The DeeVines are Manchester based but frequently play all across Greater Manchester, Yorkshire and the North West of England. The DeeVines are happy to travel throughout the UK
The DeeVines are an energetic 5 or 6-piece band based in Manchester. They have considerable experience as musicians and performers and are ideal for wedding receptions, corporate events, parties or any other party type functions all over the North West and further afield if required.
Their unique approach to every individual event helps them to ensure every possible requirement is met. This helps to maximise the band’s live performance and optimise the overall experience, creating seamless and memorable entertainment.
The DeeVines play an accessible and lively soul based set, with a wide repertoire from 60's Motown/Soul (Supremes/Aretha Franklin), 70's Funk & Disco (Trammps/Earth Wind & Fire), 80's classics (Chakka Khan/Jocelyn Brown), 90's RnB (Robin S/Bobby Brown), right up to modern pop from Beyonce and Bruno Mars. Everything is performed live - no pre-recorded backing tracks - just a great performance packed with energy.
The DeeVines have a professional approach to what they do and pride themselves on a high quality and friendly performance. They are fully self sufficient providing your event with everything from a quality PA system, lighting rig, transport, a virtual DJ program to play music to be played before between and after their live sets (fully mixed, no gaps between songs) and the option of both formal and informal stage wear.
We booked The Divine Soul Collective for our wedding and they were just incredible! Very professional, amazing vocalist and they sounded fantastic! We also asked if they could perform a song for our first dance which wasn’t on there usual set list and they did it for us without hesitation and it was beautiful. We would definitely recommend them if you’re looking for live music and a fantastic atmosphere on your wedding day! Thank you so much for being a huge part of our special day!
Really can't thank this band enough, they did a fantastic job at our wedding on the 17th aug 2019, all our guests had a fantastic time and everyone commented on how brill you was, you got lots of people up having fun dancing so I would highly recommend this band with out a doubt, if we need a band in the future I will definitely be booking them again, so if your after a band for your occasion then get these booked, thanks again Eddie and all Ur band members from me and Richard
We hired The Divine Soul Collective for our wedding in June 2019 and we honestly could not be happier with the experience. We found the band to be extremely professional throughout the entire planning process and with a reassuring attention to detail, which meant we had full faith in them to deliver on the night – particularly after watching them perform live in Didsbury beforehand. When our big day finally arrived, they were absolutely fantastic and played two one-hour sets that had our guests on the dancefloor all evening, providing a real atmosphere to the night. The set-lists were varied enough to please all ages, and our guests genuinely commented afterwards about how they made the evening. If you are looking for a wedding band, The Divine Soul Collective are a perfect choice.
Just watched them tonight in The Red Lion Withington it was amazing! (2 crazy girls in the corner!) you were fab! loved you!
The Divine Soul Collective were really easy to work with and gave a fantastic performance at our wedding. They got everything set in a marquee in a difficult to find location without us being there. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone.
The Divine Soul Collectiveplayed at our wedding on 14 July 2018. They were absolutely unreal. They rocked the barn, got everyone on the dance floor and smashed out two amazing sets. The feedback from all our guests was incredible. We've already recommended their services to two lots of friends who are getting married next year as we'd love to see them again. Their website is great, their song selection on point (no cheese, just tunes), the girls belt out the vocals and they're all quality musicians individually as well as collectively! Can't praise them enough!

Thank you The Divine Soul Collective for helping to make our wonderful wedding day! From the guitar solo during the ceremony, the acoustic set in the afternoon and the full funk and soul band in the evening to get the party started. Even an England quarter final didn't put them off! Everyone commented on what a fab job you all did- my personal favourite was the beautiful job you made of our first dance, with Proud Mary a close second. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend you xx
Thank you so much for your amazing performance at our wedding. Both the acoustic set in the afternoon and the full band sets in the evening were incredible. The dance floor was constantly packed, the songs you performed and your talented musicians and singers really made the evening special. From initially inquiring until the day of the wedding, you have been so helpful and very professional. Genuinely couldn't have asked for a better band. Thanks again! Steph and Mark
Thank you soooo much for making our day even more perfect. It's so hard finding something for everyone music wise at a wedding but you absolutely nailed it and had us all dancing all night! In fact I think I pretty much had to be removed from the dance floor when it was home time! You are all super talented and I can't thank you enough for making our evening so amazing. Much love x
Paul & Chloe Harrison
I wanted to write you a quick note to say a huge huge thank you for being AMAZING. The Divine Soul Collective smashed it at our wedding in Penrith. We had 150 guests who barely stepped foot off the dancefloor while the band played. We had chanting for encores when they tried to leave, and since they're so up for it they came back and killed it for one more song. If I could do it again they'd be top of the list every time.
