“Our event was a 1920’s themed fundraiser hosted at Turf Moor, Burnley on Friday June 26th. We welcomed over 400 guests and the icing on the cake without a doubt was the music and entertainment provided by the band ‘The Soul Convicts’. We wanted only the best on the night and so I asked around and these guys came highly recommended from a couple of different sources.
Their attitude and service prior to the night was second to none – they were excited to be a part of the event and professional in asking us what we expected in terms of set times and involvement. They were dressed for the occasion and arrived on time, looked the part and totally stole the show. I’d have to say one of the most impressive things about this band is the number of them and the visual impact that had on the venue. Each with their own talent and instruments, they totally brought the room to life and impressed the room with their set from start to finish.
After the gambling was over, everyone was up on their feet and there wasn’t an inch of dance floor space left. They performed a wide range of songs that everybody loved, laughed and sang along to. As organisers of the event, we even got involved on stage! They performed an extra couple of soul songs beyond the time they were due to finish much to the delight of the audience and I have been asked countless times from a number of different guests who the band were and how they can be booked.
If another event is hosted next year, The Soul Convicts will be the first booking I make, without a doubt. “
