Best band ever
I know I am bias, but truly the best wedding band EVER! Multiple people at my wedding have asked for their information because they made the wedding celebration what it was. They kept the energy high the entire night, engaged with the crowd on the dance floor, and each person in the band had incredible talent. They learned 4 new songs for us and performed them flawlessly, as they did for the VERY long list of songs they already knew. They also played one extra song at the end of the night at the request of the bride without hesitation. I can't recommend this band enough, and my words truly don't do them justice. They will make your wedding perfect!Sent on 11/16/2019

So much fun!
Downbeat LA was so easy to work with, and the band was FANTASTIC! We have this event every year and I've never seen so many people on the dance floor. We'll definitely be working with them again!Sent on 10/21/2019

Our guests are still raving about SoulTones!
We had the most amazing time at our wedding thanks to SoulTones and Downbeat LA! Diego and Joel were incredibly helpful throughout the planning process and patient with us as we tried to figure out how to make sure we could have the band set-up work with our wedding at The Ranch. We had SUCH A BLAST and all our guests were dancing their faces off the entire night! We have had people raving about them everytime we talk about the wedding, and we could not recommend them more. They were a hit and truly the highlight of the night! They are wonderful performers and had so many options that everyone from my grandparents to bridal party loved the songlist. Thanks so much Downbeat and SoulTones!Sent on 06/03/2019
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend them for your wedding!
Downtown Beat LA is the first group we recommend for our clients who are interested in a live band for their wedding or event. Their onstage presence, sound, vocals, and energy gets everyone on the dance floor moving and singing along! They also understand the logistics and dynamics of events and are not just there to perform but to create entire experience. They were a pleasure to work with and hands down our favorite band in the industry!
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Downbeat LA. Our client hired their band, The SoulTones, and I couldn't have been happier with their professionalism as well as their ability to get EVERYONE on the dance floor. All of the band members and sound crew were so great to work with and very respectful. The band was amazing and I loved their energy. I also really liked how the sound engineer was constantly checking to ensure the sound was perfect. Overall, I really enjoyed working with such a talented bunch of people and I enjoyed working with Diego on the planning side. If anyone is looking for a live band, I definitely recommend them! The quality of their services is outstanding.
