    Everyone should book Shaded Soul Band for their wedding!

    I wasn’t looking to book a band for my wedding, but it was the best decision I could have made! We saw the Shaded Soul Band at a bridal show, then went to see them live, and within 10 seconds of hearing them play we knew we had to book them. They sounded amazing! Renee, the band leader, was so easy to work with and so professional. Renee went above and beyond. She would call every so often to check in and see how we were doing with wedding planning. And when we had to postpone our wedding because of Covid, we got a ‘not a problem’ and the change was made. It was seamless.

    The day of the wedding the band started playing and everyone was on the dance floor. They were the talk of the wedding. People even continued to talk about how good they were the day after. It was non stop dancing as soon as they started playing. The music is one of the big things guests like to judge and the Shaded Soul Band had our guests wishing they booked this band for their weddings. They were a huge hit amongst our older and younger guests. I honestly can’t recommend them enough. If you want to have the best music for your wedding, book the Shaded Soul Band!

    Incredible!!!!

    It was truly an honor to have the opportunity to hire Shaded Soul Band for our ceremony, cocktail and reception music. Renee was incredible to work with. Her communication was efficient and super helpful leading up to the big day. The band learned a few songs for us, too. Our guests are still talking about their band a few weeks later. They have set the bar for wedding entertainment, or even just live music in general! We totally recommend to anyone and feel you must include their band in your budget. You won't regret it. Everyone was on the dancefloor and they were so excited, that they even danced between salad and dinner courses! It was the best night!
