Peter Warren is an accomplished international singer and Jazz guitarist. Peter has toured extensively in Japan, Southeast Asia, Indonesia, all over Australia, and USA, performing with soul singers in Mill Valley, San Francisco, California Club scene.

Accompanying him is Paul McDaniel, a renowned percussionist, who hails from the USA, and has performed in bands in Hollywood, on the east coast, and in Hawaii, Paul has also performed with many musicians locally over the past 15 years.


Their music ranges from classical jazz songs to eclectic instrumentals and popular Blues, Soul, and contemporary hits spanning the past four decades. This combination is ideal for ceremonies and pre-dinner drinks at weddings, corporate dinners, and background music for private parties, birthdays and wineries. We also can perform at ceremonies on the beach. We have developed a broad repertoire of carefully chosen material designed to suit any occasion. Our wealth of experience proves invaluable in the smooth running of an evening’s entertainment. The band will often work within the feel of the evening to lure interest from around the room. Couple that experience with one of the tightest bands around and you have a recipe for a night to remember. The repertoire, which is constantly growing, can be tailored to meet your needs for your individual occasion. We have a professional attitude and are reliable and sensitive to audience requests. The band is always well presented and conducts themselves in a professional manner at all times. Peter is happy to learn or write a song for your special occasion.

We have a competitive fee structure and negotiable terms. The current fee to engage the Soul Survivors for a basic southwest function starts at $950.00. This includes 3 x 50 minute sets spanning a 3 hour period. We can also perform an extra pre-dinner/cocktail 50min set of Jazz and easy listening groove, for an additional $200.00. The band will arrive, set up and sound check prior to your guests arriving and a wireless handheld microphone, PA and CD player will be made available for speeches and background music. You may even wish to have an mp3 player or CD programmed with the background music you want played and the band can simply connect it to the sound system. All lights, wireless mic and sound system are included.

We can also provide an extra musical service for those who wish to celebrate on into the night. Paul can DJ and mix up the dance tunes to your requirements after the band concludes. This service can be arranged and quoted upon request to best suit your needs and duration.

To avoid disappointment it is preferable to book the band at least 3-4mths prior to your function. However if your function is in the peak times you may need to secure your date 6-12mths prior.
