Information about New Soul Duo

Combining classic rock, a healthy dose of the 90’s, and a tasteful selection of new dance hits, this massive sounding party band provides a show unlike any other. Their musical twists, witty audience interactions, and accompanying DJ leaves nobody left out, and keeps the dance floor packed. Your wedding will remembered and talked about forever!

Experience

Vance Alexander and Anthony Blaine have played more than 300 shows together since 2013, taking the wedding and corporate world by storm. And with the new addition of their charismatic host DJ Yaya, business has only increased during the economic recession. They performed in the Kingdom of Bahrain in 2016 to represent Canada in the World Petroleum Congress Convention, and they were nominated in 2017 at the Calgary Event Awards for Best Entertainment.

Some recent clients include the City of Calgary, Tourism Calgary, The Calgary Zoo, Calgary White Hat Awards, Pace-kids, Walk-A-Mile, A Taste of Calgary, The Banff Centre, The Fairmont Banff Springs, Chateau Lake Louise, Audi Calgary, The Lions Club, and Heritage Park.

    Amazing band with great energy, really engages the crowd!

    What a fantastic band! Everyone raved about how great they were at our party - we held an outdoor party for 60 - and seriously, everyone mentioned how great the band was! They engage the crowd, they make it fun, they sound fantastic, they're personable - just generally they made the night extra special! Thanks New Soul Duo - anytime we have an event that needs live music, you will be our first call!

    The highlight of our Canmore Wedding

    Vance, Tony and Aisha were a surprise treat to or guests. We had experienced a night out in Calgary and everyone loved them then as much as they did on our wedding day. Vance was extremely flexible and accommodating in planning the event. They were the easiest of all of our vendors to communicate with. We would reccomend them 11/10.

    A group that will add fun to your party

    We booked New Soul Duo through this website because of the consistently good reviews that they have garnered. However, we want to be sure and we saw the group perform twice before our wedding. We were not disappointed. All members of the group were great to deal with before, during and after the wedding. Vance particularly was instrumental in helping us organize the logistics and he was very good at keeping in contact with us via email. All our guests commented how much they enjoyed the band and we would not hesitate to hire them in the future for a social event. Regardless if your wedding/event is small like ours was or bigger, then you need New Soul Duo at your wedding .

    Thanks Adriana for taking the time to give us your very kind review. You guys were also very good to work for. We really enjoyed getting to know you guys. I will always remember Mike giving it all he had on your first dance:). I hope in the future you will come say hi and dance the night away Kung fu fighting style with us at one of our public shows. Wishing you both all the Best.

    New soul duo rocks!

    Wow! What an amazing job Vance & Tony did! Everyone sitting at their table had a blast chatting with them, they absolutely ROCKED every song, and kept all of our guests dancing the night away. Our day would not have been as much fun as it was without them. Thank you guys - you rock! :)
