GET IN TOUCH!:

From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available on 0800 564 2240 / info@motownband.com and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND:

Once you have decided that OJ’s Soul Band are the band for you Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the day and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit (the amount varies from £240 - £480 depending on the package you go for) to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.

PLANNING:

In the lead up to the party you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, song requests for the disco or DJ, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.

ON THE NIGHT:

OJ’s Soul Band will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music (2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets). The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.

A guide to a standard evening party would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On For Welcome Drinks
  • 20:00 - First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for buffet if you’re having one, and if it’s a birthday, perfect time for doing the cake!)
  • 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
  • 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close

Timings are flexible to suit your needs and live sets can be split 3 x 40 mins if you prefer. OJ’s Soul Band standard price is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.

The band are very happy to perform a special request for you as long as they have at least two weeks notice of the song choice.

OJ’s Soul Band also offer a couple of brilliant lounge music options, choose from instrumental piano or a soulful acoustic trio - both can be the perfect addition to your welcome drinks or during dinner and can really help set the mood for a great party. As the musicians are already booked to perform in the evening, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate act for your daytime entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent duo.

To discuss hiring OJ’s Soul Band to perform at your party please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240, or email info@motownband.com.

OJ's Soul Band are based in Surrey and available to hire in Surrey, London, Hampshire, Sussex, Kent, surrounding counties, as well as further afield in the UK and internationally.

5/5 OJ's Soul Band were absolutely fantastic! They played some great songs and everyone in the party had so much fun dancing to their music. Unfortunately our meal / speeches ran on later than planned so the band weren't able to kick off at the scheduled time, but they adapted well to that and put on a great show. Erin was also wonderful liaising with me in the run up to the event which was hugely appreciated and meant that the event ran smoothly on the day. Thank you so much!

5/5 - We just wanted to say a huge thank you to the whole band for making our day so special. All the guests really enjoyed your performances and you had everyone up dancing and singing along. It was absolutely brilliant.

5/5 Wow, wow, wow. Words cannot express how absolutely delighted we were with OJ's! They absolutely made our wedding and we have had so many comments from friends and family saying how fantastic they were. I'm sure everyone always fears having an empty dance floor at their wedding, but I needn't have worried about this for a second with OJ's as the dance floor was absolutely rammed from their first song, all the way through to the final one. Absolutely unforgettable. 10/10 and can't thank you enough! Big highlight when the saxophonist came onto the dance floor too - loved it! Thanks for being one classy act and huge thanks to Phoebe and Erin for all the prep and organisation beforehand. Seamless!
