WHEN THE SINGERS CAME INTO THE CROWD, EVERYONE JUST FOLLOWED THEM
Soho Entertainment were an absolute pleasure to work with from the outset. Joe called us ahead of the event to get an idea of the sort of couple we were, our musical preferences and our general hopes for the energy of the day. He absolutely nailed it. We had the bands female vocalist sing Promise by Ben Howard as I walked down the aisle with my Dad. I still get goosebumps listening to it on the video no. The vocalist made this moment very special.
The Jazz Trio for the drinks reception essentially whisked us away to summer in Paris with their wonderful music. It helped that the sun was shining but they managed to deliver exactly the atmosphere and vibe we'd longed for, after such a difficult 18 months of postponements.
Then finally, we had the 8 piece band for the evening. I've never seen a dance floor of such happy people. Joe is an incredible singer who knows how to capture a crowd, even the shy ones! Soho Ents are unbelievably talented. I havent spoken to one guest without a mention of how brilliant their music was. After many months of people not being able to dance or stand shoulder to shoulder with live music, Soho Collective made everyone feel as if they had been taken back in time, as if the last year and a bit never existed.
I would recommend this band to anyone. They're so versatile. The way they transitioned from ceremony, to drinks reception, to party music was so clever. Thank you guys for bringing our day to life and for making the people we love smile again after what had been such a hard year.

Wedding - July 2021
We booked the Soho String Octet for our wedding and they were incredible! The whole experience from beginning to end was so personal, with them eager to find out what we loved to make the day perfect. Walking down the aisle just felt magical and they kept our guests well entertained after with beautiful arrangements. We booked Soho City Collective 11 piece band for the evening and it was everything we hoped for and more. Again the service from beginning to end was so personal and nothing was too much to ask - including a Christmas song to close with! So many of our guests have said how much they loved the band and we are already thinking of an excuse to book them again. The musicians were so professional and the booking process was incredibly smooth. I would highly recommend to anyone - thank you so much!
Charlotte, Wedding - Sept 2021
Joe and the band performed at our wedding in September and we were absolutely thrilled - they were incredible and from the first moment they started playing everyone was on the dance floor and stayed there all evening! We've had so many lovely messages afterwards commenting on how great they were - a really memorable performance. They also did a cracking job with the dance floor lighting - which looked stunning and gave our marquee a real party vibe.
Joe was great at keeping in touch ahead of the day and I was always really confident that he had it all under control - they also did an amazing job of taking the time over our set list. I wouldn't have changed a thing and would recommend the band to anyone!

THIS BAND IS OUT OF THIS WORLD!
Dear Joe, Eloise, and the entire band,
Sam and I just wanted to express our heartfelt thanks to you all for making our wedding truly unforgettable!
You went above and beyond to create our perfect set list and vibe, your energy was infectious, and I’ve lost count of the amount of guests that commented about ‘how incredible the band were’.
The mix of superb vocals, beat boxing, audience interaction, and seamless transitions between songs blew everyone away. My aim was for the dance floor to never be empty- you achieved that and more- I don’t think anybody left it all night!
I couldn’t recommend you more highly, not only were you extremely professional, you were so friendly and everyone could tell that you guys were also having fun! Thank you for being such a special part of our dream day!
Francesca and Sam
Wedding - August 2021
Consummate professionals - this band is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Incredible arrangements, incredible players and incredible vibe at every single gig. I have booked them for our wedding and every step of the way Soho Ents. have been the dream wedding band - from song choices, to first dance, to lineup choices, this is the best band in London. Absolutely, 100% book Soho Collective for your party, event, wedding, festival - speak to Joe and he will deliver exactly the vibe you want. Can not recommend enough!
S. Morgan-Grahame, Wedding - July 2021
We couldn’t have been happier with Soho Gold. They were fun, full of energy and so incredibly talented. They nailed the acoustic set in the outdoor venue and then brought the party vibes in the ballroom. The lead, Joe Vetch, also performed a song I requested that wasn’t part of their set on one weeks notice. That’s the kind of service and commitment you will get with Soho Collective. They were such a hit that the crowd wouldn’t let them leave the stage when their time was up, so they played a few more tracks, which we were so grateful for.
