  • Soul Session is nothing short of amazing. We worked with Garland throughout the planning stages and he was sure to keep in touch especially the few months leading up to our big day. We spent hours talking on the phone; planning, going over a timeline, going through song choices and he provided the best input. Soul Session truly makes the party. With this band you do not have to worry about a single thing!! They know how to throw a party, get people on their feet, commentate throughout and it is obvious ho inch they care about providing you with the best service to make your wedding day unforgettable!! I cannot imagine having any others than the members of Soul Session to celebrate with us and to get the party started on our wedding day!! They are very diverse in their song choices and can play nearly anything you ask of them! They are creative and SO FUN!! A fantastic band, fantastic people and now great friends! Thank you Soul Session and Garland for the most memorable experience o... Read more

  • Garland was amazing. He can really read a crowd and he really helped pull together the kind of party we wanted. Him and the band are so talented and have incredible range. Everyone told us how much they loved the band at our wedding. We are Soul Session fans for life!

  • I don't even know where to start with this review because Garland is just the BEST. The one thing we knew right after getting engaged is that we wanted Soul Session to be our band. Garland brought such a fun energy to the wedding and planning process. He's almost like a wedding planner/entertainer all in one....he kept everything organized so the flow of the evening went perfectly. And of course the music was incredible. Do yourself a favor and hire Soul Session for your wedding!

  • Garland is THE BEST. When I look back at our wedding day I smile and think of how selecting Soul Session was the best decision we made! Garland knows exactly how to make each moment perfect and kept us laughing and dancing all night. It was so fun to plan out our wedding and get to know Garland, he made us feel like family. We have gotten so many compliments and rave reviews about Soul Session, we cannot recommend them enough!

  • If you are considering a D.J. or a Band? The answer is here... Soul Session..... HANDS DOWN! It was the best decision my future husband made to hire Garland Nelson and Soul Session for our wedding. EVERYBODY loved them. My wedding was perfect! I had a hard time leaving the dance floor. I basically danced the entire night. All my guest couldn't stop telling me how much they LOVED the band. No regrets!

  • I love Garland. Garland was the DJ for our wedding and he made the party the success that it was. Garland is able to keep the flow of the evening and read the crowd to make sure everyone is having a great time all night long. He helped us plan the timeline for the day and gave us great advice. He provided the music for our ceremony, played acoustically during our cocktail hours, and DJ'd during the reception.

  • Garland Nelson and Soul Session are absolutely fantastic. Four months after our wedding, we still have family and friends telling us how our wedding was one of the best they've ever been to. Soul Session kept our dance floor packed the entire night, playing the perfect variety of songs. We didn't leave the dance floor the entire night and could have continued dancing for hours when the reception ended. Garland is also one of the most amazing people to help plan a wedding ceremony and reception. We spent many evenings on the phone with him talking through logistics, the flow of the evening and ideas for how to make each moment special. We didn't have to think about anything for a second once we hit our reception - Garland kept the evening flowing perfectly. We couldn't have done it without him.

  • We can't say enough to express how truly amazing G and Soul Session was on our special day. Before we booked them we were back and forth between a band or dj. Well - they offer both which helped us make our decision pretty easy! Starting from the planning process, G was so helpful. He gave us many different ideas and made us think outside the box. He really took time to make us feel comfortable with every single decision and gave us insight on what works based on his past experience. On the day of - they did not disappoint! From the ceremony music, cocktail hour and reception - everything was spot on and perfect! They got the party started and continued the entire night. The dance floor was full the whole time and EVERYONE was dancing (younger and older people)! We received so many compliments on how amazing they were. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would - I recommend Soul Session to anyone looking to host a great party.

  • Garland and his assistant made our wedding reception an event we will remember forever. From the instrumental music to the songs played during the reception, he met and exceeded our expectations. From beginning to end, Garland made our special day stress free and we enjoyed every minute of it.

  • I wish there were more stars to give!!! Garland & Soul Session MADE OUR WEDDING. I can't say enough about how AWESOME and AMAZING they were!!!! They completely rocked the event and had every single guest up and dancing. Garland ran the whole event (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, after party) like a total pro - my husband and I can't stop talking about how incredible he is, and how much we love him for making our wedding such a great party. Every single guest has commented on Soul Session and how fantastic they were - and coming from a group of manhattan-ites, that's always a compliment :) I can't recommend this band enough. Not possible. They are the absolute, un-disputed best. THE BEST!!!

  • Garland and his group, Soul Session, are absolutely out of this world! You will never meet a more professional, courteous, fun-loving, genuine person than Garland Nelson. What a class act both in person and in performance. Our meetings with Garland were always a blast and never stressful thanks to his great personality. He made sure we had anything and everything we wanted for our wedding music; from the music in the church, to the cocktail hour, and the reception itself. Everything that we said was a must-play was heard during the night. We had a small ensemble at the church, another small ensemble for the cocktail hour, and the full piece band for the reception with the DJ for our last hour. I can't even find words to say how great they were. Soul Session has such huge repertoire of songs it is unbelievable. Don't let there name fool you, they are much more than soul music!! Throughout the night we had at least a quarter of our guests ask us about Garland and Soul Session, s... Read more

  • I can not rate Garland and the rest of the band high enough!! We first saw Soul Session at a friend's wedding in Saratoga Springs 2 years ago and knew that we had to have them when our time came. We brought them all the way down to Baltimore! That's how much we loved their performance. We spent hours on the phone with Garland going over every detail of the night. And he remained just as excited as we were during every conversation. He paid attention to the type of music we wanted as well as songs that were special to us and our families that were played as surprises throughout the night. Truly wonderful and masterful musicians and INCREDIBLE entertainers. All of the guests were engaged throughout the night.... literally everyone was on the dance floor. I think I was the sweatiest bride in history but I didn't care because I was having too much fun dancing. Another thing, we did the full package meaning we had 4 of the musicians for the ceremony, a jazz trio cocktail hour, and then t... Read more
