Jeremy Vine

“Dear Tom,

We've just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to send you a note to say how grateful we are to Hand Fulla Soul for your EPIC performance at our wedding. When we started wedding planning, our top priority was good music. We wanted to set a specific atmosphere that was fun and classic with a modern twist. You and the team certainly delivered on that goal!

Everything from the first dance song to our special serenade to each other, and every song in between was perfect. The dance floor was packed the entire night and the energy was amazing. It was like you broke into our itunes and picked each song specifically for us! We are still getting comments about how incredible the band was and how much fun everyone had dancing.

We cannot thank you enough for your contribution to the best day of our lives. Please pass on our thanks to your amazing singers too, who were just absolutely amazing the whole night.

If there are specific places where a review would be most helpful to the band ie google, facebook or wedding supplier sites, please let me know. We'd love to help spread the word about how amazing you are!

Sarah and Nick - Wedding Client

Colin – wedding client

"Many thanks for helping make our wedding celebrations so fantastic.  Thanks to your band's talent and energy everyone was up and dancing from the first song!

We really appreciated you learning our first dance song especially for us - we loved every second of it.

We'd thoroughly recommend you to anyone looking for a professional, friendly and funky band that appeals to many ages and tastes and we hope to hear you again at some point in the near future."

Rachel and Jonathan Dickson - Wedding Client

“Dear Tom and the Band,

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful uplifting music and atmosphere you showered us with on Saturday night.  So many of our guests have congratulated us on finding you. We thought you added a professional touch to the whole evening. Your selection of music was just right!!!

And thank you for making the effort to add some requested tunes to your set at short notice especially our version of "The Beat Goes On" for Rishi.

I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending you to our friends.

Thanks to you all and very best wishes.”

Bob Malston – Birthday Party Client

“Dear Tom and Hand Fulla’ Soul, I just want to thank you for the amazing job you all did at our gala dinner. There is no way we could possibly ever thank you enough. You made our evening really enjoyable and all of our guests are still talking about how amazing you were. The music was simply awesome and the energy and talent you all have is truly incredible. Everyone loved you guys. You are great! Thanks for everything!”

Filippo De Bellis and BVDSG – Corporate Event Client

“Tom and the band raised the roof, belting out well rehearsed soul classics.

I have booked the band up immediately for next year and have recommended them on countless occasions. They are already booked for my 40th birthday celebrations and no doubt there will be many more dates in the future.

Michael Pearson – Repeat Client for New Years’ Eve and Birthdays

“Dear Hand Fulla’ Soul,

Thank you so much for playing at our party last week.  The whole night was absolutely brilliant!  You guys sounded so great and got everyone dancing!  In fact so many of our guests have commented on how much they loved the band!

I hope that you enjoyed the evening as much as all of us did!”

Rob MacDonald – Birthday Client

“Dear Tom,

I wanted to thank you for the amazing contribution you made to Sarah and Paul’s wedding reception in April.  Everyone told us what a fantastic effort the band made, and we all felt that you got it absolutely right to carry the day in to its final festivities!  In particular it was just right to dance to – everyone said so!

Sarah and Paul felt that the day was just what they had hoped for – and you and your friends had a big part in it.  Please pass on our thanks to them.

Best Wishes,

Bob Whalley – Wedding Client

"Thank you so much for playing the other night at our Christmas party.  Everybody was full of praise with how great and professional you all were.  You really made the party and we will definitely be hiring you next year, or before if we need a band!"

Katie Dolan of Zouk Ventures – Corporate Event Client

“I booked this band for works sales awards dinner last night, they were excellent and would thoroughly recommend them :)”

Dawn Perry – Arval UK

"I just wanted to take a moment, having now returned from honeymoon, to say another enormous thank you. No words can actually do justice to just how amazing Hand Fulla Soul were on the evening! The feedback we have had from all the guests has been overwhelming and hugely deserved. The fact that the dance floor was heaving for the full 2 hours that you guys were performing is a reflection of how outstanding you guys were. Please can you send a huge heart felt thank you to all of the band as they completed what was a perfect day for Jo and I.

Please could you especially thank the singer and the guitarist who played in the church. They absolutely blew us away! The Etta James rendition was simply breathtaking and the Candi Staton song has huge personal meaning to myself and the best man, having lost our best friend 10 years ago and this was 'our song'. There was not a dry eye in the church on the grooms side.......

We have already discussed when we can next have a function in which we need to hire you! Perhaps my 40th in a few years.

Best Wishes"

Andy and Jo Boyle - Wedding Client

just wanted to say a very big thank you to you and the band for Saturday. We believe you made the evening, we've had so many calls and texts etc on how brilliant you were. It really was the icing on the cake for us.

Hope to use you again in the near future.

Many thanks”
