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.

Best dancefloor ever

We could not recommend New Soul Duo (Tony & Vance) more highly for any wedding. They were professional, courteous, responsive, dedicated, and, most of all, super talented. They did a fantastic job setting up and managing the music/sound throughout the day (despite our attention to the smallest details). They blew the roof of the venue with banger after banger, and the dancefloor did not stop bumping until the very end.

If you're getting married, hosting an event, or notice that they're playing live in your area, don't miss them!

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 ☺️

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!

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!

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.

A Wedding People Will Keep Talking About

Thanks to New Duo Soul our guests will never forget our wedding. Song after song after song they had everyone on the dance floor. They played all the crowd pleasers, entertained everyone, and were honestly the highlight of the wedding.
The have an amazing presence, are incredible to work with, and exceeded all expectations!

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!
