We are a five piece Soul band based in London. We have played hundreds of weddings and functions across the UK since 2004 and have an unrivalled repertoire of soul, disco, Motown and funk classics from the sixties to the present day. The core band consists of the amazing lead vocalist, Sheila Nelson and the funky foursome- James (Guitar), Rich (Keyboards), Spy (Bass) and Mark (Drums). James, Rich and Spy also perform backing vocals to create an authentic Soul and Motown vibe. We come insured with a fully self-contained PA and lighting rig. We play 100% live with no backing tracks in sight! All members of the band each have decades of gigging experience and have played with some of the biggest names in the Soul, Ska and Reggae scenes including Desmond Dekker, Dawn Penn and Geno Washington. We are also available as a seven piece outfit with two part all-female brass section.

I booked Sou’d Up after seeing them perform at a New Years Eve party at a Surrey pub in Dec 2019. Our group of friends danced all night long to Soul’d Up’s amazing renditions of soul and funk classics. It was like listening to the original recordings but performed live and I realised this was not just another pub band! I spoke briefly to a couple of the musicians and I was told stories about famous artists they had played with previously. I asked for a card because I knew that when I retired I wanted this band to play at my party. I thought I had just met the Wrecking Crew! Two and a half years later I finally retired and booked Soul’d Up (the bands name being very apt too!) They played at my private party in a Surrey pub garden and 60 guests were absolutely blown away by the sounds. The pub management were also blown away asking for the bands contact details saying it was the best they had ever seen there! What more can I say? Richard, Spy, Ollie, Mark and vocalist Sheila are amazing and I would not hesitate in recommending them! 11/10
