The New Foundations
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Just recommended the New Foundations to a friend and suggested they read the reviews - however, this showed that my review, that I left in April was not there?!! Not sure how that happened - so will leave another one now! We booked the New Foundations in April for my Birthday Party - fortunately we had the opportunity to see them in rehearsal before the party, so we knew from the start they were great and exactly what we wanted. They are all excellent musicians and Noel the lead vocalist has just the right voice and presence for fronting the band. We had a great night- all ages from 20 somethings to 70 somethings were impressed and all said that the Band made the night! I have just returned from a music festival in the west country ( no not that one) The music was great but those of us who had been to my party said " Shame they couldn't have got the New Foundations along here to play!" Next year lads?"

FAQs about hiring Soul & Motown Bands in Oxford

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. Please also keep in mind that soul & motown bands may ask for an small additional fee to prepare songs that aren't already on their song list. You can view the soul & motown band's song list on their Encore profile.

How much time do soul & motown bands take to set up?

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.
