Excellent

The Soul Men are fantastic! They played for our cocktail party that we had in conjunction with a trade show, and our customers LOVED them. We had several requests for them to come back next time. Communication was excellent, they really know how to work a crowd, and they went above and beyond to work with our limited, small company budget. Special thanks to Dan's wife, Cyndi, who is also their manager-- I just told her what I had in mind and how much money I had to work with, and she made all the arrangements versus me trying to piece everything together. Really made life easy. I can't wait to hire them again. As for the performance-- you will be amazed! These guys are extremely talented. They have all the "Jake and Elwood" moves-- in fact, I forgot they weren't the actual Blues Brothers! Thanks to them, our event was a huge success!

Review by Cindy P.

Awesome Tribute Band. We hired them for a high school graduation party and the kids loved them, got up on stage and sang with them, and were dancing. Of course the adults loved them too. They really made the party so much more fun. My son's party was voted Best Graduation Party for the Class of 2011

The soul men were fantastic. Their energy and enthusiasm was contagious. They got the guests on their feet and got them to participate even though many of them did not think they wanted to. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a high energy fun fun fun party.

Review by crystal r.

I hired the Soul Men for my husband's 40th birthday party in Grafton, WV. They did a FANTASTIC job. Everyone at the party commented about how great they did and how much fun they had! The guys did a great job of getting a "stuffy" crowd clapping, dancing, and singing. It was a blast!

Review by Chris R.

We hired The Soul Men to authentically re-create The Blues Brothers phenomenon with our band at a city concert. We have actually hired them many times. They are a hoot! They are the life of the party. The guys are equally good on stage as well as schmoozing and engaging the guests off stage. These guys are great!

Review by Tim B.

I met them first as they were a featured act on my stage for a huge car cruise special event in Ocean City, MD. The crowds loved their performance which was impressive. This led me to recommend them for a corporate event in Altoona, PA, and then recently in Independence,OH,I sahred stage with them again, and as before, they were crowd favorites!

Testimonials

Greetings Soul Men!

Thanks so much for rockin' the house at The Rock and Roll Auction 2 for The Drive!

The Soul Men really delivered a solid, entertaining show! Their portrayal of The Blues Brothers was "As Righteous As A Fist!"
Right down to their knuckles...(Jake, Elwo...od!)

From that fabulous entrance...(WOW, that was sooo f'in COOL!) to the way
that they worked in local references, and the Sponsors- the
thanking Miller Beer into "Hey Bartender" (are you kidding me? They LOST THEIR MINDS!!!) to the dance steps and acrobatic tricks.
I mean, they went toe-to-toe with Brett Michaels AND Styx...even without a live band supporting them! Then to go on to the VIP area and schmooze with our special guests was above and beyond our expectations!

Concert goers could be overheard after the event still talking about The Soul Men!

I have been a Blues Brothers fan since I was 12. I never had a chance to see them live. I can honestly tell anyone, that I really felt like while they were up there, The Soul Men WERE the Blues Brothers. I had goose bumps, Man.

I'm So Glad We Made It...
Your New Friend and Fan In Detroit,

Joel Morgan
