  • The Soul Sensations were on time, professional, full of energy and made our wedding event flow seamlessly from ceremony to cocktail hour and reception. Right from the start, they communicated with us to understand our needs and wants and then played the perfect songs so the dance floor was never empty. Every generation got up and danced! Our guests are still talking about how great this band was. We would absolutely recommend The Soul Sensations to anyone!

  • The band killed it. They were high energy, played a great mix of music, and had EVERYONE dancing. The Soul Sensations were everything we hoped for, and we’re so glad that we found them! Working with Cara, the lead singer and our emcee, was so easy leading up to the wedding. She was organized, responsive, and helpful. We worked with her to hire the band to provide music for all parts our wedding (at completely reasonable rates—other bands quoted us 3x more than them!). The solo guitarist did a lovely job for as our ceremony musician, a pianist and guitarist played contemporary cocktail hour music, and the full band was on deck to get the party started. We liked that the band played music geared for all generations: mostly oldies and Motown, with just enough top 40s, so that everyone could find something they liked. And, there wasn’t a single person that didn’t hit the dance floor, from my uncle doing the robot to my college roommates starting the limbo! People danced for ... Read more

  • The Soul Sensations were PHENOMENAL! They completely made our wedding - our guests are still talking about the band!! We had a very rainy night under a tent and they truly allowed us to dance in the rain - I have never seen a dance floor fill up as quickly as it did at our wedding and the set list we created together was a major crowd pleaser! We are now day dreaming about the next time we may have an event big enough to invite the Soul Sensations back to!

  • We had an amazing experience with the Soul Sensations! Doug, Cara and their team were a dream to work with. Their set list was incredible, and they were incredibly accommodating in terms of tailoring things specifically for our day! They played a fantastic jazz set for our cocktail hour and kept everyone dancing through the reception. They had a terrific vibe. We couldn’t have been happier with the flow of the evening!

  • We cannot say enough about the Soul Sensations for our October wedding! We actually booked them before our venue because we were so excited about them! They were very helpful from the beginning and we used them for the ceremony musicians (flute and guitar - gorgeous combo), the cocktail, dinner, and dancing music. They are so much more than just music, they kept the evening moving smoothly, checked in with us to make sure we were happy (and when one guest requested the macarena - no thanks!) and kept the party going! Cara and Doug L were so patient and flexible and their rates are very reasonable for the quality. Truly, we could not have asked for a better part of our wedding.

  • These guys were perfect. From the piano player at our ceremony, to the jazz band at our cocktail to the full band at the reception, these guys really rocked! They were great to work with ahead of the event to really plan out what we wanted and they really delivered. There were on time, friendly, took the time to learn a couple of new songs for us, and really kept the party going. When we pictured our wedding we pictured everyone having fun and dancing on the dance floor and this is exactly what we got. My wife and I did not even have time to make it around the room to say hello to our guests.. everyone had already made their way to the dance floor!!! which is exactly where we wanted to see everyone! Thank you Soul Sensations, you guys were awesome!

  • AMAZING- the guests from our Sept 2012 wedding cannot stop talking about how great the music was at our reception. We used the jazz group for the cocktail hour, and the full band during the reception. Overall, they were just perfect and appealed to guests of all ages. They helped with the flow of the evening, and were flexible with our various requests to make the event perfect. Very talented and fun group - would use them for future events without hesitation!

  • This band was fabulous! They had our guests up and dancing from the minute dinner was over until the very last song. The lead singer of the band, Cara Babich, was amazing- she could sing it all from Adele to The Black Eyed Peas! We are so happy that we chose this band, they are full of talent, charisma and energy!

  • The Soul Sensations are one of the best live bands we have ever heard, anywhere. They completely blew away all our guests at our recent wedding, and kept everyone on the dance floor all night. We had a very mixed crowd, all ages, all different musical tastes, and everyone absolutely loved the Soul Sensations. We received so many compliments throughout the night. Guests ran up to us on the dance floor and after the party were over to tell us how much they loved the band. They sounded fabulous; they are very talented and very musically tight. The singers were incredible and had a huge range. They even learned a song we requested and completely rocked it out. The Soul Sensations truly made our wedding reception into a party. We can’t recommend them enough.

  • September, 2009 To anyone who is looking for a fun, professional, and great-sounding band, we recommend the Soul Sensations without reservation. The music was excellent - and musically very tight. They rolled into number after number without a hiccup. At one point we had so many people dancing the floor was shaking. Our wedding was the second for both of us, and we had a wide range of ages among the guests, including many children 7-18, as well as grandparents, and everyone in between. Dan Belmont worked with us to quickly get a set list that was fun for everyone, with a real groove. Last, for those of you who worry about the details, these folks were easy-going and accommodated a last minute change of venue, with an acoustically tough room. They were courteous, very well dressed, they showed up on time, and set up ready to dance. We would hire them again and recommend them to anyone looking for a great, professional band that is not "scre... Read more

  • My wife and I hired The Soul Sensations for our wedding on May 30, 2009. As I was a bit picky about the sort of music I wanted for our party as well as about the quality of the musicians, only a few bands sufficed. My choice for The Soul Sensations was based on their (apparent) ability to capture the groove and feel of every song they covered, their quality vocalists, and the very reasonable price tag. The fact that we had to arrange our wedding from abroad made it even more difficult to fine tune all the details concerning the music (among lots of things). However, Mr. Daniel Belmont did an excellent job taking away our concerns, assisting us – by e-mail – through every step of the way. In case you are worried about the fact that their web site contains only studio samples: they perform just as well live. In fact, they rock! They really got the party going right away, and were able to keep our guests on the dance floor until the last song was over. We cannot even r... Read more

  • May, 2009 Having The Soul Sensations perform at our wedding was one of the best choices we could have made! We found them on the internet and immediately booked them “blind”. They were very responsive and professional via e-mail and their enthusiasm really came through. Since we had only heard their song sampler, we drove to one of their gigs in Berlin, CT, and after only one song, we knew that we had chosen a highly talented and entertaining group. After we saw that amazing performance, we became a little concerned in the opposite direction, since the venue where our wedding was planned—the Harvard Faculty Club—was tiny compared to the venue that they were playing at that night. However, after they set up and started the first set (jazz music during dinner), it was clear that their experience and talent make them a perfect fit for any size audience. The Soul Sensations really kept our guests entertained, everyone loved them and we got many many compliments about their ... Read more

  • The Soul Sensations definitely MADE our wedding. They were super fun, easy to work with, and flexible. They even backed us up while we sang a few songs at the beginning of our wedding, and were able to provide us with a guitarist for our ceremony. Cara, the lead singer, is especially fun and can act as an emcee for your event - she's really good with names! The Soul Sensations offered to learn three new songs for us, included in the total price - one of the songs probably could have been better rehearsed, but it was fun nonetheless. We look forward to seeing them again when they play in our area! Very affordable considering they are an AWESOME BAND! A huge hit with all our guests - motown, soul, pop, contemporary, even a bit of swing.
