About The Soul Destroyers

13-Piece Soul-Pop-Cheese-Funk Groove Party Band Thang!
Cover band
Public liability insurance of £1 million

More of a tribe than a band, the mighty Soul Destroyers have been playing their mix of cheese tinged, horn driven soul since Adam was a lad. Officially dubbed "the best party band in Bristol", The Soul Destroyers have been bringing the party to the South West for over 30 years with their infamous live shows and their intoxicating energy! A 13 piece line up, with 6 awesome horns, 3 singers and a rock solid rhythm section, it is an unnatural phenomenon of truly awe-inspiring musical power. Expect soul covers from all the usual suspects (Motown, Stax, Atlantic) but don’t be surprised if you end up at some very unexpected musical destinations. Ever noticed how bits of soul classics end up in some unusual contemporary tracks? … well The Soul Destroyers have and they aren’t afraid to take you there! “Best Party Band in Bristol” - Bristol Evening Post/Venue Magazine "Huge - even the bar staff were dancing! - Adhoc Magazine

Please note: this is a sample list for demonstration purposes. A lot of our set is performed as clever medley's and mash-up's of songs, guaranteed to surprise and delight the audience in equal measure! As a result the set cannot be "hand-picked", however if there are particular songs you would like to be included or excluded we can endevour to do so where possible.

Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Wherever possible we will always strive to make the line up as consistent as possible. Naturally, with a 13 piece band we have a small pool of well established "dep" players who will step in if a member falls ill or is unavailable.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line up is largely always the same huge, jam packed party on stage! We don't have an option for a smaller line up, it's all or nothing with The Soul Destroyers!

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We will always try to be flexible to help the event run as smoothly as possible for everyone.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes or if you have a playlist you'd like to provide we can play this too. Note if you would like the music to continue more than 1 hour after the our set has finished there will be an additional cost.

How much time do you need to set up?

If we are providing the PA and Lighting equipment we will need a minimum of 3 hours to set up. If the equipment is being provided we will need 1 hour to sound check prior to our performance.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

A standard PA and Lighting package is included in the price, subject to venue confirmation. For more advanced packages these can be quoted on a case by case basis.
