The Soulsmiths is one of the leading party and function bands on the South Coast. We’re an up to 7 piece band featuring a combination of; double female vocals, guitar, bass, keys, drums and sax, playing everything we can from the very broad genre that is soul music! We can be flexible in size from just vocals to full Septet to fit almost any size venue and stage.
Our current repertoire covers everything from classic 60s Motown Bruno Mars and all that’s in between – check out our song listings to see what we could put into a set list for you.
We’re still working on our gig list for 2020. If you’d like to book us for your pub, venue or function then let us know!
New Gigs added all the time!
10 years of the Soulsmiths!
This year sees the 10th year since the Soulsmiths were founded by our bass player, Stef and then keyboard player, Rich. Kelly and John joined about a year later and the current line up has now been together about 3 years. We’re not sure if Stef thought the band would last as long as it has so far – but we’re sure glad it has!
Chamber Soul Music?
You might have heard of Chamber music? Well the Soulsmiths added some Soul into that when performing for the Worthing and Adur Chamber Christmas Party in December.
“The Soulsmiths were excellent,” said Chamber Chief Executive Tina Tilley, “they got us all up dancing and singing along and really brought the party to life. We loved it!”
Soul for the Homeless
Two of our members performed for charity in Worthing town centre recently. Singers Kelly and Caryn sang to raise money as part of Worthing Churches Homeless Projects’ Busking Day. Shoppers in Worthing were grooving along to their soulful vocals and had a great time! Lots of money was raised and went to this very deserving cause too
The band love playing to get people up dancing and having a good time so if that’s what you’re after for your special occasion then look no further.
We are happy to learn a special song – even if it’s not soul! We rehearse weekly so it’s easy for us to learn a new song for your special occasion, don’t be afraid to ask.
We also constantly adjust our sets to fit the venue and keep things fresh. We have sets comprising of 1,2 and 3 sessions so can be really flexible for your needs.
50 Years of Soul
We’re learning more and more songs in the form of Soul and it’s something that can be extremely diverse as a genre. We currently play everything from early 1960’s motown to modern tracks that just have that bit of soul about them. Check out our full song list for more info on exactly what we play.
