TALENT

We have a very straightforward structure when it comes to booking singers for our 3 showbands. If you book a band, we will do everything we can to book those singers in that video for the gig. If, for whatever reason a singer is unavailable, we bring in a singer from one of the other 2 showbands.

We work as tight-knit collective of exclusively top class performers, that is a result of a months long vetting and rehearsal process. Anyone coming in to our line ups must be well-versed on the set lists and knows our medleys backwards. In the rare event we can't fill a spot in the line up, we have another line of reinforcements just in case of emergency, who are also at the top of the game and have all been 'gigging' with the Soho Collective since its inception.

Check out our incredible array of talent below.
