If you've been searching for a bona fidé soul band to spice up your night, you may as well stop looking as these guys are the real deal. Ranging from 7 piece to 12 piece, this flexible outfit will take you on a journey through the soul genre; from the main classics of Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan and Whitney, through the nostalgic cut of R&B with the killing tunes of Destiny's Child and Usher, to the genesis of neo-soul with genre-defining hits by Lauryn Hill and Erikah Badu.
Plug in your headphones and have a listen!

Whilst the singers and musicians in the video are always the first call, occasionally with their busy performing careers they will become unavailable for the date of the event. Fortunately LDN works as a tight-knit collective of top class performers so the people coming in to replace the singers are from a selection of the best in the business. After all we'd rather be using top class people with busy careers settling for second best! Take a look at just some our amazing bunch of singers and have a listen to them jamming with the band!
