Dear Hester and all members of Sol Fusion,
I'm slowly starting to come off my wedding high, and I wanted to finally thank you for the wonderful job you did at my wedding. You all were fantastic. People were on the dance floor the entire night and everyone came up to me and said how much they enjoyed your performance. I cannot thank you enough for the incredible job you did with salt n pepa! EVERYONE should have the experience of singing with back up singers! You made me sound so much better! I really wanted to let you know how wonderful you did and how you really made the wedding spectacular. So thank you a million times over. If I ever need to perform "whatta man" again, I may be calling you up!
THANK YOU! -Jenny A.- Bride Lowndes Grove Charleston, SC-10/12/13
Sincere thanks go to you and Sol Fusion!!!!!! We are so happy that you played at Melissa and Thomas's wedding reception. As you could tell from the dance floor, everyone loved your band! We are still getting compliments from our guests. I recommended Sol Fusion to a mother today who is just beginning to plan her daughter's wedding for October 2014.
Caroline B. -Mother of the Bride- Washington Duke Inn-9/28/13
Hester & Chris,
Thank YOU!!! You guys rocked it and totally made up for the fact that it poured like crazy. Everyone was raving about Sol Fusion and had a fantastic time.
From my end you guys were incredibly easy to work with, flexible and helpful. Totally appreciate it!
Hope to work with you again soon!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! We are still getting phone calls and texts about how GREAT Sol Fusion was! You were all incredible! The dance floor was full all night and I was just riding on a cloud! Thank you for EVERYTHING! It was everything we dreamed of and more!!
YOU ARE INCREDIBLE!!
Colleen and Jim N. - 9/7/13- Marriott-City Center Charlotte, NC
You. Guys. Were. Amazing. I said this to Chris but please tell the whole band: we received many compliments throughout the wedding but the one we received from everyone was, "this band is amazing".
I was so busy dancing (badly) and having fun that I can't remember all the songs you performed. Would you send over the set list from the night (whenever you have a moment)?
Thanks again for helping to make the evening incredible & full of fun & energy. You definitely have a number of new Sol Fusion fans!

Thank you SO much for recommending them! They really made the whole night special . I hope they enjoyed playing for us, it looked like they had a good time too! Hope you are having a great summer,
Barb K. - Mother of the Bride - Old North State Club 6/29/13
Sol Fusion was absolutely fabulous! They put on an "unforgettable" show all night long! Everyone at the reception loved Hester and all of the wonderful members of the group. They are all "True Professionals" and "First Class". They were so good that everyone wanted more!!!!!!!
I've heard a lot of great bands through the years, but I can say "without question", Sol Fusion is the MOST entertaining, great sounding, fun loving, high energy and accommodating group I've ever seen/heard!! Please give them my sincerest thanks for making Katherine and Jay's wedding reception so memorable and special!
Ted, thanks so very much for recommending Sol Fusion. You and all of your team at EastCoast Entertainment did a great job of taking care of us!
Sincerely and with thanks,
Harry F. (November 9th, 2013)
Thank you Sol Fusion,
Matt and I are on our honeymoon and reliving all of the fun moments dancing around--we had a blast!!! Hope we can host you guys again in the future - Sol Fusion brought the house down. Thank you for the happy memories!
Emily and Matt N. - Bride & Groom- 7/21/13 - Highlands, NC.
Hester & Chris,
Thank you! Sol Fusion made it seem like that was the first wedding they have ever done. Seriously!
I am very hopeful you will be coming back to Greenville, as everyone has been asking where you guys are from. Multiple complements how good you guys are and how much fun it was. The word awesome has been used frequently in describing the Sol Fusion performance.
I Will definitely keep looking at your site to see when you guys are playing and will put New Years on the calendar.
Can't thank you and Harvey enough for helping to make a very special memory for my family.
Look forward to seeing you soon.
Tim B.-Father of the Bride-Poinsett Club Greenville, SC 10/18/13
Hi Hester & Chris,
We are now back to reality checking e-mail again....thanks to Sol Fusion for doing a fantastic job. We and all of our guests loved every minute of your music and fun.
May B. - Bride - Sea Island, GA - 8/3/13
Hey Hester & Chris!
Thank YOU and Sol Fusion so, so much for everything. You were certainly the highlight of the reception and almost every guest asked us where we found y'all and said you were the best wedding band they had ever heard (of course we agreed wholeheartedly!).
We will never forget y'all and how special you made our weekend.
Anneli and Beau B.- 7/6/13 - Bride & Groom - The Barn @ Wake Forest University
Just wanted to let you know how awesome the band Sol Fusion was for our daughter, Anne's wedding. They really got the party started and kept it going. They were very good and were very easy to communicate with before the wedding. Thanks for your help with this.
We could not have been more pleased.
Hope to see you soon.
Karen D. (August 10th, 2013)

We loved Soul Fusion! Thank you for playing for our students/faculty/staff, we would love the opportunity for you to come and play for us in the future.

