Soul 9 Yards

Auckland based Soul 9 Yards have been performing their mix of Soul, Motown and 90s hip hop and r’n’b since 2017. The band perform soulful cuts by the likes of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and Amy Winehouse, combining Allana Goldsmith’s honey dipped vocals with a backing band of some of Auckland’s baddest cats. Their music is raw, real and authentic, with plenty of room for every member to improvise and go where the songs lead them. You can expect to hear classic songs rearranged and presented in a whole new way, with a vibe that is uniquely their own. Soul 9 Yards offer a range of line ups to suit any event.

Work To Do


What’s a party without awesome sounds? Soul 9 yards had my friends and family up dancing from early on and I loved seeing my mum dancing with everyone all night long. Allana wow what a voice so beautiful and the setlist couldn’t have been more perfect for this 50 year girl! Busy night and I just wish I could go back and replay it all over, everyone commented what an awesome band! Please pass on my thanks for making my celebration so memorable. Thanks also to findaband what a great website when trying to choose from all the amazing talent, thank you for organising it all for me.
