Soul Desire are a 5 piece party band based in Edinburgh. They were formed and remain to this day a band determined to answer the question “What if…?” That’s the short version, in more detail, having first-hand experience of what it takes to perform at the highest level in terms of production, musical arrangement and of course performance, the “What if…?” seeks to apply the same attention to detail to a covers band with the focus fixed firmly on giving the target audience (i.e. packed dance floor) a night they won’t forget anytime soon.
The highest priority is given to meeting the challenge of being sufficiently different so as to stand out from the norm without being in any way pretentious or over-indulgent. Meeting the requirement of such a challenge requires a band made up of like-minded individuals, experts in their field and most importantly, free from egos.
