Ten Souljers delivered our DREAM wedding celebration experience!!!!
If you're thinking about bringing Ten Souljers in as your party band––do it! Marty and his talented group of musicians went above and beyond to curate the perfect set list for our wedding celebration; Marty was easy, efficient, and fun to work with––a strong communicator from the first time we connected. We decided on the 7-piece band, and each musician demonstrated such talent, energy, and professionalism; we couldn't have been happier with the performance.Sent on 21/05/2019
If Ten Souljers was on stage, our dance floor was packed, and our guests are still raving about the band. Ten Souljers was truly a cornerstone of our incredible celebration, and I'm excited for the future weddings / parties that make the right decision to bring in Marty and his team!
Thank you, Ten Souljers!

Wedding Band !
Every guest raved about the band TEN SOULJERS on our wedding day! They had lots of energy and the female singers were completely mind-blowing. The horns and saxophones were so great to listen to. One of our favourite parts was having the slow dance to Lady Gaga's "Shallow," which was completely unreal. The female singer sang and made your skin shiver! All of the other songs were super hip, fun and our guests enjoyed the variety in music.Sent on 08/09/2019
Having TEN SOULJERS as the key element of the wedding was definitely the best decision! Thanks so much for all your energy.
TEN SOULJERS is an amazing and very talented band! From the beginning, Marty is wonderful to chat to and he is always willing to listen to suggestions.
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for your wedding band! Looking forward to dancing to their music and seeing them int he Vancouver area !
Ten Souljers Band's reply:Hi Natasha! Thank you for putting your faith in us! And thank you for the lovely review! It was a big production with staging, moving lights and one of our bigger ensembles! The venue was amazing - very befitting of the production! Wishing you much happiness now and always!

Seriously the best band in the world
WOW! If we could give them 10 stars, we would! Marty and the Ten Souljers truly was the best part of our entire wedding reception. Almost all of our guests have told us the same. From the minute Marty and I started talking about the event, Marty's response time and communication was extremely impressive. Marty would respond within an hour, at all times throughout the day. He picked up every single one of my calls (there were many!). Not only did he allow us to pick the set-times, we also were able to pick the entire set list. Ten Souljers learned about 6 songs for us, and were happy to do so. Marty was so on top of every detail, especially with the band traveling internationally for our event. Their sound technician, Cole, was so great to work with and the sound system sounded amazing. 10 stars for all communication pre and post event.
Now for the actual performance: If I could give you one piece of advice for your wedding or event it is this: HIRE TEN SOULJERS! We had a 10 piece band, and every one of them was truly talented. The dance floor was packed for 4 hours and filled with all ages - from people in their young 20s to people in their 70s. Seriously, the only time people took a break was when the band took a break (and we requested they only take a 15 minute break throughout the whole evening - and played straight otherwise). Even our photographer couldn't help but dance as he was taking photos.
I don't want to give all my wedding secrets away, but we asked Ten Souljers to have a 4-piece horn and percussion section lead a parade from our ceremony to the reception. It was the biggest hit. They learned 2 songs for it, and they knocked each one out of the park.
My favorite part of the entire evening was when Marty and the band called up the bride (me) and groom (my husband) to the stage, to sing with them. From there, we really just stayed up on stage and sang and danced. It was truly the perfect night thanks to Ten Souljers.
I could go on and on about Ten Souljers. I will end it with this: I am trying to throw more parties just so I can hire Ten Souljers again. They are the best.Sent on 03/09/2019
Ten Souljers Band's reply:Wow back at ya Andrea!! Every sentiment above is cordially reciprocated! Thank you for such a flattering review. It makes all the hard work and long hours for something I am so passionate about, very worth while. You (and Gavin) were a joy to work with from the get go. Your ideas, song suggestions, and creativity were outstanding. All we had to do was implement! San Juan island was heavenly! Fairytale wedding (quite literally) The ceremony right by the ocean in the most idyllic setting, and our horn section leading the guests from ceremony to reception was a masterplan!! Very proud moment for us right there! Agreed - Cole is the best! The sound was amazing. Above all, between us, we achieved what we set out to do every single wedding we perform. We made memories. Special memories. The party was unbelievable! Never to be forgotten!

I was a little bit hesitant at first to go with a band instead of a DJ for my wedding due to the cost difference, but after having Ten Souljers play at my wedding I realize that going with a band was completely worth it!! I had the 6-piece band from Ten Souljers and they were absolutely phenomenal. Their energy and talent were fantastic and they truly brought life to the party. The band was also great in that they were willing to learn and play a special song for my first dance with my husband, and Krystle (one of the lead vocalists) nailed every note. The band leader, Marty, was responsive throughout the whole organization process and ensured that my husband and I got what we were searching for. I would highly recommend this band to any bride and groom who is looking to have a memorable night and a band that every guest compliments!Sent on 26/01/2019