They smashed it and we feel so fortunate that they were part of our wedding day.
K. Sharon, Wedding - Sept 2021
Guys, OMG the biggest thank you everrrrrr for the best day and night of our lives and being such a big part of it! You guys were INSANEEEE! Everyone said it was the best party they have ever been to and Laura was magical in the church!
The whole thing was just perfect and we haven’t stopped smiling! Thank you for everything, we hope you had a good time? We have recommended you on BIG time!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!! We wanna do it all over again!
B. Kruger, Wedding - July 2021
"Absolutely amazing! Honestly the band were out of this world. Everyone commented on how fantastic the band were. A massive thank you for all your help with the prep. Oh not forgetting Alastair who not only was a great guy but entertained the guests brilliantly. Have a great new year and we hope to see you and the band soon."
N. Oxley, Wedding - Dec 2018
"A great night was had by all and the band were brilliant.
As you saw everyone had a lot of fun and please could you send my thanks to the band for making the atmosphere so good. Also a big thank you to yourself for organising and I am writing to Nij but he and his team were great and delivered everything I needed."
L. Miller, Corporate, IIAA Ltd. - Jan 2019
Thank you so much for providing the band and DJ for my clients marquee wedding in August 2021.
Throughout the whole process from initial enquiry, postponement and adjusting the booking you were awesome. You answered all my questions ensuring I had complete faith in you.
On the night itself every single member of the band was phenomenal. From the sound engineer to the singers to the DJ, every single person was professional and damn talented.
I am not even exaggerating when I say that dance-floor was packed ALL night, my clients and their friends did not stop dancing. And that frankly is a true testament isnt it.
So although that was my last ever wedding, I am thankful you made it go off with a blast.
Bernadette, Wedding - Sept 2021
We honestly can't rate the Soho City Collective highly enough, they were absolutely amazing and we loved every second of them playing. They made our wedding! The vocals were fantastic and song choices exactly what we wanted.
The first dance song was performed so beautifully too. We've had so many compliments about them and all our guests thought they were amazing too.
In terms of logistics they were very professional setting up quickly, flexible in changing the sets from 2 to 3 due to other timings in the evening and the band manager Joe was communicative throughout.
We would have no hesitation recommending them and wish we could do it all over again. Thank you to them for such a fantastic performance.
James and Emma, Wedding - Oct 2021
Mitul and I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for making our big day so amazing. We couldn't be happier with how you brought our evening reception to life. We were both so gutted when we couldn't have a dance floor but having such a talented DJ meant that the whole reception was perfect. It really was the best day of our lives
Thanks for being so adaptive to the evening, and helping to create the perfect atmosphere for a cheeky dancefloor! Everyone still compliments your voice and sax playing, it really made the evening
Any future events, we will be sure to think of you. Thanks once again!
Sapna, Wedding - July 2021
I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you and all the band members of the Soho City Collective, they were absolutely fantastic! We've had so many guests remarking on how great the band was and I don't think we had an empty dance floor for the entire evening - we really couldn't have asked for anything better.
I hope you and the band had as much fun as we all did!
Venetia, Wedding - November 2021
"I used the Soho Collective for my husband's 30th and I couldn't be happier! They were extremely professional and accommodating and even learnt a couple of new songs, which were my husbands all time favourites. They were very punctual and extremely friendly and have such a great energy. On the night they were excellent and created such a fun atmosphere and everyone loved it - will definitely recommend them for a fun vibe for any party"
A. Ahmad, Party- Nov 2017
"Huge, huge thank you to Joe and the rest of the Soho Collective for making our wedding! The band are true professionals who worked tirelessly in the lead up, and on the day to deliver the most perfect wedding music for us and i cannot recommend working with them enough. We had so many compliments on the day and were delighted by the set list, the music and the team. Can't wait to see them again soon!"
A. Yaffe, Wedding - April 2018
Joe I had to email you to say what an incredible night last night was! Your band were insane!!!! There were a couple of absolutely gem moments (Teenage Dirtbag and Mr. Brightside) when the singers came into the crowd and everyone just followed them to the music and they played us like puppets it was fantastic!!! I had a lot of people ask me who the band were and I have been recommending you all in every way. Please pass on our massive thanks, it couldn’t have gone any better!!!! Best of luck for the future, you and your band are very talented and deserve a lot of success.
