WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Emile & Sarah-Jayne
Wedding, The Italian Villa, Dorset (OJ's Soul Band)
You were the heart and soul of our wedding! We cannot thank you enough for how special you made our day. Guest have been raving about you ever since! You were all so talented at what you do and we really appreciate you sharing your gifts with us on our special day.
Zack Gold
Wedding, The Loft Studios, London
OJ's Soul Band were amazing! We had so many guests complimenting the playlist, the quality of the musicians and singers and lots of people with very sore feet and legs the next day from all the dancing! James and his bandmate (the lovely sax player whose name I have forgotten, I'm so sorry) were really friendly and super helpful and made sure we didn't miss the first dance! They kept us informed throughout the event without being intrusive and were very responsive in the run up to the event. We would definitely recommend them! Thank you!

Guy & Claudia Pittard
Wedding, Botleys Mansion, Surrey
I just wanted to say a big thank you to yourself and the band. They were amazing and everyone commented on how talented they all are! I don’t think the dance floor was empty once. My only upset is that I kept getting pulled away and couldn’t enjoy them more! Thank you again and we will be recommending them.
