"Fantastic experience with this band! Lead singer Rosie had excellent communication leading up to the event and made sure I was happy with the song choices. She also asked for any personal choices so they could learn them on time. The band showed up with plenty of time to set up and start at the agreed time. They sounded so fantastic and had our whole group up dancing the whole time!! Id highly recommend them and want to say thanks so much for a brilliant evening. It was the best part of our night!! "

FAQs about hiring Soul & Motown Bands in Colchester

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Can any soul & motown band play my favourite song?

Professional soul & motown bands will often take requests, but you will need to give them plenty of notice.

You can view the soul & motown band's song list on their Encore profile.

Your soul & motown band will usually arrive about an hour or so before their performance begins to set up and get settled before they start playing. To avoid any delays, make sure the performance space is ready for the soul & motown band prior to their arrival.

My venue has asked for the performer’s PLI & PAT inspection certificates. What are these?

PLI stands for Public Liability Insurance. This insurance covers damage to another person or their property (it is also known as third party insurance). As many of our soul & motown bands are members of the Musician's Union, they are already covered by PLI up to £10 million. PAT stands for portable appliance testing. Most of our soul & motown bands will already have a PAT inspection certificate for their musical equipment/PA system, which they can provide to your venue if they need it.
