Soul75 's Reviews

I originally were looking at another band as my present for my dad's 80th but as soon as I saw Soul75's YouTube videos I knew they would make the event, and boy was I right!! It was a big celebration at 150 people and we are still getting comments about it, mainly about the band. Soul75 have a fantastic set list to choose from and me and my parents chose almost every song they suggested. We wanted quite a bit of reggae as my dad is Jamaican so they really can do it all. Their set was tight, and you could tell they all worked hard to ensure it stayed that way. From the drummer, to bass, to guitar and the incredible vocalist, everything was spot on. Our guests felt like they were at a gig 😂 people were dancing and singing along. They even accommodated me singing a song for my dad. Simply put, if you are hesitating between bands, you will not be disappointed. Booking through Encore was super simple and Richard stayed in good contact up to the night of our event. Thank you so much guys, you really are a special band and my dad LOVED it.

What can we say! You were incredible! And we can't thank you enough for the performance you threw at the wedding. The band members were so lovely with socialising with the guests and everyone was saying how lovely you all were. Thank you again!
