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!

Blew the roof off!

If you're planning an event or a wedding and want the dancefloor to be hopping, look no further than New Soul Duo! We got married last year and they managed our audio throughout the ceremony and reception, played a live performance for our first dance, and then rocked the house for hours on the dance floor into the wee hours of the morning . They were a pleasure to work with prior to the wedding, and made every effort to accommodate the personal touches throughout the day that made it even more special. They were contactable, approachable, flexible, and professional. Not only that, but they are incredibly talented. We could not have imagined our wedding day without Tony & Vance.

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.

The compliment we get most about our wedding is about the band. We first heard New Soul Duo by chance at a pub they were playing at. We had so much fun listening and dancing to them and loved their energy. We knew we wanted them for our wedding. That same night we made the arrangements in person and the process was a breeze. When they played our wedding our guests were blown away by their talent and great set lists. People had fun and for us that was all that mattered, New Soul Duo made that happen. They are really nice guys, easy to deal with And made life easier for us. I would recommend them to anyone for any event. You will NOT be disappointed.

Had a blast with you guys on the weekend at our wedding!! Couldn't have stumbled across a better band following our engagement, and making the decision to have you guys as our entertainment for our big day! You guys absolutely rocked our night! You set an amazing tone to the evening full of fun, excitement and upbeat music. We don't think there was a single person (130), that didn't make it to the dance floor at least once. Your selection of music was great, along with your interactions with us and the guests. Everybody loved you guys, and couldn't stop talking about how great the entertainment was. So great, that all our guests were chanting for an encore after your set was finished. Thank you for travelling to Red Deer for us! Hopefully it won't be the last time you visit here for a show! - Carissa and Tyler

We knew we had to hire New Soul Duo for our wedding after seeing them play in Banff one night. From the moment I had contacted them with my inquiry I was very impressed with the time that they took to explain everything and accommodate our special day to exactly what we were looking for. They promptly responded to my many emails and made sure I was always in the loop. They had absolutely no problem learning new songs to play for our processional, recessional and book signing and they did an absolutely amazing job! Our guests and family could not stop talking about how nice it was to have live acoustics for our ceremony as well as a band for our cocktail hour & reception that knew all of the best songs and were able to keep the crowd going the whole night! Plus it gave our wedding a special touch instead of just having a typical DJ for a wedding. If you are looking for an awesome band that are not only extremely talented but can keep the mood romantic at the ceremony & the party going all night do not look any further! You will NOT be disappointed!!!!!! Huge props to these guys =)

New Soul Duo and DJ Najee are the BEST!

We had New Soul Duo AND DJ Najee at our wedding and they were fabulous! On time, great value, walked us through the process. Live music walking down the isle and during the ceremony was the best choice and we would recommend for all your wedding music needs!!! You will not be disappointed!
