Soul Party Showband videos

This renowned 10-piece Soul, Funk & Disco band have performed over 1000 gigs throughout the UK and Europe across a huge variety of venues.  From TV chat shows to headlining to a 10,000 audience at music festivals. From being booked to support Girls Aloud and Will Young to performing at the British Formula 1 Grand Prix at Silverstone in 2011 and at celebrity weddings, most recently for Eamonn Holmes & Ruth Langsford.

After forming in 1994 the band was soon booked for a spot on tour with American soul legend Edwin Starr followed by release of their debut album Soul Fiction in 1997. In 2000 the band performed a Live medley on national BBC1 with Atomic Kitten & Martine McCutcheon for Children in Need. In 2001 they were resident band on Carlton TV's 'Langsford Late' TV show - a series of 8 chat shows with Ruth Langsford. In between the band performed and recorded a promotional video for the BBC on the set of Noel Edmonds House Party at BBC Television Centre, London, and then finished work on a number of projects including a recording of Midnight Hour with another American soulster, Geno Washington.

Other guests who've joined the band on stage include Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet and M People/Eurythmics/Lisa Stansfield saxophonist Snake Davis. International appearances include gigs in various European countries including a 3 day appearance at the Guinness Jazz/Music Festival in Cork, Ireland in 1999 and 2002. In November 2005 BBC1 again commissioned the band to appear live on TV for Children in Need.

Within their set list are classic soul numbers such as Otis Redding's Try a Little Tenderness and Aretha Franklin's Think, but also popular contemporary classics like Queen's Don't Stop Me Now and the band's storming version of the B52's Love Shack - with a heavy metal medley thrown in!

The group bring a truly electric atmosphere, both visual and spontaneous. The band features three high quality vocalists, driving rhythm section and a kicking horn section that won't stay still for a second!

"The best moment of my wedding day after saying "I do" to Eamonn was dancing the night away to the band. Our friends are STILL talking about "that brilliant band from Plymouth". If you want to get your party really started then sign them up now. Book early to avoid disappointment!"

Ruth Langsford (Mrs Ruth Holmes!)

"A big funky outfit making a joyous sound in the true spirit of the soul band revue - great entertainment"

Snake Davis - M People

"Fast, fun and furious - we guarantee you won't be able to sit still! This band really do love what they do; their on-stage energy is infectious and they create a fantastic atmosphere. It's no surprise they have a devoted following for their stylish & energetic show. Unmissable entertainment!"

Sheldon Theatre 2010

"This band creates a truly electric atmosphere, both visual and spontaneous. It features three high quality vocalists, a driving rhythm section and a kicking horn section that won't stay still for a second! It's a 'High Energy' style and vocalist Jimmy Alderson is the consummate frontman, an expert both at working the crowd and at audience interaction. It's a winning formula and it puts this band in great demand"

All-Electric Productions 2007

"Encores were jaw dropping with totally unexpected showmanship and flair you rarely see these days. It's hard to believe that they have been going fourteen years because they're as fresh today as they were when I first heard them all those years ago. Go see them, you won't be disappointed"

South West Gig Guide

"The best covers band I have ever seen"

Guestbook Entry 2009

"I got near the front just in time to see the kind of explosive team effort that left me exhilarated. The atmosphere really was electric and the anticipation all but touchable. Treat yourself, go and see them soon"
