Step 'n' Soul were amazing and everyone has commented on how great they were! They interacted with audience and had everyone up dancing. The excellent communication beforehand with Katanya made the planning process really easy. Thank you for being a part of our special day! I would definitely recommend Step 'n' Soul for any party!

Hi Katanya and Daniel, Thank you for playing at our wedding. You guys were amazing and the set up was perfect for the evening. You really made the night and got everyone on the dance floor, which is exactly what we wanted. Many of our guests complimented on how great you were, so I would like to pass that onto you both. Thank you for everything and making our evening. We just wish we could relive the evening, so we could hear it all again. Regards Donna O’Flynn
