High School Reunion

The band was great. I couldn't believe how fast they got my "old" crowd up and dancing. I would highly recommend them at any time. Next time, I'll give you a shout.

Before we go to bed tonight we have to give a huge thank you for being THE party last night! Everyone had an amazing time thanks to your unbelievable energy and talent! Zach and I danced the whole night and still made our rounds through the guests because everyone was on the dance floor. You may have a new fan club of Richmonders who try to crash every local event you play from here on out! Thank you for everything... It really was the best night ever!

Soul Play was a hit!  We had the best time at our wedding and have already received inquiries on the band name.  I couldn't be happier with our choice and hope we get to see them again in the near future.  They made our reception a true party and everyone danced the whole night!  Thank you for the recommendation and hope to see them again!!

Thanks for the follow-up! Soul Play was wonderful- they truly made the night incredible. We had several people say that our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to, largely because the live band created an incredibly fun atmosphere.  Soul Play read our audience and played songs that EVERYONE loved.  Both of our grandmothers were even out on the dance floor!  I could not recommend a better band, especially if you want a fun and active wedding... Thanks for asking!

The band was amazing. I thought they did an incredible job of engaging the audience and playing the song list that Lilly and Louis wanted. Everyone recognized that it was a successful evening in that people were on the dance floor nonstop all night... Thanks for everything.

Private Party

I just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed Soul Play at our party Saturday night. They were wonderful to work with and very engaged working up to the event. They did a great job of feeling out the crowd and playing more low-key music at the beginning as everyone was arriving. Once the party got going, they didn't hold back and we all danced the night away. My friends and I LOVE to get on stage and they invited us up at different intervals which made it a blast. Also really liked how they came out into the crowd to interact with the guests. I can't wait to party with them again soon!

Thank you so much for helping us find them!

We had the most amazing time at our wedding on Saturday and Soul Play was absolutely incredible. I can't say enough about them. They had the entire reception on the dance floor all night. We had the best time and everyone who came keeps raving about them!!

We will certainly recommend them to our friends. We are happy to write a review on yelp or any other platform (if you guys do that). 

Think you so much for everything. We had an incredible weekend.

I just wanted to write you again and thank you so much for helping me out with the band for our party on April 19th! It was so much fun and the band was AMAZING. I had so many people asking for their cards and contact information. I really appreciate you arranging everything for us and putting us together with Soul Play! They were such a hit.

Thank you again!

Debutante Ball

Our Cotillion Club was extremely pleased with Soul Play at our Spring Dance and Debutante Ball. The music selection was great. Al and his fellow band members were easy to approach, to work with and our members really enjoyed their style. The lead vocalist had Michael Jackson down perfect and Amber and Black Diamond were excellent performers. Some of our crowd were amazed with the lead guitarist's solo piece. It was impressive! I should have made a better effort to communicate a suggested songs from their website for them earlier so that they would have been able to have their play list set, but I didn't call them until the week before to tell them how our evening would be scheduled and they adapted very well and played the songs we so enjoyed dancing to for our fun,fun evening.

Thanks for your email! We were really pleased with Soul Play. They are wonderful musicians and really got our crowd going... My friend booked Soul Play for her reception in May at Atlantic Beach and I have already told her how great they are and how much she will love having them.

They were great....in fact I had more positive comments about them than any band I've booked in a while. I especially appreciated that they kept the volume down better than any band I've used before. So thanks for recommending them.

I just wanted to write a quick feedback for SoulPlay band that played at our wedding @ Bluewater Grill on 11/2/13. The band was simply incredible. They were very engaging with the audience and kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. I can't tell you how many compliments were given to the band for our wedding; I wish they could all be passed along. They certainly made our night that much more special and I'm sure they picked up fans for future gigs in the future. All the best to the band.

Thanks again for a great night.

Thanks to you and everyone involved with Soul Play. They were absolutely spectacular and exceeded our expectations! They had everyone up and dancing all night, just as we had hoped and their interaction with the guests was unbelievable. We have only heard positive feedback from everyone and we only have positive things to say. THANK YOU for making it such a special, wonderful, awesome time. If we are ever fortunate to throw another huge party we will DEFINITELY have Soul Play there.

Al and crew got the crowd engaged, took requests to appease guests, and learned a new song to make our first dance amazing! I can not say enough positive things about this group. I would highly recommend for any occasion!

Father of the Bride

All I know is Soul Play was the best wedding band I've heard or seen live. They played everything I wanted to hear and everyone seemed to really be enjoying themselves. Unfortunately, I got hit with a stomach bug literally during the ceremony, spent most of the time hugging a toilet all night and wasn't able to eat or drink anything till the next day. However, that has nothing to do with Soul Play. Thanks so much for recommending them to us as it wouldn't have been the same without them. You and the rest of team/bands at EastCoast Entertainment are true professionals.

To follow up on our phone conversation the Soul Play band is just the best. As you know, we used them for my daughter's wedding reception party on Ocracoke Island this past weekend. The band arrived on time, set up quickly, and were ready to go well ahead of schedule. They were friendly, respectful and in a word, professional. The music chosen fit the occasion perfectly, the musicians were right on with the sound and the singers were just wonderful. I especially, along with the rest of the party, enjoyed the band's interaction with the wedding attendees. Everyone loved it. Again, in a word, the quality of entertainment was superb. I would and will recommend Soul Play highly.

Student Activity Board Event

Saturday night was great! Our students really enjoyed Soul Play. The music was great and they were very engaging with our students. We had one little issue with the Heartwood's sound system and the band was great in getting their equipment from their van and had the music up in just a few minutes.

I spoke with one of the women in the band and thanked her for a great job and told her I was going to email you today to book them for next year. Thanks again.

Fraternity Event

Soul Play was absolutely amazing. They played great music and were the perfect fit for our fraternity's event. Their song choices were really good and they truly made the event come together. Once the dance floor filled up they kept everyone out because we were having such a good time. Thank you for suggesting them and we will definitely be trying to use them again next year if it works out.

Restoration Ball

It went really well. The weather was a hassle and inconvenient, but there was still a great turnout and everyone had a great time. The band was great, I really enjoyed their performance and they were very professional. They were very accommodating and worked with the limited space and money we had at our disposal. All in all it was a very efficient performance, the crowd loved them, and they were a great partner for this event. Thanks for recommending them for us.
