The soul agents

Top rock and roll dance band

 

The Soul Agents are a top 7 piece function band, predominantly playing ’60s classic pop songs, early rock and roll, together with some soul and Motown.

The band was formed 25 years ago as the Joint Soul Agents - a joke based on the fact that the original members were all related to the property business.  Guitarist Richard Posner and bass player Tony Abrahams are two of the original band members.  They were at school together in the 1960s and played music together even then, so you might think that they should be getting it right by now!

A lifelong love of the music and the joy of playing with like minded people has stood the test of time, and in addition to playing at hundreds of parties, weddings, anniversaries and '60s themed nights over the years, the band have given their services to many charitable events, helping to raise thousands of pounds for good causes.

The band continues to thrive and enjoy playing songs that we love - some of which we first heard and learnt to play nearly 50 years ago.  2016 sees the 25th anniversary of the band’s formation, and we have no plans to give up just yet!

 

The Soul Agents line up comprises:-

Tony Abrahams – bass guitar

Richard Posner – guitar & vocals

Gary Laub – vocals

Lena Mortimer – vocals

Paul Stone – guitar & keyboards

David Barnett - percussion & vocals

Gerry Hunt – saxophone


A few kind words from some of our happy friends and clients .....

 

Hello Richard, 

Did I ever tell you how fabulous The Soul Agents are at just being the icing on top of the cake at any party/celebration?  Thank you, thank you.  Andrew and I had just our very best possible day celebrating our 50 years of marriage and, I think you realised, we had such a terrific evening.

We so enjoyed each individual member of the Soul Agents and really do appreciate the time and effort that you obviously put into in setting up and breaking down, as well as rehearsing and performing.

Our friends in their 80s danced almost as much as we did!  As you saw, our three granddaughters also had a great time dancing along with everyone in between 10 and 85 years young.

Please share this with everyone and we hope you can perform at our 60th!
Hugs and thanks,

Sharon and Andrew                                    50th wedding anniversary party


Dear Tony & Paul

Thank you to both of you, Lena, Gary and all the boys in the band – it was an absolutely fantastic evening.  The icing on the cake was that we made just over £1,100 which will be put to very good use in the Care Homes.

Hi Tony,

Phew – just recovered!!!

Please pass on my thanks to all the members of The Soul Agents for a really great performance at The Captain's Dinner last night.   Just love you guys.  You really did me proud and I've had loads of calls today to say what a great evening it was, and how refreshing to have a brilliant live band instead of a DJ.   Thanks for all your hard work.

Thank you again so much and hope I have the pleasure of listening to you again soon.

Hi Paul,

On behalf of all the committee, many thanks to The Soul Agents for Sunday - so many people complimented us on how good your band was.

Everyone really enjoyed themselves and we have had many compliments - once again many thanks.  We will definitely be in touch regarding next year.

Hi Richard,

I just wanted to thank you and the band so much for last night.  You were great!  So many people came up to me to say how much they had enjoyed your wide range of music and how good you were.   I'm just sorry that I didn't dance that much.  Too busy going round trying to talk to everyone!!

Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the band.

Dear friends,

On behalf of everyone at St Luke’s Hospice I would to thank you for all of your help at this year's Run Wembley.  The event was a success with over 180 runners, great music from The Soul Agents, super food and overall it was a brilliant day.

With your help on registration, catering, music and marshalling the event ran smoothly and I couldn’t be more grateful for your help.  So far we have raised over £6,000 and we are well on course to reaching out target of £7,000.

Thank you once again for your help and I hope you see you all again next year.

Paul,

Once again a massive thank you from us all for yours and The Soul Agents time and support in helping us to raise a brilliant £1677 for Cancer Research through Harrow Relay at our Back To The '60's gig last night.

Your band and your music were amazing and everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves having a great evening, and all for a good cause!

Unfortunately, in my rush to get cleared up afterwards, I only got to say a personal thank you to some of the members of the band, so can I ask you to pass on my/our heartfelt thanks for an excellent evening - you all really did go "above and beyond"!
