We could not be happier with our choice to use Soultones for our wedding! They were amazing, lively, interactive and fun. They were definitely the highlight of the night, our friends are still raving about how great they were. At the last minute we decided to add the horns and they were incredible! (Everyone should get the horns!) All the singers have amazing voices and energy, at times they were down on the dance floor with us. It was perfect! Thank you so much Soultones!Sent on 01/05/2018

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

The life of the party!
We knew that a great band would be the focal point of our wedding and we were ok spending a little more in order to get the best! We loved SoulTones of DownbeatLA. Not only did they sound amazing, their energy penetrated the entire night! They kept people on the dance floor and they were not afraid to get down and join the party. I had two issues with the band though, although not serious. The first, we hired the same band to bring a guitarist and dj to our ceremony and although we provided the EXACT music we wanted, he did not play the version of the songs we wanted and then was missing the bridal processional song all together. Thankfully my coordinator had it on her phone. The second, we had a few cultural elements to our reception and they did a great job of singing them, however they didn't give the appropriate introductions so that our guests knew what was going on. All in all, these two things did not ruin our wedding, but good information for anyone looking to book them, is that you may have to very explicitly communicate what you are expecting from the band/dj. Every single guest gave rave reviews of our band, and in the end that was very important to us.Sent on 03/22/2019
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.