Chris - Thank you man, Sol Fusion was awesome! All I heard on Friday was "that band was amazing." I'll definitely call y'all the next time I need a good band.
Republican National Committee- 1/24/13
Chris, Sol Fusion was awesome! Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to work with such a talented group. The event would not have been nearly as enjoyable without the Sol Fusion sound.
Hope to work with you again in the future.
Rod G. - Young Professionals Awards Gala 2013 - 2/7/13
Sorry I am just responding - we got back from our honeymoon last night!
Words cannot describe how grateful Jordan and I are that Sol Fusion was a part of our wedding! You guys are amazing!!! Our guests could not stop commenting on how incredible the band was, and we couldn't agree more. You guys just take it above and beyond! I have two friends who recently got engaged who followed up with me after the wedding to find out your name - they both want to have y'all play at their weddings too! Hopefully y'all will be available :)
Too funny about the praying mantis! I guess he liked the music as much as we did!
Thanks again so much Hester, Jordan and I are so happy that we got to dance the night away with y'all!
Meghan K.-Bride 9/20/13- Lowndes Grove- Charleston, SC.
Hester and Sol Fusion-
Yes the night truly was magical in large part to Sol Fusion.
I don't think I have ever seen a happier bride and groom. Brett wanted everyone to dance, and dance all night-
You made it happen!!!
I have to admit I was a little worried about taking care of the "traditions" all up front but it proved to be such a great idea as the evening played out just the way Brett and Russell wanted it to.
I don't think I have ever been to a wedding/ or party where the dance floor was filled all night long and to have a request for an encore!!!- I am so glad we requested to have the larger dance floor.
Sol Fusion played such a terrific mix of music. I think you accommodated everyone's possible in music.
Ed and I certainly hope that when we come to Charlotte in the future we will have the opportunity to listen to you all again.
Thank you again for the truly wonderful and yes magical evening.
Linda S.- Mother of the Bride- 8/31/13-Charlotte, NC.
We just wanted to THANK YOU for such an absolutely amazing day- from the incredible ceremony, to cocktail hour, to reception, and hanging out afterwards....you all were ABSOLUTELY amazing. I couldn't leave the dance floor, I LOVED watching and listening to you all, and couldn't hardly wait to hear what song you would do next. Oh, I just wish it was this weekend so I could re-live it all over again. We are just so grateful that you poured your heart and soul into the day, and it meant the absolute world to us. Sol Fusion will always have a very special place in our hearts, and we can't wait to see you all again sometime soon...not sure where, but we WILL make it happen. PLEASE let us know if you ever need a reference, we would 100% love to speak to anyone about how much we loved you all - as musicians, people, and professionals.
Thank you again and see you soon!
All the best,
Ashley (and Mike) -Pop Castle, Va. 9/1/13
Larry, Chris & Hester, I would like to thank you for a great performance by the Sol Fusion band. They were terrific! But you probably know that. But what you don't know is that I received a telephone call today from Gary Townsend, our mens' locker room attendant, who said that he "bonded" for 3-4 hours Saturday with the band members while they got ready to sing. When Gary came in Monday morning he expected to find what he has always found...the mens' locker room in a real mess. Instead, it was spotless. Bathroom was clean and even the floors had been vacuumed. He was so complimentary of the band member for cleaning the place. They even left Gary a kind note that he has posted near his work station that said how much they appreciated Gary's kindness but most importantly that they had told Gary from the first conversation that they were very "clean" and they meant it. I think that this gesture on the part of the band members speaks volumes about how classy a group it is that makes up Sol Fusion. After most of the guests had left Saturday night I was thanked over and over again by different members of the bank for inviting them to play. I couldn't believe that they were thanking me but they said that they were taken care of and appreciated so well by the Grandfather staff and guests. Larry, Chris, and Hester, Sol Fusion is a class act indeed. Thank you,
Charles C. Father of the Bride - 6/22/13 Grandfather Golf & Country Club.
