Frequently asked questions

Can a Soul & Motown band take song requests?

"Of course! Professional bands loving learning new songs, and it’s very common for bands to learn a special song as a first dance song. If you’d like your band to prepare something for you, make sure you give them several weeks notice so that they can fully prepare and rehearse the song for you. Be aware that some bands may charge a small fee for this. It’s unlikely that your band will be able to take song requests on the night, but if a guest asks for a particular Motown track, it’s likely that the band will already know it!"

What equipment do I need to provide for a Soul & Motown band?

"Almost every professional band is “self-contained” meaning they provide all of their own equipment, including PA, lighting and mixing desk. If your venue regularly hosts live music, it’s worth checking whether they already have a sound system that the band can use. It’s courteous to provide plenty of water for the band, and some friendly hosts offer the band a meal before or after their set, which is always gratefully received!"

How long does a Soul & Motown band need to set up?

A good band will need roughly an hour to unload, unpack and set up all of their equipment, as well as thoroughly sound checking. If you’re booking a larger band, expect this to take 90 minutes.
