The band is based in Bristol and mainly travel within the South West of England, but is willing to travel anywhere in the UK.
The Delectables are a top end, five-piece Funk and Soul band whose varied repertoire takes in everything and everyone from 50s favourites to modern day floor-fillers. This includes luminaries of the genre such the mighty James Brown and Aretha Franklin and all the way up to The Killers and Pharrell Williams, so there is something for everyone!
This Bristol band has experience playing a number of different genres, with individuals band members having played with such varied acts as Jools Holland and Nigel Kennedy and have taken these influences on board, honing their set to any specific requirements. They are happy to learn songs if requested for a first dance for example.
This group of exceptional professional musicians has played or collaborated with some big names including Malachai, Kasabian, Super Furry Animals, Noel Gallagher, Kelis, Raphael, Saadiq, KT Tunstall, Tom Jones, Zane Low, Giles Peterson, Jools Holland, Pee Wee Ellis, Jean Toussaint, Marcella Detroit, Carleen Anderson, Lee Ryan, Herbal T, Wax, Nigel Kennedy, Lack Of Afro, U2, Craig Charles, The Haggis Horns, and Hans Zimmer to name a few! Most of the musicians are artists in their own right and between them have toured all over the world working on some stunning projects with world-class talent. The musicianship is clear to see when these players come together.
Molly and The Delectables performed at our wedding earlier this month in their full 7-piece form and were absolutely incredible; the presence of the full band is unreal and perfectly compliments Molly's voice which is next level (pretty sure she wouldn't even need a microphone).
I think the true sign of a good band is the reaction from the guests - some of our guests who would never normally be seen on a dance floor were up and moving, and the praise was universal. I don't normal...

We cannot thank you enough. We booked The Delectables for our wedding in May this year. We searched high and low for the perfect band as music means so much to us. We found them in Bristol and they travelled all the way to Looe, Cornwall to make it happen. We had a 7 piece band and they were phenomenal. The dance floor was packed, the music was amazing and they looked great too, friendly and professional. It went so smoothly and I cannot thank you enough. The comments we had from guests were nothing but high praise, you went down so well! Plus your dress was fab Molly! Thanks for helping to make the best day of our lives! Xx

Just to say a huge thank you for a fantastic performance from Molly and the band on Saturday for our wedding. Molly and the band were brilliant - everyone we spoke to on the day and since was raving about them. You really helped to make it a special day for us. We particularly appreciated the flexibility to change the set list. Thank you. Leila and Stephen.

We booked Molly and The Delectables to play at our wedding in June and it was one of the best decisions we made. They helped us tailor the set to include some of our favourite numbers in the run-up and sounded absolutely mind-blowing on the day. The dance floor was packed all evening and we had so many people say how amazing they were (loads of our guests are in bands so know their stuff)! It ended the day on an absolute high and you should just go ahead and book them right now! Thank you guys!

It was amazing to dance the night away with The Delectables on our wedding day and so professional to deal with leading up to the big day. I can't thank you all enough. You really did raise the roof!!! Xx

Molly and The Delectables performed at a clients wedding this past weekend. As a wedding planner, it was great to work with such a flexible and hardworking band. Speeches rather overran and Molly and the guys were able to not only set up in record time but also made suggestions of how we could alter the sets to make the best of the rest of the evening. Most importantly they got all the guests up dancing. Great work - thank you!

Hi Molly You said I should wait until I'd heard you and the band before saying thank you. Well, now I'm saying a huge thank you for a fabulous evening at Bryan and Sarah's wedding on Saturday. You judged the first dance just right. And you were right. Hearing you live was 1000x better than YouTube. You were great. Thank you so much. Michael

What a FANTASTIC BAND. We went and saw them in Bristol to see if they would be good as our wedding band. They had us dancing that night, so we booked them immediately for our wedding. We had Molly and a pianist for the service, and they fitted in perfectly. We went for the 6 piece band for the party and LOVED it. They had the whole wedding dancing, and comments the next day were mostly about how brilliant the band was. We'll continue to try and go and see them every now and again around Bristol. Can't recommend them enough! Thank you The Supers. P&C

Molly and her band performed at Taunton and Pickeridge GC 125 party. They were excellent, they provided a fantastic mix of tunes that perfectly suited the evening and got the members up in record time and they stayed on the dance floor for the rest of the evening. The feedback from all guests was amazing and all in all we had a brilliant evening. As with all events timings got pushed and Molly was very accommodating in shifting the times of the sets being played. We would certainly book the band again and would highly recommend.
