Q.Can we decide what songs you play?
A.Yes, you can suggest a few songs from our website and we will try to fit them in for you during the evening. However, we ask that the order of the set should be left to the experience of Soul Train.

Q.What time do you arrive at the venue?
A.We arrive 1 hour before the agreed start time.

Q.How long does it take to set up?
A.It takes 1 hour to load-in, set up and sound-check our equipment from the time we gain clear access to the room and performance space. We cannot set up any quicker than that and we cannot be held responsible for delays out with our control. Therefore, if the wedding is running 30 minutes late our start time will be delayed 30 minutes.

Q.How reliable are Soul Train?
A. Soul Train are a professional wedding band with many years experience, offering a properly contracted service and a commitment to excellence. We have an excellent reliability record and arrive on time to your venue.

Q.What happens if someone in the band is ill?
A.We have a pool of excellent replacement musicians we can call on to replace any one of us in the event of illness. If all our best efforts prove impossible, we will do our very best to find a replacement band for your event.

Q.How long do you play for?
A.Our standard performance time is from 8pm Midnight with 1x 30 minute break.

Q.Can you play later than Midnight?
A.We prefer not to play after Midnight as a wedding day can be extremely long and tiring for your guests, and we would therefore prefer to finish the night on a high with all your guests present. However, if negotiated and agreed at time of booking we can play to a maximum of 12.30am and an additional fee will be required.