Jonathan & Sarah Hawkins
Thank you for playing at our wedding! You were all incredible, I've had lots of enquiries ever since! We loved every minute of your sets, absolutely amazing! Thanks again!
Mike and Lauren
The fabulous Divine Soul Collective played for my 50th birthday in a marquee, it was an awesome night, everyone commented how good the band was, had all my guests up dancing, even the Cowboys!! Thanks to Dean and the crew, quick set-up and an even quicker breakdown. My only gripe it was over all too soon!!
Thank you so much for helping us create such a fantastic wedding day. The dance floor was packed from start to finish! The music was amazing- fun and upbeat and everyone raved about how good you guys were. Also, your communication was excellent all the way through the lead up and we were so grateful for your prompt and professional responses to our endless queries. You knew all the right questions to ask to make sure everything went without a hitch- Thank you just doesn't cover how appreciative we are!
As a Student Nurse organising our Graduation ball for over 200, with a very wide age range, the music selection from The Divine Soul Collective suited perfectly. Having the stress of Uni, applying for jobs & organising this event things could have gone wrong, but they were in touch from the start, understanding and helpful throughout, reassuring me when I got a little stressed with organising this event. On the night the band turned up on time as promised, set up, sound checked and made sure their sets flowed perfectly with other things which were going on throughout the evening. I have no complaints, & neither did I receive any. The DeeVines are the PERFECT band if you are looking for a professional live act to suit all ages & tastes in music.
Firstly we want to say a massive thank you to the band (who played out our wedding in August) – you were brilliant. All of our guests had good things to say about the music and you simply made our evening reception. The range of music you played pleased guests of all ages and the fact that you learnt and played our first song was so good of you. If you are looking for a wedding band - do not hesitate in booking these guys, they are absolutely brilliant! After much searching and deliberation we came across them and we are so pleased that we did. If you are in any doubt whatsoever or a bit unsure, just contact them and they will let you know any upcoming gigs they have so you can go down and see them – we did this and it completely sealed the deal for us – we had to have them at our wedding! We can’t recommend The Divine Soul Collective highly enough. Thank you so much for being part of our big day!
Rachel Samba-Hayes and Anthony Samba-Hayes
The Divine Soul Collective played our wedding very recently and every one commented on how awesome they were. We wanted to say a massive thank you, you were brilliant. Anyone thinking about hiring a band we cannot recommend them highly enough!
Stephen and Zophia Jayne Fincham
The Divine Soul Collective performed at our Wedding Reception and they got the Party started! Perfect set list covering all era's, performing songs that everyone loves and real dancefloor filler's! After speaking to guests after the event, the feedback for the Divine Soul Collective was really positive and we would recommend them for any party occasion! The connection between the band & audience was electric and made for a great atmosphere, they would of played all night if the hotel management would of let them!! Big thanks to them, the cherry on top of an amazing day to remember forever! x
Chris & Rebecca Kelly
We used this wonderful band for your wedding day in July and we could not have wished for more. They were utterly professional from the first email to the last wire being packed up and kept our guests hugely entertained all night. I’ve had a few complaints – nobody could get enough time to get to the bar as the band played back-to-back floor-fillers! We wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend these guys to anyone. The made our reception absolutely incredible and we have had endless compliments on their talents. Book them!”
