Can I choose the band set up?
How much does the band cost?
The band can go out as 5 - 11 piece band. The core line up is male and/or female vocals, guitar, bass, keyboard and drumkit.
On top of that you can add horns:

We recommend the 9 piece band.

We now have the option of adding a percussionist to all band sizes. (Highly Recommended)
The cost of the band depends on a number of factors from how many members of the band are required to the amount of time the band are required for and how far away the venue is. When you contact us we can go through these factors and send you an accurate price.

Are the musicians always the same as in the promotional videos?
We have some of the most talented musicians in Scotland working for the band and whilst the singers and musicians in the video are always first call they may sometimes be unavailable due to their busy performing careers. Here at The Soul Establishment we have a collective of top professionals from the music industry we can rely on to step in and deliver music of the highest standard. It's better to be using busy performers at the top of their game! Booking in advance is recommended.
