  • Jeff, the band manager, is a pro. He knows the importance of flow and momentum at a wedding. His expertise and easy going attitude removes stress from the day. You’re in good hands! The band is not an ordinary wedding band. These are true musicians who are there to perform and feed off the energy of the people. Everyone danced- young and old. We didn’t want the night to end!

    Anne- thanks for the outstanding review. We had a great time at your wedding. You and Jonathan were a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding day. We really appreciated the way the band was taken care of as well, especially knowing that we travelled from NJ to northern Massachusetts. It was truly a highlight of our summer! All the best to you and Jonathan!! Jeff

  • Total Soul made our wedding legendary. The band as a whole is talented, but the singers have a knack for bringing people on the dance floor and giving the place to life. They played many of the songs we requested on our list; the most impressive was when they learned a new song for our first dance. (And he ROCKED IT!) Everyone says the bride and groom don’t get a chance to dance much at their own wedding, but we were on the dance floor the entire time. You couldn’t drag me off! Lastly, Jeff, the band director, was very easy to work with. He helped us play the music at the ceremony, introduced us for the first dance, and all the music in between breaks and eating. It was seemless and yet, it constantly kept the energy of the room up. All my friends kept saying “Who is this bad? Where did you find them? They are the best wedding band I have ever seen.” I’m so happy I did find them because they truly helped make my day the best day of my life.

    Thanks Michelle. We also had a great time performing for you and your guests. It was a very memorable night. All the best for many years of health and happiness to you and Paul! Jeff

  • Jeff & Total Soul were awesome in all respects. Their sound is excellent. They had all our guests on the dance flr (all our friends and parents’ friends) throughout the reception. While Motown may be their bread & butter, they have range, and play contemporary hits, classic rock, etc, and play it all quite well. The bands gets out on the dance flr & will get your guests amped up. We seldom saw anyone in their seats. Jeff was highly professional from our first interaction till after the event. He promptly responded to all calls/emails and his emails always addressed Qs/concerns. What is more, he was highly flexible...our event was in a small space & the venue was strict. Obviously, wedding bands are pricey. These guys provide ridiculous value. I paid 40% of what several friends paid & rec’vd what I believe was a superior product. We rec’vd a slew of compliments throughout the night & the following day re the band. Look no further.

  • Total Soul was the best money we spent on our wedding. Our guests had so much fun. The dance floor was full to capacity from beginning to end. The band took very few breaks and their energy and enthusiasm was contagious. They more than exceeded my expectations. We received more compliments on the band than I can even count. Prior to the wedding Jeff was always available to answer our questions. They were simply the best!!!!!!

  • BOOK TOTAL SOUL NOW! Seriously, this is the most amazing wedding band you'll ever hear. My father is a musician, so naturally we had multiple musician guests and all of them were saying how amazing the band was. From the start, Jeff was super easy to communicate with and very responsive to emails. He was flexible during the planning process, even when we threw a few last minute song requests their way. They are stellar musicians and know exactly what to play to keep the party going! The dance floor was packed all night. They are reasonably priced and are worth so much more! Book this band. You'll have such an awesome dance party!

  • I've never written an online review, but Jeff and Total Soul were so good that I feel compelled. Months after the wedding, so many friends and family still say how good the band were. The sound quality, energy, and showmanship were just incredible - I really can't think of a way to say how impressive they were. A couple of my musician friends (and play weddings and events) just stood there in awe, and everyone else danced non-stop. On top of that, Jeff was so easy and accommodating to work with, from the first phone call to his help coordinating on the day. It felt like he was organizing the wedding with us, not at all like someone who was being paid to do a job. You really can't go wrong here.

