Atlantic Soul - Soul and Motown Band in Scotland


Atlantic Soul Showband Scotland


Atlantic Soul Showband is a specialist in the Wedding and Corporate scene. They have travelled the length and breadth of the country, having played in just about every major hotel and venue in Scotland, England and abroad.

They are a fully scaleable showgroup (from seven-piece down to a duo) whose unique style has seen them tour throughout the UK and internationally. They have starred at a wide variety of functions, from small intimate private parties to large corporate events and dinner dances, and from holiday park theme nights to large open air festivals. Prestigious weddings and Corporate Events are their speciality.

Atlantic Soul Showband performs the whole spectrum of dance music from the 50's through to present day chart hits, as well as classic soul, motown and disco. For weddings, a short optional ceilidh set can be incorporated if required, as well as additional ceremony music and additional small jazz combo during dinner. Their integrated Disco is always incorporated into the package, unless you have your own DJ booked.

They have earned a fantastic reputation as one of the most exciting showbands performing in the UK! With up to four powerful vocalists (including both male and female lead vocals in any size lineup), a superb four-piece rhythm section and live brass with their gorgeous female sax player, Atlantic Soul work as a seven-piece down to a two-piece band.

Atlantic Soul gives it's own special treatment to hits from all decades, with costume changes, choreographed dance routines and excellent state-of-the-art sound, light and multimedia systems to make a great all round entertainment spectacular, one that audiences remember for a very long time. The past 50 years have given us some of the best music of all time. Atlantic Soul has worked their magic to bring you their sensational show, keeping the best of the greatest music very much alive.

They have Public Liablity insurance and all their equipment is PAT tested.

Help! How do I play these video or music files?

VIDEOS

If you cannot see the flash movie above, then you first need to establish whether you can see any Flash Movies on your computer. Go to the Photobucket page here and see if any of the Flash Movies will play. If they do not, then you either need to enable Javascript in your Internet Browser or/or update your version of Adobe Flash Player by clicking here. This will take you to the Adobe downloads page where you can download the update for your operating system. It's only a one minute download and will enhance your viewing pleasure while on the internet.

However, try enabling Javascript in your Internet Browser first. If you have a POP UP BLOCKER enabled, then disable it. If Javascript is disabled, the web page will you a message saying that you do not have Flash installed or you need upgrade your version of Flash, which may not be true.

If you have Internet Explorer 7 and can't get any Flash Movies to work, then download and try the much superior web browser called Firefox here.

MUSIC SAMPLES

It's easy! Just double-click on the link and Windows Media Player (or whatever music player you have installed on your PC) should run and start playing the music file within a few seconds. Make sure you have your speakers plugged in and switched on.

If you have a Broadband internet connection (which is very fast), then the music files should play very smoothly straight away.

However, if you have a standard "Dialup" connection (your modem dials up to allow you to make the connection to the internet) then you will find the music file stops and starts all the time. This is because your PC music player is trying to stream or play the music as it downloads to your hard drive but your internet connection isn't fast enough to play the music smoothly.

If that is what is happening to you, then all you have to do is let the music stagger through once (it is downloading as this is happening) and then it will play at full speed after that. You can then listen to the the music file as many times as you want.

Alternatively, you can download the mp3 first and play it from your Hard Drive. To do this, just right-click on the mp3 link and select "Save target as" from the drop-down menu.

You can then save the mp3 file to your Desktop or any other folder of your choice.

When the mp3 file is completely downloaded, double-click on it and it will play immediately on Windows Media player or whatever music player you have installed.

We hope that has helped you. If not, just give us a ring on 0141 577 6604 and we'll talk you through it.

We're here to help you in any way we can.
