Great versatility Band.

Sound Proof made our 4th of July. Starting the event with some smooth jazz, shifting to some funk, ending with pop favorites--they adjusted their style when the entire party (30 some people) starting dancing and letting loose. Each musician was showcased with some mean solos, two great singers--tons of music talent here. The versatility in the music really made a difference. I think these guys would be great for all types of events and they can cater to your specific needs. We'll be hiring Sound Proof again, and some of our friends have already decided to hire them for a graduation party. A+.

They're Great!!!

We were extremely pleased with Sound Proof, they are very versatile. They performed jazz during dinner; and dance music afterwards. They get everyone up on the dance floor!! Including people, who I have never seen dance before. We have worked with other bands and the past and weren’t pleased with their performance; Sound Proof is the best entertainment group that we have worked with and we will definitely hire them again.