L. Tuohy, Wedding - December 2018
THE BEST PARTY BAND IN LONDON (or anywhere). Such a good set, fun, interactive, sexy. Loved every second and wanted them to play all night. Heard them at a wedding but would be perfect for any event. Wonderful.'
A. Knights, Party - Feb 2020
Thanks so much for helping create such an amazing night for Savills! We have received such raving feedback in general, and so many amazing comments about the band! We are sure to book you guys again, and can’t wait for the next event we work with you.
N. Morgan. The Edit Events Ltd - Dec 2018
IT'S NOT AN EXAGGERATION TO SAY THAT SO MANY OF OUR GUESTS SAID THAT SOHO COLLECTIVE WAS THE BEST PARTY BAND THEY'D EVER HEARD
"The Soho Collective played at our wedding party and did an amazing job helping to make it a night to remember. They got everyone on to the dance floor with a great selection of classic and modern songs with something in there for everyone. They are all incredible musicians and great personalities on stage. Everybody was buzzing; a great band. Thank you so much"
J. Benjamin, Wedding - March 2017
"An enormous thank you to Soho Collective for an incredible 2 hour set at our wedding. Music played such an important part of our day, and they did not disappoint - they are so talented!! They performed such an amazing variety of songs from so many decades that they kept all of our guests dancing! We couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you"
G. Tremaine , Wedding - December 2018
'The band delivered everything we asked for! The set list was tailored to suit our guest list and had everyone up on the dance floor most of the evening. Glad we opted for the additional instruments (in particular sax) as everyone commented how beautiful the music was. Would highly recommend for any occasion!"
A. Braham, Party - Jan 2017
"Soho Collective were exceptional! They tailored our taste in music for the song selection and delivered it with such professionalism! Our wedding wouldn’t have been as fun without them!"
J. Cooper, Wedding - August 2018
"Hi Joe, I just wanted to write to say that the band absolutely nailed it last Saturday. They killed the first song, everyone loved the energy, the set list was perfect (you were right about the Teen Rock medley, that got all the 20-35 year old boy cousins raging). We had so much fun. Everyone asked us about the band and commented on how good they were. Also, the lights were perfect! Please convey our thanks to Grace, Laura and the rest of the band. And thank you for all the coordination and support over the past few months. Happy new year!"
G. Joy , Wedding- Dec 2018
"We had Soho Collective for our wedding in July and we were beyond impressed. All our guests have commented on how good the band were at getting everyone up and dancing and also sounded fantastic! We loved working with Joe, choosing the set list and looking at all of their medleys.
On the day, the band were happy to work with the venue to get set up and packed down discreetly which was great. Their 2 sets were the perfect amount of time and there were songs for everyone in there. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, We will most definitely be recommending you to friends. Thanks again, Mary and Matt"
M. Dunnett, Wedding - July 2018
"We first saw Joe at an Asian wedding fair. We saw the clip of Soho Collective and absolutely loved their medleys. We signed up for more information and Joe subsequently sent us an email to let us know that Soho Collective was playing at Quaglino’s. We decided to go see them perform and we were blown away. The atmosphere created by the band was fantastic and everyone was on their feet dancing. The melodies were just as in their promo video and the music was just what we were looking for – RnB and garage, old 80s and 90s classics.
We spoke with Joe in the lead up to the wedding and he was a pleasure to deal with. Booking Soho Collective was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The dancefloor at our reception was filled with people dancing and singing along. All our guests commented on how good the band was and how much fun they had."
P. Thakker, Wedding - April 2018
"These guys performed at our wedding as a 9-piece, where we happened to have a large number of serious musicians as guests! They were simply superb. The pre-wedding discussions about the playlist sets were easy and detailed, and they performed every song as requested. Soul, funk, jazz, disco, house, all "floor-fillers" impeccably delivered with a great ambiance and connection with the audience. Very impressive, and would def recommend them (and book them again!)."
