We had an amazing experience with the Soul Sensations! Doug, Cara and their team were a dream to work with. Their set list was incredible, and they were incredibly accommodating in terms of tailoring things specifically for our day! They played a fantastic jazz set for our cocktail hour and kept everyone dancing through the reception. They had a terrific vibe. We couldn’t have been happier with the flow of the evening!

The Soul Sensations were on time, professional, full of energy and made our wedding event flow seamlessly from ceremony to cocktail hour and reception. Right from the start, they communicated with us to understand our needs and wants and then played the perfect songs so the dance floor was never empty. Every generation got up and danced! Our guests are still talking about how great this band was. We would absolutely recommend The Soul Sensations to anyone!

The band killed it. They were high energy, played a great mix of music, and had EVERYONE dancing. The Soul Sensations were everything we hoped for, and we’re so glad that we found them!

Working with Cara, the lead singer and our emcee, was so easy leading up to the wedding. She was organized, responsive, and helpful. We worked with her to hire the band to provide music for all parts our wedding (at completely reasonable rates—other bands quoted us 3x more than them!). The solo guitarist did a lovely job for as our ceremony musician, a pianist and guitarist played contemporary cocktail hour music, and the full band was on deck to get the party started.

We liked that the band played music geared for all generations: mostly oldies and Motown, with just enough top 40s, so that everyone could find something they liked. And, there wasn’t a single person that didn’t hit the dance floor, from my uncle doing the robot to my college roommates starting the limbo! People danced for 3+ hours straight!

Cara, in addition to having an impressive voice as the lead singer, was an absolute star as our emcee. She was upbeat, had amazing energy, and made the flow of the event (first dance, mother-son dance, toasts, etc.) work seamlessly. She was truly fantastic!

Thanks, Soul Sensations, for turning our wedding into a GREAT time!

The Soul Sensations were PHENOMENAL! They completely made our wedding - our guests are still talking about the band!! We had a very rainy night under a tent and they truly allowed us to dance in the rain - I have never seen a dance floor fill up as quickly as it did at our wedding and the set list we created together was a major crowd pleaser! We are now day dreaming about the next time we may have an event big enough to invite the Soul Sensations back to!
