    I can't thank you all enough for making our wedding the most amazing night EVER!! Everyone has been telling us that they enjoyed you guys so much. You guys seriously rock!! I didn't leave the dance floor all night! All my friends want me to tell them when your next show is....

    Hello AWESOME Soul Shadows!

    You took our entire Huntington Beach 4th of July crowd � grabbed them in the palms of your hands � and captured them like a kid catching fireflies in a jar... I watched the audience react to you � to your music � and I was overwhelmed. People were singing and dancing, clapping and cheering... The crowd got bigger and bigger and the excitement became contagious. There were times I almost expected to see a group dance by the audience. They were so caught up in your music � which, by the way, was THE perfect choice...! I KNOW I will see you again � and soon! You now hit my �favorite band� list (and everyone else�s!).


    Dear David and the entire cast of The Soul Shadows,

    We cannot thank you enough for making Kiki and Jake�s Wedding a most memorable evening! Our guests were blown away at how absolutely phenomenal you were�..many, many compliments and rave reviews! The music and singing were incredible, as was your ability to get everyone up and going�the evening was simply spectacular! Not a soul wanted the night to end�. You will certainly be recommended to our family and friends and we look forward to seeing you again very soon.

    We had such a great time at our wedding and a large part of that was the music, everyone kept saying to me "this band is so great" over and over. So thank you again we loved having you guys there.

    Kelly & Shaun

    We were extremely pleased with The Soul Shadows performance at our wedding. The band set the perfect tone - energetic, fun and classy! You played all the songs we requested and just as importantly, didn't play any that we requested not be played. The flow of the evening went perfectly thanks to all the announcements being made seamlessly and right on schedule. Our dance floor was packed all night and we received so many compliments from our guests about how great the band was! Our friends and family are still talking about the band a month later!

    Our wedding was like a dream for us and The Soul Shadows was an integral part of it. You exceeded all our expectations!

    Thanks again!

    Angela and Mike

    The band was awesome. I've had so many compliments from some of the most hard to please physicians. They loved the music and said it was the best ever. When we pick a date for next year, I will be contacting you and asking for the Soul Shadows again. I hope they'll be available.

    Take care,

    Just a short note to thank you for the wonderful job you and your band did at the St. Patrick's Party Saturday night ! Everybody loves your band and we all have such a great time ! We are so blessed to have such great people like you and your band members come to our parties and play for us ! The style of music you play is so "perfect" for our age crowd. We love it !

    'I'm using the Soul Shadows for my wedding next month. Their contact, David Blaney, has been awesome to work with. One of my favorite vendors. They have a few venues that you can check them out at if you want to hear them live first, and they will also send out a demo CD. If you have any questions, please ask!'

    'I have attended three or four different events where Soul Shadows was the entertainment and I have to say they really know how to put on a party! They are REALLY great! The band leader Dave is a great guy and easy to work with (coming from our friends who booked him). I think you will be very happy if you have them for your wedding!'

    'I second the Soul Shadows. Awesome! I can't say enough great things about them...everyone at the wedding was amazed and kept asking, where did you find this band?!'