A. Davies , Wedding - October 2018
"We had Soho City Collective at our wedding in Spring '18, and it was the most fantastic band we could have ever imagined. A set list perfectly designed to keep guests jumping on the dance floor, wonderful communication in the lead up to the wedding and everything in place so my husband and I didn't have to worry about anything at all on the day. The London Party Band is the only band you should consider hiring for your event! I will be looking out for every gig they play in the future, and be recommending them to everyone who's looking for a band for Christmas parties, Weddings, Anniversaries and Events. If you could give them 10 stars, I would."
R. Moynes, Wedding - August 2018
"Soho Collectve played for our wedding in August 2018 and were absolutely incredible. We’d had a recommendation to check them out and it was particularly handy that we were able to see them playing a ‘public’ gig at a bar in London. What the promotional videos don’t show is how good they are in front of a crowd but we weren’t at all disappointed. We knew we wanted to book them as soon as we heard their UK Garage Medley. They sounded phenomenal on the night - our guests loved them and the dance floor was full for the whole time they played. Just as importantly, though, they were really nice to work with and prepared some requests for us that went down really well and helped make the day uniquely ‘ours’. It’s not an exaggeration to say that many of our guests said Soho were the best event band they’d ever heard (yeah, some of our guests were a bit basic, but not all of them). It’s a comfort to know that when we’re old and divorced, all our friends will still remember the evening they spent in a tent with this amazing band."
S. Andrews, Wedding, August 2018
Feet have finally touched ground and we are just about back to normality... I just wanted to thank you and your enormously talented band for helping to create the perfect atmosphere for us on our special day! You guys were simply brilliant!
We had loads of positive feedback from guests - and I hope you did too!
All the best with everything and we'll definitely give you a shout in the future! (Soho Jazz)
Julius and Sophia, Wedding, June 2019
Just wanted to say, from both myself and Nikki, thank you to you and the rest of the band for simply a brilliant night.
Everyone has been talking about you guys ever since, and we had high hopes but, bloody hell, did you blow them out of the water! You guys were a massive part of why Saturday night was just incredible. And learning out first dance with two weeks notice was hugely appreciated!
All the best, and thanks again!
Simon and Nikki, Wedding, August 2019
Good morning Joe. Sorry not to write to you sooner, but I wanted to say a very big thankyou to you and all the band for the absolutely amazing performance at Chloe and Murray"s wedding on 17th. You guys were all star performers, so amazing, so talented, such a great sound, and we loved the interaction with our party guests. We have a few videos that people took on their phones, including when the singers came down into the crowd, and we love listening to you again!
Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and a large part of that was your band"s contribution. Please pass on our thanks to all the band, they were all amazing!
Maggie and Chris, August 2019
We just wanted to say that Soho City Collective did the most fantastic job at the wedding. The party was on the dance floor the entire night! The band absolutely made the evening! They were absolutely brilliant and we had so many compliments from our guests saying that they were the best band they had ever heard at a wedding!
Thanks so much!
Hannah and Jason, Wedding, June 2019
The band was phenomenal. Angela and I really enjoyed working with Joe. He went above and beyond to make sure our day was exactly how we wanted it. I had several guests remark to me that the band was the best wedding band they had ever seen. Couldn't be more pleased!
Cal and Angela, Wedding, July 2019
Joe and the band were absolute professionals from start to finish. The team accommodated multiple date and venues changes due to Covid and could not have been more helpful. A slick act on the night with a diverse and well rehearsed set list. I cannot recommend them highly enough. THANK YOU
Ben, Wedding - August 2021
The band were the absolute best. Everyone said that they were the best they had seen at a wedding.
Very accommodating to our style and had a brilliant set to get everyone up and dancing.
Thank you so much!
James, Wedding, Sept 2021
We both wanted to thank Joe our fantastic DJ at our wedding! Joe called me the day before the wedding to have a chat and find out a little more about me and JD, which I thought was so lovely to know he cared about what we wanted on our big day. Joe was incredible! He had everyone and I mean everyone up on that dance floor! We both couldn’t be happier with how the music was for our special day! We will definitely book through you again and Joe!
Thank you so much for all your support considering we’d booked this with you over three years ago and with covid you’ve been continuously professional throughout.
Pippa & JD, February 2022
