"I'm just writing to say a big thank you for the great contribution Soul Rites made towards a fabulous evening of entertainment at the Mayor's Charity Ball.
Most of the guests were up and dancing as soon as the band struck up the first chord and the dance floor continued to be filled until the last note was played. Please pass on
my thanks to all the band members for helping to make the Mayor's Charity Ball a truly memorable evening."
- Councillor Ken Smith JP
"Thank you to all the band for putting on another spectacular evening of entertainment."
- Paul, Rhodrons Club
"Soul Rites played for my 50th birthday party. They were incredibly professional in the lead up to the event, making arrangements and with the setting up. The evening itself was a huge success. The band had people, of all ages, dancing from virtually the start of the set.
The set list was brilliant, and everybody who attended the party said what a fantastic time they had had, and were full of praise for the band. The party was everything that I had hoped for and that was mainly due to Soul Rites and their fantastic music.
I can't recommend them highly enough."
"Soul Rites lived up to their promise of packing the dance floor ! They had a great sound and energy and were lovely people to boot ! "
- Lisa, Charity Fundraiser, Shepperton Studios
"A big thank you to you and the rest of the band for another excellent performance last night. It is a wonderful spectacle to see ten fine musicians lined up on our stage and your overall sound is terrific."
"Soul Rites lit up my 60th Birthday Party at the Queens Stand, Epsom Racecourse, and really 'wowed' my guests with their lively and engaging sound and terrific range of numbers, such that we could literally have danced all night!!"
"First time that Soul Rites had performed at the Rhodrons club in Chessington, and it definitely won't be the last. The music was sweet and they had the dance floor full all night. So many people commented that it was a great night and they can't wait to see them back there. A big thank you to Peter and all the rest of the band, you put on a fantastic show - see you back at the Rhodrons in 2015."
"Thank you for a brilliant evening - the music was great and you created a wonderful atmosphere."
"What a treat for us to have all three of your wonderful vocalists as well as excellent playing from all the musicians, and a great choice of soul material. A special thank you to your sound engineer for achieving a perfect sound balance and setting the volume exactly right for the difficult club acoustics……...and giving us a professional standard performance that would have impressed a venue ten times our size We hope that our lively audience made the evening as enjoyable for you to perform, as it was for us to hear."
- Nigel, West End Social Club
"Soul Rites are a top quality party band guaranteed to get everyone up on the dance floor."
- Graham, Jagz Bar & Music Club, Ascot
"We wanted to write to thank you so much for the amazing gig on 29th June. Everyone has commented on what a great band you are. The evening was a success for our pre-school as we raised nearly £600."
- Rainbow's End
"Wow, thank you to all the band. What an amazing afternoon, thank you so much."
"The 9 piece band Soul Rites were highly recommended to me so I checked them out at a couple of gigs and promptly booked them (a year ahead)
for our 2012/13 News Years Eve Dinner Dance. They were a spectacular success, exhibiting quality musicianship and an infectious set choice coupled with enthusiasm and humour. We book many bands at our club and I can honestly say that Soul Rites are the very best
So much so that our Captain has requested we book them again, for the Dinner Dance in September. This band puts 'feet on the dance floor' - and keeps them there."
"Please thank all of your band for a WONDERFUL time on Sat. Everyone was brilliant especially Abi and Marcello."
- Margaret & Graeme
"Please pass my sincere thanks to the whole band for a fantastic performance at our club last night. As you know, we have live music at the club every week but your performance was quite exceptional. Outstanding singing, great musicianship and a terrific choice of material. It is also an added pleasure to see a band who are clearly enjoying playing together and share this with the audience. The feedback from everyone there was very enthusiastic (including the bar staff ......who are not easily impressed!)."
- Nigel, West End Social Club
"Thank you very much for an extremely enjoyable evening. Soul Rites enthusiasm and professional manner is a credit to you all. Your sweet soul music was great, enjoyed equally by the older and younger members of our club. Any club or pub would be delighted with your gig. Thanks again guys (and Abi) look forward to seeing you again next time."
"Thank you Soul Rites for your amazing set on our wedding day! From our first dance till the end you guys were perfect and really made our night. Our guests loved it too and you have gained many new fans. We couldn't have asked for more. x"
"Absolutely stonking night. Brought friends along after seeing you a couple of months ago and they were not disappointed. How you guys manage to get everyone up singing, dancing and losing themselves in just a pub is truly amazing. Love what you do. Thanks for another great time"
"Five of my friends went to the Worcester gig on my recommendation and had a terrific night. Thought the band were brilliant, played really well together, were tight, with great singers - they loved 'Valerie.' They are already organising to bring other of their friends to the next gig"