    Thank you for the review! I hope you and Kate are doing well and enjoying married life. It was a pleasure working with you and playing for all of your guests. Hopefully we can perform for you again soon! Best wishes- Jeff

  • I can not say enough how incredibly awesome Total Soul is!!! My husband and I attend a wedding when we first started dating and said "IF and when we get married we are hiring this band!!!" They were the first vendor I contacted after our engagement because we wanted to make sure they were available for whatever wedding date we chose. Jeff is very responsive via email and was professional through out the entire planning process. We got tons of compliments on how awesome they were for our reception!! They made our wedding night SO FUN!!! My husband and I spent hours dancing with our friends and family and I could not have asked for a more fun night. Jeff and all of the band members are very professional, friendly and obviously very talented! We had a rain shower before our ceremony and Jeff made sure to take care of everything regardless of the rain. I had absolutely no worries regarding the band come the wedding day because I knew he would take care of everything. I also really like how... Read more

  • Total Soul is outstanding in so many ways! We booked them for our November (day) wedding after seeing them at another wedding. The band's energy, talent, and professionalism are top-notch. Jeff was a pleasure to work with in planning, as he is very experienced and accommodating. Even for a day event, the band had our guests out dancing the entire time. For weeks after our wedding, our guests continued to comment on the band's exceptional performance! We could not have been happier with having Total Soul perform on our wedding day, and without any reservations we would highly recommend them for any event!

  • We were lucky to see Total Soul play at a family wedding in 2015, and knew that we had to book them for our wedding on August 27, 2016 in Lenox, MA. We cannot thank them enough for the fantastic addition they were. Jeff is wonderful and easy to work with, and the band is so very talented and fun. We had an absolute blast and Total Soul was just absolutely amazing. The #1 remark we had from guests was how phenomenal the band was. We had so many friends say that when they get married they have to have Total Soul play!

  • This band made our wedding day! They were so flexible and easy to work with. By far the best vendor we dealt with while planning our big day. They took it a step above! Amazing voices and awesome instrumentals. They had a perfect mix of down time and live music. Really had everyone out of their seats and dancing! Our wedding guests couldn't stop talking about them! One guest even decided to book them for her own wedding afterwards! Total Soul is the best! 7.16.16 D&A

  • BEST WEDDING BAND EVER! Total Soul was amazing. Our guests barely even ate their dinners because nobody wanted to get off the dance floor! From the moment they started playing, every song was a hit and the atmosphere was pure party. They sounded fantastic, and their singers also came and performed in the crowd sometimes. Mananger Jeff was fantastic to work with leading up the event. He was always prompt with responding to all my emails, and was very organized. He played all the songs we wanted, and also gave us a musician to use for our ceremony. Their lighting design was also fantastic. For north Jersey wedding bands, you are not going to get a better deal then Total Soul. Their price was a lot less than other similar bands. I would absolutely recommend using them for your wedding!

  • The music that “Total Soul” put out is incredible and it shows both the dedication and chemistry involved. Your ability to bridge generations between fabulous Motown and classic R and B and rock and roll from years past, with the pop and top 40 of today is amazing I am not blowing smoke, as I have personally been a big fan of Motown and beach music for a long time, but you guys consistently perform those songs as well or better than the original artists. All of the vocalists, male and female, without exception, are amazing. Each one contributes in different ways but all incredibly talented. The timing and quality of your back up musicians---horns, keyboard, guitar, percussion, is also, frankly, pretty amazing. Because of my work, I attend and have attended many corporate functions and large parties, with some good bands, often in Las Vegas. I have also been lucky to attend some wonderful weddings with good music. However, when it comes to putting out music that people love t... Read more

  • Hiring Total Soul was the BEST DECISION we made during wedding planning! We originally saw the band at a friend's wedding two years before. As soon as we got engaged, we knew we wanted to hire them. Despite the fact that they are from NY and our wedding was in Philadelphia, they had no problem traveling. From the start, Jeff was so receptive to my emails. We were engaged for 17 months and during that time, Jeff happily responded to my (many) emails and questions. Total Soul was so flexible! They were even happy to make changes when we requested different songs only a week before the wedding - they are truly AMAZING. The amount of energy they brought to our dance floor was unreal! We had people dancing the ENITRE time and their music was popular for people of all ages. So many of our guests have told us that they've never seen a wedding with so much dancing and said that Total Soul was the best band they have ever seen at a wedding! Their value is too good to be true - similar bands in ... Read more
