Full Description
Here at Arena Collective we have gathered a range of extremely talented creatives who work together to provide incredible package options for our clients. Operating out of the small but prolifically creative hub that is Brighton, most of the talented members of our roster know each other already and have worked together previously. This means that while you avoid the daunting task of having to communicate with and organising for a large number of independent freelancers, our roster can work together rather than separately to provide an easy going and streamlined service so that nothing gets in the way of the music, photography and videography being as good as they possibly can be. Having all the creatives reachable in one channel of communication takes the weight off our clients' shoulders so that they can get on with enjoying their event. We are very passionate about only working with the highest quality creatives, and being creatives ourselves we are also passionate about not exploiting the creatives we represent. This means we attract a diverse range of amazingly talented artists. Whether you are looking for a sophisticated matinee jazz band with a traditional photographer, or a tongue in cheek indie band together with an alternative photographer, we have you covered!

We cannot thank The Soultastics enough!
We cannot thank The Soultastics enough for performing at our wedding last week. You picked up on the tone of the event perfectly. Your swing and post-modern renditions were inspired and you had all ages on the dance floor; we really felt it was the music that brought everyone together last week. Phil dancing with his 95 year old grandmother to ͚Fly Me to The Moon͛ was a particularly special moment. Absolutely everything we had wished for! The music in the afternoon was the BEST surprise!! I loved it and had no idea until I walked into the garden party that Phil had arranged it. We had been listening to a Parisian Cafe-style playlist for a while with the intention of having that as background music in the afternoon so I was over the moon when I heard a few numbers from that playlist being performed live. They were brilliant and created a really relaxed, cool vibe for the Drinks Reception. I know Pangdean have mentioned to my parents how much they loved the trio too. Thank you so much for suggesting them and for helping Phil to organise such a great surprise; he said you were so quick and happy to help with something so last minute and it made all the difference! Having live musicians at what was already a musical feast of a day, really made it for us! Please pass on our huge thanks to them. Thank you too for performing Let There Be Love for our first dance. Again, to have it performed live by such talented performers meant so much more than dancing to the recording. We spoke to many guests during the evening who thought you were brilliant and some who were just happy watching you all make music together!! You were the perfect entertainment for the evening, thank you! We͛re very happy listening to your music on Spotify but I hope we get the opportunity to hear the band play live again one day.

The Soultastics are just amazing
The Soultastics are just amazing. All night our guests were telling us how great they thought the band were and everyone was dancing and having a fantastic time. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with in the lead up to our day, and helped with lots of requests we had to make our day more special, including a flawless performance for our first dance. Their performance was full of energy and fun, and they put together two great sets of music for us. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Peaches and Cream were absolutely amazing!
We literally had the best day. Peaches and cream were absolutely amazing! So helpful, professional and polite on arrival. They then put on the most amazing performance resulting in our dance floor being constantly full. The mixture of songs worked so well and everyone had the best time thanks to them. I would totally recommend them to everyone and am hoping to use them in the future. My birthday is coming up soon and I would love to have them for that. They really were amazing.

Easily the best band I have ever seen and heard at a wedding!
We had a fantastic experience working with Arena Collective to organise the band for our wedding. For us, the music was one of the most important things to get right. Arena Collective were fantastic from the get go. Arranging a band went from a seemingly impossible task to stress-free as soon as we engaged with them. We had a few specific requirements - such as needing a recording of the first dance in advance to practice a choreographed routine to, and a band that could do justice to all our favourite songs (mainly Prince's back catalogue). We felt that Arena Collective really listened to us and took the time to understand exactly what we wanted. We were introduced to Saturday Night Diva, and were blown away by how talented they were. To inspire us, they provided us with an extensive listing of great songs which we could pick from, and were happy to take requests as well. Everything went perfectly on the day- they were entirely professional, arriving in good time to set up for a tightly organised schedule. The performance was outstanding- they were lively and entertaining, and all exceptionally talented musicians. They absolutely nailed every song, and our guests loved them. Easily the best band I have ever seen and heard at a wedding! Overall, I would recommend Arena Collective without any hesitation. They provide a top class service connecting you to amazingly talented musicians that will suit your needs perfectly
