Soul Purpose

Dublin, Ireland


Soul Purpose has cultivated an esteemed reputation as one of the best Soul bands in the country. We love to hear from people who've enjoyed our shows so If you've seen Soul Purpose live and have something to say please get in touch!

Here's what folks are saying about us..





After seeing your showcase we knew we were in for a great night of tunes but have to say you all surpassed our expectations and kept everyone on the dancefloor all night - many of whom would be pretty picky about their tunes!

Friends, family and the staff at Fallon & Byrne were all raving about you and we wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend you to anyone looking for a real soulful, fun, band for any occasion!

Thanks again, Ed & Fiona!

P.S. Matthew J appreciated the cameo on the drums immensely!

It's one thing to have the pleasure of hearing a talented band at a wedding. It's another thing entirely when that band delivers such a show-stopping performance that guests ask for the band's touring schedule so they can catch another show. With a great mix of classic and modern songs, you appealed to everyone and kept the dance floor full. Such incredible talent displayed. Beyond just the music, we received many astounded remarks about your ability to play such a lengthy set and still close with the same if not more energy than you opened with. Your performance was definitely one of the highlights of our wedding.  Thank you and we certainly look forward to seeing you perform again!
Ed & Julie,

Guys!!! What a performance on Friday night!! Thank you so much for playing at our wedding and accommodating our first song / dance! You guys were superb! Dance floor was full for the nyt!! Thanks again!
Ian & Daire,

Just wanted to say we had a fantastic night the other weekend; all our guests were raving about how good you were. Nothing but great things and high recommendations for you, your professionalism and of course your fantastic sound.
Darrell & Anita,

BEST. WEDDING. BAND. EVER! Unreal folks! Everyone raved about you and the floor didn't stop! ROLLIN!

Where do we start..... Thank you so much for an amazing performance Friday night the dance floor was jumping all night long. One of our guests is a music teacher and wanted to run away with you guys!! She was raving about how technically brilliant you were and another guest was annoyed she had to sit down and talk to people during the performance!!! Thanks again for everything!
Claire & Shane

What can we say?!  You guys made our night, it was just brilliant from start to finish, we knew it was going to be good and we were going to dance our socks off but to have all our guests so blown away as well was amazing.  People were literally saying they had never ever seen the like of you at a wedding before so we were very smug indeed!
Lee & Anna

Thank you sooo much for coming to our Charity Event last night in Greystones Rugby Club in aid of "The Support Africa Foundation".  Your presence was key to the success of the night and it did not disappoint, you are an amazing band, your love of your music genre shines through every moment you are on stage. Thank you so much guys for a great night and we look forward to following you around the venues whenever we can!
Suzanne & Alex

Just a quick line to thank you so much for playing at our wedding at Dundrum House Hotel! It was amazing and I know this may sound like a cliche at this stage but so many people were saying how great you guys were and that they loved every minute of your set. We are big funk, disco, motown and soul fans so it was great to have you. Keep up the great work!
Kay & Dave

It was so refreshing to have a 'real' band at our wedding - not a cheesy wedding band like so many others we've heard. Music is really important to us so we didnt want just any old sound and you were just class. From the start to finish, you were amazing - it's nearly two weeks later now and I still have guests texting, facebooking and calling me to rave about you. I'm sure you played over your time for us and we really appreciate how you interacted with the crowd and kept everyone on their feet. Thank you again.
Sarah & Paul

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for a fantastic performance at our Wedding in Cloghan Castle in September, you were everything we had hoped for and more.Lots of people commented on how professional you all were and that you weren't a typical "wedding" band which is why, of course, we wanted you! I can't believe you played until after 2am! What a great night we had. I really hope to see Soul Purpose play down in the West of Ireland again soon, Galway could really do with some soul!
Karen & Anthony

“Making Memories…” - I just wanted to post about how fab you are!! It's our wedding anniversary so we were just listening to you guys on the website and it brought back such fab, fun memories of our wedding in Kenmare, Co Kerry. The dinner ran way over at our wedding so Soul Purpose ended up going on AFTER they were supposed to have finished! No complaints and a full, amazing show. The dance floor was packed for the entire night - everybody, young and old was up there. Everybody said the best night ever and that was made by you guys! Thank you so much!!
Peter & Elaine

Thanks so much you made our day. Everybody we talked to said it was the best wedding ever, you guys had a lot to do with that. Thanks so much you were so professional. Needless to say there were plenty of people at our wedding that want you to play theirs! We will pass on all your details and recommend you to anyone we know. Thanks again.
Michael and Sinead

Thank you all so much for the wonderful music you all played the night of our wedding. I didn't leave the dance floor all night. All the guests thought ye were amazing and loved all the music you played. Such a great night :) Thanks so much for making our day very special indeed :)
Honor & Colm

We're back from our short honeymoon now and just wanted to say thank you again for playing at our wedding. You really were amazing and our friends and family were blown away by your performance, so thanks for playing a significant part in the best day of both of our lives. Best wishes for you all and the band.
Justin & Karen.

Thank you for playing for us. Everyone loved you and were still talking about you over the weekend. You made our night and we can't thank you enough.

Just wanted to drop a wee note to say a HUGE thank you for rocking our wedding on the 8th Sept in Boyne Hill House. From the jazz duo in the gardens to you guys in full swing later that night, you were fantastic - lots & lots of fabulous feedback from the guests - so professional, so talented and so easy to deal with - thanks a million for filling our floor all night long :)
Rita & Alan

Thank you so much for everything. You were by far the best decision we made for our big day. Everyone from my 16yr old brother to my 80yr old grandad raved about you. Thanks a million.

Thank you so much for a sensational performance at our wedding in Barberstown Castle. Ever since the wedding people having been asking me about you and commenting on how brilliant you were. Again thank you so much for the wonderful performance and I will be recommending you to everyone!!
Niamh & Simon

I would just like to say how delighted we were with your performance on May 5th. It was very cold but you all put life and soul into the party. Everyone was blown away by your performance on the evening..... and the good humour and positive vibes.
Jim & Muriel

Just wanted to say that you were fantastic at our wedding we loved every minute of your set. All the guests said how much they'd enjoyed the music and that they'd never danced so much.
Danny & Eimear

Thank you all for doing such a perfect job, we'll remember that one for sure. I don't think I've ever danced as much as I did on Saturday. Everyone loved it and were very impressed with you guys.I knew you'd be great. Thank you all so much.
Andy & Caroline

We're not sure what to say to you guys... Words fail us. We suppose that best compliment we can give you is that we know everyone who was at our wedding could not get over how exceptional the band was... put it this way, your performance that night is still being talked about and will be talked about for years. It was a true honour to have Soul Purpose be our wedding band.
Ryan & Louise

What a performance! Pitch perfect professional band, a smouldering songstress, you were fantastic and went down a storm at our wedding in Dromoland, people are still talking about you. We couldn't recommend Soul Purpose highly enough, consummate professionals and pleased even the most picky musos.
Oonagh & Dave

We don't ever make recommendations for bands, but we'll recommend Soul Purpose!
Management, Coolbawn Quay

Hey guys, had to look you up to say your AMAZING.... You played my brother's wedding on Saturday... Wow wow wow... What an atmosphere, friends and family couldn't stop saying how brill you were, we all had an amazing time ♥♥♥

Every one of our guests were blown away by the high level of performance and professionalism you all showed. We have done a lot of parties in the last few years, but everyone agrees, this was the best yet! We'll never be able to top it and, again, this was down to you guys; so, from the heart, thank you.
Marie-Louise & Marcus
