Urban Soul Orchestra
Not being much of a fan of 'wedding music' that provides the same generic rubbish for every wedding, I am always excited when bands get in touch to offer something a bit different.
And our music industry connections means we know some very decent musicians who'll charge you a lot less than so called wedding bands and DJs.
I'd like to draw all you UK brides' attention to Urban Soul Orchestra. The band have a long history with the music industry (playing with Soul II Soul, Groove Armada among many) and have recently branched out into offering brides and grooms a 'non tacky' band for their weddings. Hurrah.
They're able to create pretty much whatever you want. They can do classical, chill out, rave music - whatever you need really. Urban Soul Orchestra are perfect for couples wanting one band who can do it all - from an acoustic assemble during dinner and a DJ set or big band to party to through the night.
Their DJs include Dan Lywood and Jose Carretas (Gorillza) and they've just created a 'Little Big Band' with 3 vocalists, quartet and backing tracks.
They've also played at celebrity weddings (including Peter Andre and Jordan - kind of reason enough to book them!)
