Testimonial icon.png


I know I thanked you on the night but just wanted to do so again in the cold light of day. You and your band were fantastic, not just brilliant at the music but also lovely, helpful and a total pleasure to work with. Thank you so much and please pass my thanks on to your team. My Mother literally had the party of her life and you were a big part of that.... you were exceptional.

Deborah Meaden (Dragons' Den), Private Party

The band were absolutely amazing. Everyone is talking about how great you were. I can't believe how much energy you all put in- even at nearly midnight after two sets with barely a break as far as I recall! You had some of my grumpiest guests up and dancing - and the whole wedding party was humming New York, New York at brunch on Sunday. Please, please pass my thanks to all the band members/ forward the email. I would highly recommend you to anyone planning an event, both for your professional and friendly service, and for your outstanding performance.

Becky Dobra, Wedding Reception, Hatfield House, October 2016

The band were absolutely fantastic. During the set up on the day they were punctual and professional, and they were totally accommodating to our wacky requests (processional music down a field). The music was exceptional - they're experts at reading the 'mood' of the room and got everyone up on their feet dancing. So many of the guests came up to us afterwards to tell us how good they were. I couldn't recommend the band more highly.

Wow - Soul Jive blew us away. We couldn’t have asked for more on our wedding day!

Before the wedding we had lots of ideas on how we wanted to include live music. Mike couldn't have been more helpful, finding a way to incorporate everything we wanted - including a last minute request of 'Stand by Me' in the church and roaming musicians outside during the reception canapes! Mike created a number of custom orchestrations for us, including our first dance to ‘Something Beautiful’.

The live music helped set the tone for a perfect day. We had the string quartet and vocalist at the church, which was stunningly beautiful and very emotional, a roaming trio during canapés at the reception to get everyone in the party mood and a 10 piece band for the evening reception to keep everyone on the dance floor all night. We originally booked Soul Jive as they promised to have all our guests on the dance floor all night - they did not disappoint! Many of our guests commented afterwards that they’d never danced so much at a wedding!

We had so many compliments from our guests about the band. All of the music throughout the day took our breath away. Soul Jive made our day so special, we really can't recommend them highly enough.

Ailsa and Will, Wedding Reception, Surrey
