"The Soulshine Band were absolutely fantastic at our wedding. They were energetic, fun and had everyone dancing from start to finish.
I am so pleased that we hired them - James and his band are true professionals and a must-have at any party or occasion."

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the great job you did last Saturday at our wedding. We are so pleased with everything...from the songs that you performed and the energy that you put in. You had the dancefloor packed the whole night and everyone was commenting how brilliant you are. We couldn't have asked for more. Will definitely be recommending you to everyone.

"Hey Sasha, now that we are back from our honeymoon, without wasting more time we would want to say a big thank you to your entire band and you for making our wedding day so special. Right from the very first dance to the end, you were oh so astounding.

Many of our friends and families expressed how amazed they were by your performance, and how thoroughly they enjoyed and loved it. You made the evening so perfect for all of us, and I will not at all be amazed if we get loads of requests in future to share your details so that you can rock other events.

Thank You once again for the super amazing time, and we never will have second thoughts on recommending you to any one who is in search of a band for any similar events."
