Superbad Soul Section are a superb band! We love to boogie here at Trade Me and they had all the tunes to keep everyone on the dance floor. Great sounds and such a lovely crew. Thanks so much, we’ll be in touch for our next party! Steph Lumsden – Event Coordinator, Trade Me.


We hired Superbad Soul Section for our wedding, and we were very impressed. Superbad learned new songs that we requested (lots of soul and dancey numbers), and also, a special slowed down version of The Way You Make Me Feel for our first dance, which was a lovely surprise. They sounded awesome and had us dancing all evening. Additionally, the guys are very professional - their communication with us before the wedding was great, they came to set up and sound check early in the day before guests arrived as requested, and generally a great bunch of lads. We highly recommend them.
