    Hi Sasha,

    Now that Sophie and I are back from our honeymoon, we'd like to say a huge thank you to you and the band for your amazing performance at the wedding. Everyone was raving about you once you'd finished and we wish we could have had you playing all night! The live music really brought the party to life and was a perfect accompaniment to the weather.

    We have had a lot of people ask us how we found out about you and we will whole-heartedly recommend you to anyone in search of a band.

    I hope you had a fantastic time celebrating your own wedding and wish you all the best for the future!

    Many thanks again for making the day so special.

    John and Sophie"

    Simon and Yasmin, 27th June, Bristol - Wedding

    Hi Sasha,

    We just wanted to say thank you again, it's really difficult choosing a wedding band as you can't see people live... your video looked good but although it was great speaking to you before to be honest it still seemed like a little bit of a gamble before hand....

    We shouldn't have worried! We could not have been happier with how it went, you guys were fantastic and our guests had an amazing time, the dancefloor was absolutely packed throughout. You brought so much energy to the night and it just flew by.

    I think some friends of ours (Mo and Katie) have already booked you, or are planning on booking you for their Wedding in October, so will see you again then!

    Best wishes,

    Simon and Yasmin"

    Mr and Mrs Gormley, Hilton Puckrup Hall, Tewksbury, May 2015, Wedding

    "Soulshine Band were an amazing band to have play at our wedding. The music and song covers were of an exceptionally high standard and everyone has commented on how much they enjoyed the band. They seem to have impressed all the different age groups that attended our wedding as well which we were so pleased about as that isn't always easy to do!

    Having the brass instruments was definitely worth it. I remember looking round at the end of the night and realising that EVERYONE was on the dance floor. They helped to create a fantastic atmosphere.

    Sasha was fantastic at adapting to the rather tiny space we had been given for the band by coming down on to the dance floor and singing amongst our guests which everyone has said was a great touch and really got people involved.

    The service leading up to our big day was laid back and friendly but always professional which was exactly what you want.

    We would completely recommend them for your wedding or event."

    Sarah & Russell Gormley.

    Fiona and James, Elmore Court, Gloucester, May 2015, Wedding

    "Soulshine joined us for our perfect wedding day in May 2015 at Elmore court. This was the part of the day which we hoped would add a real wow factor to our wedding. We were not disappointed!

    The band played three flawless sets, with Sasha and the band getting the dance floor moving and really entertaining the guests.

    The band were fun and energetic and we were able to chose a number of our favourite tunes to boogie the night away to. On a personal note the band were extremely accommodating learning our first dance song - making that moment unforgettable.

    If you want to have a brilliant party, this is the band to choose! Thanks so much from the new Vandenbergh-Harwood's!"

    David and Sophie Hawthorn, Wedding, July 2014, Gloucester

    Sasha, now that we're back from honeymoon we just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the band for helping to make our wedding such a great day, from the first dance to the encore you were brilliant.

    A number of our friends and families have said how much they enjoyed it and were amazed by how good you were, I think it really made the evening for everyone and I wouldn't be at all surprised if we don't get requests in future to pass on your details for future events.

    Thanks again, we won't hesitate to recommend you to any we know who is looking for a band for a similar event.

    Best regards Dave and Sophie

    Anthony Hudson, Wedding, Notts, August 2014

    As for the band, 5 stars is not enough!! Excellent vocals and energy. Really kept our guests entertained with a varied playlist and great interaction. Punctual, professional and accommodating as we were a bit late and just a wonderful performance. We would definitely recommend this band for fun loving soul shaking funky people. Many many thanks for being awesome!!!

    Sophie and Chris Hudson - July, 2014, Kent (Wedding)

    Dear Sasha and the band,

    Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for your role in our amazing wedding last weekend. More people than I can count told me that it was the best band they had ever seen at a wedding. All generations had a blast dancing along to the tunes, which is something we really wanted to achieve.

    Also, thanks so much for being patient and letting us go over time a little at the end. People were just having such a good time (mainly because the band music had been so happy-making) that no one was in any mood to stop. The sign of a great party! We ended up dancing round the camp fire in the field till the wee hours of the morning.

    Once again, thanks a million and I will be singing your praises whenever the topic of wedding bands come up with people in the future!

    Love Sophie and Chris x

    I'd like to thank you so much for the 3 amazing sets you performed at my 40th Birthday. If I had dreamed of the perfect party it would never have come close to the reality. The whole band were superb, slick and professional. Sasha's vocals were outstanding and the way she works the crowd is just incredible. Loved being able to perform Never too Much with you even at the last minute. You truly are the perfect band to get a party started but not so good at getting it finished!! We wanted you to play for another 3 hours! Hahah! Loved it so much, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my special day the most incredible evening. Feedback from all of the guests has been amazing and I have passed along details so hope you get more bookings! You deserve it!
