WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

Mike Reddihough
Wedding, Roslin Beach Hotel, Essex
Absolutely brilliant - the band were phenomenal. We were all squeezed into this tiny room and the band took up essentially half the room - but they adapted brilliantly and put on a spectacular show. Everyone was dancing all night long, they were friendly, and accommodating to my wife's request to grab a mic and join in! The band were tight, sounded fantastic and prompt with their timekeeping. Many people asked for details which I happily passed along - expect further business. Would not hesitate to recommend. DJ set was also great and designed as requested - much appreciated. We hope to have an opportunity to hire again. Thanks for making our evening so incredible. Many thanks, Michael & Hannah

Wedding, La Talbooth, Colchester
Just a quick message to say how amazing OJ's Soul Band were at our wedding on Saturday 1st September. I kept it a secret from all our guests for well over a year and the reaction to them was brilliant! Everyone said how great they played, having them sing our first dance made it all the more special. I can't thank you enough for arranging everything for us, please also send my regards to Erin, she made everything run smoothly and emails back and forth were great. Once again a massive thank you to the band and I will definitely be recommending them to all my friends and family.

Dear Phoebe, I think we can safely say the band were a ROARING success!! They had the whole event, and event team, up and dancing!! James and Ollie were really on it with turning up and being organised and all the band were super polite and professional all day. We would highly recommend them to anyone who asked and I wouldn’t be surprised if they got a few bookings from friday night. They went down a storm. Many thanks, they made me look good for booking them!!
