About The Soultastics

Vintage-themed band
Crawley
Public liability insurance of £10 million
A swing band with a difference, performing a unique mix of modern rock and pop songs in vintage style alongside Rat Pat and swing classics.

The Soultastics are an exceptionally talented and very flexible band, who can perform music from the classic era of Jazz to current Pop hits... all cunningly put into vintage style! Having re-arranged lots of music from internet sensation, Postmodern Jukebox, this fabulous band have also created many of their ownstomping swing twists on pop tunes from the 70s, 80s and 90s up to the present day! The band have a huge repertoire and can tailor any performance to an individual clients needs. They have a large selection of laid back tunes when something more low key is required, as well as their hip up-beat swing tunes that will make you want to put on your spats and tassels and learn to Charleston like it’s 1929. These outstanding musicians can tailor their performances to the exact needs of any client, performing in a specific style, or creating a varied programme of music through an evening. If you want all the sophistication of Swing music at your event, but want everybody to get down and boogie afterwards, the band can also perform a Soul/Funk set later in the evening (see repertoire). Their charismatic singers deliver superb performances from mellow jazz through to the most energetic and soulful funk. You can choose to have either male or female singers performing for you or even better... have both! They also feature the funkiest horn section immaginable who will add a massive wow to any event (please see booking options)! The Soultastics feature a flexible line up, normally performing as a 5 piece, but with additional members up to a full 10 piece band (please see booking options). They come with a male singer as standard but you can request one of their female singers as lead vocalist instead (please see booking options). DJ music or background music can be played in between their sets, with the option to link your own ipod to their system and put your own playlist on.

What can I say everyone enjoy it they had a great time, Before the music started they were just getting on, but as soon as the band got going everyone just stopped and were astounded with the performance, all the comments were very positive on how great the team was - lively and enjoyable. Thank you so much for you help to make the evening so enjoyable.

Soultastics were just great. Easy to talk to in the days before the gig, we were able to discuss and modify the playlist to suit the guests and the host. They were able to play two different styles on the same night; a backing session for drinks, and then a formal set over dinner. Great voices, fantastic mood and vibe. Wonderful playlist suiting a variety of tastes. The cover version, especially requested, of 'My Iron Lung' was terrific. Lovely people too. Tx!

I'm just writing to you and the rest of the band on behalf of all my family and friends to say a massive thank you for the most amazing night we've had in a long while! People had travelled from quite a distance to come to the party and they were not let down - the atmosphere was electric and that's all thanks to you guys! It will not be forgotten in a hurry! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect night! Thanks again!

Fern C
