Profile

Soul Revival are the Brighton-based soul band that is plugged direct into the source. The band members have been cherry-picked from the most exciting and creative bands on the scene and have been providing the soundtrack for their good-time home town throughout the noughties. They've got the look, too, with strict suit and tie dress code, and vintage equipment a-plenty. And they're also in possession of the unique talent that is Mr. Jim Matthews, the biggest voice in town.


Soul music is all about funky dance grooves, classic tunes, powerful horns, vibing guitar and wailing organ. It's the blues, rock 'n' roll, gospel and pop all in one. So, with the express aim of your party happiness and 100% soul satisfaction, we present for your consideration, the number one choice for your function: SOUL REVIVAL.


A bit of class, a bit of swank, a bit of fun. And let the best party music ever made do the rest.

" Soul Rivival are a firm favourite at The Brunswick with some of the finest musicians on the South Coast playing tunes that you HAVE to dance to. Professional from the second you book them until the end of the inevitable encore, we will continue to book them again and again. "

" We booked Soul Revival for our son's 30th birthday in the garden. They were absolutely fabulous and went down a storm with all ages. Everyone was dancing in the garden and singing along to the well known soul party greats. They even allowed a guest slot for a couple of singers at the party to have a go while they accompanied them. They set the whole thing up and cleared all their gear away with the minimum of fuss and were charming at all times. We would thoroughly recommend them for your party if you want it to swing. "

" Soul Revival took the Ranelagh by storm. They are a fine bunch of Musicians and thoroughly nice guys and their selection of material had the place jumping. The audience ranged in age from spotty kids to sceptical old gits who had seen it all before and everybody had a ball. If you need a band to light up your evening then look no further. "
