A professional band will be self-contained with a PA and lighting for the performance area. 

Depending on the line-ups, a 4-piece band would need around 4m x 4m. This space is required, for PA equipment, instruments, and any lighting. Check the venue has enough space before booking any Soul band, and 13 amp plug sockets are available to plug in the equipment.

What Is Soul and Funk Music?

Soul and funk music is a genre of black popular music that originated in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It combines elements of rhythm and blues, gospel, and jazz. Funk typically consists of a strong, driving bass line played by an electric bass guitar, drums, and often horns. Soul music often features vocals with a call-and-response pattern.

Funk bands usually have a horn section consisting of trumpets, trombones, and saxophones. The rhythm section is typically made up of an electric bass guitar, drums, and keyboard instruments such as piano or organ. Funk songs are often based on a repetitive groove that is created by the interaction between the instruments in the rhythm section. The lead vocals typically sing the main melody over this groove.

Soul and funk music originated in African American communities in the United States, particularly in the South. African American musicians developed these genres from earlier forms of black popular music such as gospel and rhythm and blues. Funk was strongly influenced by James Brown’s style of soul music, which featured a repeating rhythmic figure known as the “one,” or “the pocket.” Brown’s style was also characterized by its use of syncopated rhythms and call-and-response patterns between the singer and the band.

Hiring a soul and funk band for your perfect party is an ideal way to get the groove going. They will bring a unique vibrancy to the atmosphere with their classic sounds, and you can rest assured that your guests will be having a great time.
