On Sept 2019, we played an awesome wedding of a music loving couple, Fiona and Ollie at one of London's best wedding venues, Syon Park in Brentwood, TW8.
The couple booked the Flo Collective sax and keys duo for their afternoon reception to start off the festive atmosphere. The duo played a mix of chilled ballads, mid-tempo jazz and soul just outside the Great Conservatory for aboout 2 x 30 minutes. The guys then had a break while the guests were seated inside, then came back in the evening with the main 6 piece motown soul wedding band line-up.
The 6 piece band consisted of female vocals, keys player, guitarist, bassist, drummer and sax player. They played 2 x 60 minutes right after speeches and the band finished playing at around 11pm followed by a 30 min DJ set from Flo Collective's sound engineer.
Fiona and Ollie requested "My Destiny" by Lionel Ritchie for their first dance. Everyone sang and danced the night away. The band played all the very best of Motown, Soul, Disco and Funk music like "Signed Sealed Delivered" by Stevie Wonder, "Proud Mary" by Tina Turner, "September" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Thinking Of You" by Sister Sledge and much more.
Check out the video below for a raw smart phone footage and our actual setlist below!

This glasshouse building was built in the 19th Century and it housed exotic plants all over the world. We had lights, smoke machine and mirror ball on the night that brought this historic building to life!
If you're getting married at Syon Park and want to book a motown wedding band, please contact us! The venue has a sound limiter so it's best to book a band who has played there before and knows how to work under noise limitations without compromising on the party vibe.
Big thanks to Fiona and Ollie for booking the Flo Collective!
