We’re absolutely chuffed that we booked Soul in the City for our wedding. The song choices were perfect and they did a beautiful rendition of a Bob Marley song for our first dance. All of our guests commented on how talented they are and how they brought a fantastic end to the evening!Claire, Wedding, Horsham

Would just like to say a massive thank you to Soul in the City for playing at our wedding last night! You made the night spectacular! Everybody loved the music and danced all night! Would highly recommend you to anyone! Thanks again.Christina & Alan, Wedding, Brighton

I had Soul in the City playing at my birthday party. They brought so much happy mood with them, that even the older guests started moving their hips. The band members are an absolute likeable European mixture with a vitalising effect on everyone around. Their interplay felt like a well composed dish and I look forward having more of it! Thanks a lot for your inspiration!Reni, Birthday Party, London
