ourselves very much included!), they REALLY didn't want them to stop...we even had one guest try to pay them more money to keep playing. Utterly fabulous and I imagine there were a lot of sore feet, and tired voices the morning after! Thank you so much for all the help and support in the build-up to our day, and please pass the above message on to the band. After a very hard year for so many, they were effortless in allowing us all to let our hair down and have an incredible time. Myself and Harry will never forget the incredible performance they gave, and we already want to get married all over again, just for the dancing!”
