Professional, energetic and above all exceptionally talented Soul Dedication has what it takes to really get the crowd going.

Soul Dedication consists of 5 leading talents to have emerged from the Manchester circuit in recent years. All aged between 21 and 25 they have developed an exciting and broad repertoire that draws from modern influences such as Corinne Bailey Rae, The Noisettes and Basement Jaxx as well as legends like Aretha Franklin and Dusty Springfield.

Testimonials

This was a fabulous act. The music was a major investment in the wedding budget and they were worth every penny. They built up great rapport with the young people who danced all night. The band were happy to go with our needs and didn't mind when we started late because the speeches ran over. They set up and took down without fuss and were altogether brilliant.

-Rev Tim Ball March 2014

-Alex Jackson-Events Organiser Oct 2012


Soul Dedication recently played at our Wedding venue in the Lakes - they were simple superb. Great presence, fantastic song choices and amazing musicians. They really made our reception a fun place to be and there wasn't one song where people weren't on the dance floor. We couldn't recommend them enough for your special day or event. Cheers guys and Clarissa. From Jonathan and Tatia Rea (World Superbike rider)

-Jonathan Rea


"Neil and I wanted to say a BIG thank you to the band as we were extremely happy with the performance at our wedding last Saturday. The jazz duo were superb and created the perfect ambience whilst drinks/ canapes were being served. So many of our guests commented on how good you guys were and asked where we'd found you!! We were all really impressed - thank you so much! We hope you enjoyed performing at The Gherkin - hope you get the chance to play up there again at some point! The acoustics worked so well!

All the best, and thanks once again.

Hi Paul,
I've recently returned from my honeymoon and wanted to get in touch so say a massive thank you to the whole band. All of the guests were completely blown away by how fabulous you were and are still talking about it now! I was nervous
about having a band after seeing a few crash and burn at weddings in the past but you were all amazing - I don't think I'll ever forget how amazing You've Got the Love sounded and my feet certainly knew that I'd been up dancing all night the next morning!
Thanks again and lots of love and luck for the future,

Clare

"Hi Alex,
Just thought I'd let you know we thought Soul Dedication were great when we saw them rehearse. Very nice people too!
I've e-signed the contracted and paid the deposit so all should be booked and lovely!
Thanks!" Katherine Palmer April 2011

"Alex, happy new year to you.
I just wanted to thank you for your professionalism when we came to you very late to book the band for my daughter's wedding. The booking procedure was so slick, we were very impressed.
Also wanted to give you feedback on the band's performance. However I guess you are already aware of how fabulous they are.
They were superb, very professional, and gifted musicians. They enhanced the party.
So many people stated they would book them if arranging a celebration. We were delighted, especially when they performed At Last for the bride and groom's first dance, Clarissa's voice was mesmerising.
Please pass on my thanks and good wishes for the future to the band.
Thank you again." Denise Gamblin, Daughter's Wedding Dec 2010.
