Act Profile

Solid Gold Soul

Featuring powerful, high-octane female vocals, Solid Gold Soul play an energetic, floor-filling selection of Soul and Motown Classics.
Talented musicians with a résumé to match, the band delivers sweet soul grooves with a super-charged rock edge.
Based in the Midlands, Solid Gold Soul is a four piece band - just Vocals, Guitar, Bass and Drums - but don't be deceived by the stripped-down line-up: this band has a big sound!
Whilst most Classic Soul & Motown acts typically feature eight or nine musicians (and a big price tag), Solid Gold Soul is set-up to provide high quality music utilising a four piece line-up. The size of the band makes it an ideal choice for venues both large and small.
Music is 100% live (no backing tracks or sequencers) and performances are energetic & enthusiastic, and with years of experience packing dance floors, guests are guaranteed to be dancing & singing along from the first song to the last!

The band are all full time professional musicians and as well as having literally thousands of appearances at weddings, corporate functions and parties at some of the U.K’s premier venues. Between them members of Solid Gold Soul have worked, recorded and toured with Kenny Thomas, Roachford, Big Country, Meatloaf, Jackie Graham, Shirley Jones, Jocelyn Brown, Roy Wood, The Valentine Brothers, Rick Astley, to name but a few.
Solid Gold Soul are favourites at Butlins soul weekenders where they play under the name 2nd City Soul.

Thank you so much for making our wedding reception at the Dormy House Hotel such a fantastic occasion. From start to finish the dance floor was packed and I think half the guests would have been up for carrying on all night if it was possible. Everybody who we've spoken to since the wedding has mentioned how good they thought the band was – the quality of music and talent amongst you all really shone through. We will have no hesitation in recommending you to any of our friends who we hope will marry some day in the future and please feel free to use this letter to help promote your great work. Good luck for the future and please pass on my regards to the other members of the band. Best wishes.
