Soultastics

Combining vintage Rat Pack Swing with Jazz twists on Modern Pop, The Soultastics perform classic music of the 50’s, alongside sophisticated swung up hits from Nirvana, Meghan Trainor, Oasis, Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga and many more! Available as a 5 – 8 piece band, The Soultastics are a professional and charismatic group who exude sophistication and energy!

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 own stomping 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 imaginable who will add a massive wow to any event.

The Soultastics feature a flexible line up, normally performing as a 5 piece,  but with additional members up to a full 8 piece band. They come with a male singer as standard but you can request one of their female singers as lead vocalist instead.

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.
