    Exceptional Band and DJ!

    New Soul Duo and DJ Yahya took care of the music during our wedding reception this past August in Fernie, BC. They were incredible! Prior to our day, all emails were answered SUPER promptly, and the group was thorough in taking the time to understand what we wanted for our music. They played my father-daughter dance live...something that will always be a treasured memory. During our wedding reception, their music choices were flawless, their energy was unflagging, the dance floor was full pretty much all night, and a good third of our guests were still up partying when the last song played at 1 am! Between sets, they were all really kind and friendly, and continued to add to the night, with DJ Yahya often joining us to dance. We had so much fun!!! Many of our guests and vendors commented to us about how outstanding both the duo and DJ were. We highly recommend New Soul Duo to anybody else seeking unforgettable entertainment for their event. Thank you Aisha, Vance, and Tony for helping make our wedding day so special ☺️

    Hello Andrea!
    We are so happy that you and your guests enjoyed us! Thank you for treating us like honoured guests. We were lucky to be part of your big day. All the best to you both, we wish you a successful and happy life together :)
    - love, NSD & DJ Yaya

    A DJ & a Band walk into a room...

    New Soul Duo & DJ Yaya blew us all away with their talent!! I personally (the bide) could not stop dancing, it's 10 days past my wedding and my voice is still recovering from singing along! Our guests danced non stop until 1 AM. They are absolutely AMAZING!! Aisha, Vance, and Anthony listened to our requests and brought our vision to life - they killed it! I never wanted the night to end. Hiring these guys is the best of both worlds, live music and a super fun DJ who will dance with your guests! Communication with Aisha was perfect, their pricing is reasonable (worth every penny), and they are truly incredible. Don't hesitate, book New Soul Duo & DJ Yaya for all of your events! Thank you guys for making our wedding so fun!

    New Soul Duo's reply:

    Hi Crissy, thank you for the kind review! We won’t forget your wedding, it was incredibly beautiful and so much fun! Thank you for having us! We wish you all the success in the future! Love, DJ Yaya & NSD :)

    The BEST Wedding Entertainers

    NSD was phenomenal! We had lots of fun with them, and our reception was so memorable because of their great talent and contagious energy that kept our guests (and myself) dancing all night long. Despite the space provided to them being quite small, they managed to pull it off and performed like they had all the space in the world. My guests were so impressed with them! They're very accommodating with my specific playlist request and I'm so happy we hired NSD for our wedding. Wouldn't have had it any other way! Thanks a lot, DJ Yaya, Vance and Tony!

    New Soul Duo's reply:

    Hi Corinne and Mark! Thank you so much for your kind review. We had a fantastic time at your wedding, and it was absolutely beautiful! We won’t forget the beautifully choreographed dance to “Dahil Sayo” either! We hope you two are doing well and maybe we will see you again someday, at one of our gigs perhaps? All the best! - New Soul Duo & DJ Yaya

    Canmore Wedding

    One of the best investments made for our Canmore wedding. Their service made the reception that much better and fun. Professional and flexible. We had smaller venue and the band made it work nicely. I would definitely recommend them to others.

    Hi Stephanie,
    Thank you for your kind review. You guys were super easy to work with as well. We hope you guys have a bright future together. 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! :)

    Nothing beats live music!

    These guys bring the party! I hired them to play my wedding after I saw them tear the dancefloor up at The Drake in Canmore and the show does travel! They have a massive sound for a 2 piece band and are expertly able to read and work a crowd.

    I think we have come full circle on the DJ vs Band debate, Live music for life!

    New Soul Duo's reply:

    Hi Connor,
    Thank you for the review we really appreciate it. Thanks again for choosing us to be a part of your celebration and we hope to see you guys again. You are right and we hear it often people are very happy those chose us over a DJ.

    Anthony and Vance were the perfect choice for our wedding reception! Not only are they delightful to work with, they are also extremely talented. They offer an amazing variety of music and were exceptional at getting the crowd involved, and making sure we had the most fun party possible. I estimate at least a third of my guests asked about them and commented on what an amazing job they did! We also had them sing two songs just for us and they were perfect! Hire these guys if you're looking to host a great event that everyone will remember!!

    New Soul Duo's reply:

    Candace,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to review us here we appreciate it very much. It was nice to see you on the dance floor for our sets. We were your number one fans. Thank you for supporting live music, we wish you all the best and hope to see you down the road.
