WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Stoke Place Hotel
Soul & Motown Dinner
5/5 Booking process from start to finish was amazing. Great band and looking forward to seeing them again on 29th August. Amy and Erin were very helpful
J.Sleighthome
Wedding, Northbrook Park, Surrey
We both absolutely loved OJ’s Soul Band and they helped make the evening of our wedding incredible. The music was absolutely superb and the band members really put on a great show. We could not have wished for a better band and I would recommend them to anyone! It was a difficult build up to the wedding with COVID-19 affecting our plans but the regular communication with the band assured us that they were keen to play and be a part of our special day. This reassurance and brilliant customer service throughout the whole process was hugely appreciated at uncertain times. Also I’d just like to make a special mention to the saxophonist on the night who dealt with me re timings; she was lovely and her saxophone playing was incredible - my favourite instrument.