Sarah and James Darwent
We were delighted with The Divine Soul Collective performance at our wedding. The dancefloor was full of smiles and we think each guest threw some shapes at some point - everybody had a fantastic time! We would happily and highly recommend this band to anybody - they're all super talented and we definitely made the right choice having you them play for us. Thanks for putting on a fantastic show - we've had so many compliments about the music. Great job!
Stephen & Vicky Drew
The Devines performed on Valentines Day 2015 and were absolutely amazing! The dance floor was full all night and so many people commented on how brilliant they were. We can't recommend them enough - they were so accommodating and catered to our every need.
Sarah and Jonathan Smith
Thank you to and all the band you were all outstanding 10/10. I would recommend this band for any function ie wedding or any function I had guys these for New Year. Thank you once again hope to you back at Denton!
Steve Oshaughnessy - NYE Dinner Dance
Massive thanks to The Divine Soul Collective for turning our wedding into such a party! From the minute we saw these guys playing months before we knew they were the only band for us... You really have to see them play live. Totally professional in the build up, they even incorporated some of our song requests into their set list. So many of our guests commented upon their amazing performance on the night and asked where we managed to find them...the standing ovation and chants for one more song spoke for itself!! We strongly recommend checking out The Divine Soul Collective for your wedding or party!
David & Edna White
The Deevines joined us recently at an annual dinner and dance – and had people out of their seats in seconds. A really fun, friendly and flexible band. We have decided to book them again for this year….. everyone’s talking about seeing them again already! Cannot recommend enough!
Paul Elbourn - Event Organiser
Thank you all very much for making the slightly longer trip to Ripon than you normally would for a gig. The two sets were just outstanding, a great mix and even a few Xmas classics. Debbie's powerful vocals had the 100+ guests blown away. The best band the mess has had. We will be using you again I am sure.
Jeff Hood - WOs' & SGTs Mess 21 Engineer Regiment
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to The Deevines for playing at our wedding. The band were fantastic to work with from the initial booking to the wedding itself. I couldn't have asked for better! They were approachable and professional throughout. At our wedding they kept everyone dancing all night and I can't thank them enough for making our big day so amazing.
Thanks very much,
Nicole and Matt
We cannot thank you enough for such a fantastic evening at Hannah & Dan's wedding on Saturday. You were truly amazing and the dance floor was literally bouncing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have all been commenting on how great you were. Again Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.
The DeeVines.... oh my gosh! Absolutely incredible band! Could not have asked for a better band for our wedding. You guys really are amazing and so so talented! You had everyone up on their feet the whole time! Our first dance song you played was just amazing! We requested the fabulous Brand New Heavies tune and you did not fail!! You have made that even more special to us.
Thank you so so much for being a part of our very special day... you all absolutely nailed it!! Will definitely be seeing you again soon! Thank you so much!!
Sophia & Scott Lord - Wedding
The band were outstanding. I can't recommend them highly enough. Really got the party going at our wedding. Loved it. Thanks guys.
Sarah Wharry - Wedding
We were absolutely delighted with the performance that The DeeVines gave at our wedding. We knew they were a very special band as soon as we saw them, and they didn't disappoint. Every single member of the band is incredible at performing, and gives 100%. They made our first dance very memorable, and our guests had a brilliant time too, as the play list was perfect. Dean was great at serving as a point of contact for the band, and ensuring that everything is in place for the big day.
In summary, you can't do better than booking The DeeVines for your event or big day. Highly recommended!
Dan & Lou Duran Formaso - Wedding
We booked the DeeVines for our wedding in December 2016. We chose to have them play an acoustic set during the day, along with the full band in the evening. We are both huge music fans and have many friends who class themselves as aficionados, so we were mindful of booking a band that appealed to older family members and more serious music enthusiasts at the same time.
We chose the DeeVines and were not disappointed. Their blend of classic soul and funk music mixed with accessible but credible pop ensured that our guests were dancing all evening. Many of our guests even said that it was the best function band they have ever seen.
The whole journey, from initial communication through to learning our first dance and generally being lovely people of the day was perfect. They are a super talented bunch of guys and we would not hesitate to recommend them in future.
