Full Description
The Soul Miners are a 100% live, high-energy, 8-piece band, and we specialise in performing Motown & classic soul music. We are based in Cardiff, South Wales and are available to perform throughout the UK. Our repertoire consists of music from legendary soul artists such as Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, and Ray Charles. Many of the songs from the films ‘The Blues Brothers’ and ‘The Commitments’ are featured in our sets, as we know how much our audiences love to dance and sing along to them! We provide entertainment at weddings, parties, functions, charity fundraising events, and festivals. Our musicians and vocalists are highly-experienced professionals who share a love of soul music, and we believe our enjoyment and enthusiasm for performing together shows in our performances. We like to have FUN! We do not provide a DJ service as such, but would play background music which is in keeping with your event. If you would prefer us to play your own music we are very happy to do so. Many of our clients provide their own playlists on an iPod, laptop etc, which we connect to our mixing desk. We run the equipment, so all you need do is relax and enjoy the music! We use top quality instrumentation, amplification, and lighting equipment, to ensure we always deliver a great show. We will ensure that your guests get up, and stay up, dancing all night long! Please take a look at our Testimonials to see what our clients have said about us.

Unbelievably talented musicians!
When we started planning our wedding, we both knew we wanted a soul band and although we'd never seen The Soul Miners perform, we went with the recommendation of a friend. I can't tell you how glad I am that we listened! The energy these guys give to every single song is just unbelievable! Their vocals are insane and I can't even describe in words how talented the musicians are. The dance floor didn’t stop rocking from the first, till the last track and all our guests have not stopped talking about "The Band". On top of this, all the band members were so lovely taking the time to congratulate us and chat with our guests. I can honestly say that booking The Soul Miners was the best decision I made (apart from saying Yes of course!). Thank you so much guys for making our wedding one to remember. You are quite simply amazing!

We cannot recommend The Soul Miners highly enough!
We can’t thank The Soul Miners enough for making our really special day into an absolutely unforgettable one! When we were looking for bands to play at our wedding reception, there were very few that had footage of live performances on their websites. We were really excited with the live performances and impressed that they had the confidence to show how they sounded in a live setting. Liaising with the band manager Paul was so easy; Paul was really helpful and reassuring. On the day the band arrived early, were extremely professional and prepared to adapt to last minute changes. The Soul Miners performance was absolutely superb and exceeded all our expectations. They definitely got the party started and came prepared with a few dance moves of their own!! Our wedding guests were shaking their tail feathers from the first song to the last! And so many guests are still telling us how good they were….weeks after the wedding! So if you like soul music, we cannot recommend The Soul Miners highly enough.

There should be a law against being this good!
'There should be a law against being this good...but I'm glad there isn't! We were absolutely delighted that you played at our wedding yesterday. All our guests were blown away with just how brilliant you were and it capped an already special day. Your professionalism at the venue was fantastic. We would thoroughly recommend 'The Soul Miners' to anyone looking to book a wedding in the future.'
