‘The best band ever...... simple. Thanks for playing our wedding! People haven't stopped talking about you!!!!!!!!’ – Alan and Sarah, City Hall, Cardiff, wedding.
Welcome and thanks for visiting!
‘When we started planning our wedding, we both knew we wanted a soul band and although we'd never seen The Soul Miners perform, we went with the recommendation of a friend. I can't tell you how glad I am that we listened! The energy these guys give to every single song is just unbelievable! Their vocals are insane and I can't even describe in words how talented the musicians are. The dance floor didn’t stop rocking from the first, till the last track and all our guests have not stopped talking about "The Band".
On top of this, all the band members were so lovely taking the time to congratulate us and chat with our guests. I can honestly say that booking The Soul Miners was the best decision I made (apart from saying Yes of course!). Thank you so much guys for making our wedding one to remember. You are quite simply amazing.' – Mr & Mrs St Leger, Caerhyn Farm Venue, Llangadog, Carmarthenshire, wedding.
The Soul Miners are a 100% live, 8-piece, high-energy, soul band, who specialise in performing Motown & Stax classic soul music. We are based in Cardiff, Wales, and are available to perform throughout the UK.
Since our first gig in 2007, we have performed at hundreds of events across Wales and the UK. From a house party to a festival – we’ll fit right in! Weddings in particular are our speciality.
We are not a cabaret band just going through the motions. Our musicians and vocalists share a deep love of soul music, and we believe our enthusiasm for performing together shows in our performances - we like to have FUN!
Our repertoire features songs by legendary soul artists such as Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, and Ray Charles. Many of the songs from the films ‘The Blues Brothers’ and ‘The Commitments’ are in our sets, as we know how much our audiences love to dance and sing along to them! Great fun, and perfect entertainment for any event.
'The Soul Miners were ab-soul-utely outstanding, everyone commented on how fantastic and friendly you were. You made our evening truly special and we didn't want it to end! Thank you for everything - you were so helpful from the moment we enquired if you were available.'
