The Shakers of Soul are one of the UK’s newest and most exciting Soul and Disco bands, catering for high end events both in the UK and worldwide. All band members are world class musicians brought together by a love for Soul, Disco, Funk and Motown. Although the band are relatively young (28 average age), they all have at least 10 years experience playing the highest profile events, weddings and shows (listed below).
The band line-up consists of 2 Lead Vocalists, Drums, Bass, Guitar, Saxophone, Trumpet, Keyboards and Percussion. This line-up can be expanded or made smaller to fit your perfect event (although we don’t usually go lower than 6-piece). We always travel with our own sound engineer and lighting show to add that extra flare to your event.
Below are a list of recent accolades for the band members;
Venues played - Carnegie Hall (New York), Royal Festival Hall (London), Sheperd’s Bush Empire, Bridgewater Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, City Winery (Nashville), Formula One Events, Manchester MEN, O2 Arena (London), Manchester United Christmas Party

We booked The Shakers of Soul for our Wedding, becasue we wanted an impact from a band, and they didn't disapoint!! From the beginning of booking them to the day itself they were incredibly professional, and their performance was on another level to any band I'd seen!
