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.
Soul Desire’s current line-up of permanent members are;
Duggy Coulter on bass, keys and vocals has 20 years of experience gained on the road and recording with some of Scotland’s finest.
Fiona Lynch on vocals has been performing throughout the UK for the past 7 years with various function bands and has sung at many prestigious events and venues throughout this time including the premier of the Disney Pixar movie ‘Brave’ in Edinburgh, The Scottish Tourism Awards Ceremony at Wembley London and The Robert Burns charity events in Kiev, Ukraine.
Mike Kearney on vocals and keys who has been playing music professionally for ten years.
Robert Minns on guitar, keyboards and vocals whom is one of the country’s most inventive and flexible musicians.
Davide L Rinaldi on drums and percussion who has had the pleasure to play many styles of music including Pop, Rock, Jazz. Funk, Latin and Reggae with some major Italian acts, function bands and various independent artists.

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
