Soulful Sounds is an amazing band! I wanted to let everyone know how happy we were with Soulful Sounds at our annual Administrative Professionals Day event. We thought you would be good based on the recordings you send me, but you totally blew our expectations away. You are so much better in person. Your song selection and instruments were absolutely amazing. I had several people tell me you were the best band they had ever heard at this type of event. Thank you again for making the event so much fun for everyone.
All the best, Clara
I had a great time listening to this group they were awesome they played all the music that I truly love and everyone was engaged by singing, dancing, snapping fingers, rocking in their seat. We had a great time they are wonderful players without a doubt... Matthew, Tom and Malcolm can play any time for me and I will keep them on file for future events.
My group hired Matthew and Soulful Sounds for our Christmas Party. We were so surprised that they knew so many hits and even played a few unexpected songs from requests! I would definitely hire them again for any occasion.
These young men brought it to the table! They played at our Christmas Gala. They fully engaged an audience full of women. We sang and danced to familiar and nostalgic tunes! Truly entertaining! Highly recommended for any event!
The young men performed for our 2016 Holiday Party. They are a talented group offering an array of musical selections. They were well prepared and kept everyone entertained the entire evening. I highly recommend Matthew and his band and I would definitely use their services again.
Soulful Sounds was the perfect fit for my family's recent holiday party.
They were prompt, cordial and were very interactive with our guests while playing which made the party that much more fun.
Mathew and his band entertained us at the Christmas party all night. He knew exactly what to play for our age group. They are current as well as old school.We really enjoyed their sounds.I would definetly recommened these young men to play for any event in the near future.
Matthew and The Band were awesome. Not only did they sound great, but they had such a presence.
Some of the group was dancing, clapping their hands and all of us throughly enjoyed the music of Matthew and The Band.
I would love to hear them again and certainly recommend them to others.
They were OUTSTANDING.
Matthew A. Richards plays a mean sax. His combo entertained us to the max at our Christmas Party . Kudos!!
Matthew and his band provided just the right touch to a holiday gathering of friends and family. They were able to assess the mood of our group and play directly to it. Great selection of holiday tunes, soulful jazz and "get up out of your seat pieces."
I loved how they interacted with our group. I look forward to seeing them at other functions and would recommend them in a heartbeat!!!!
Awesome, performed at our Xmas event, not only very talented but professional, warm and inviting . Loved all the music.
Mathew, Tom and Malcolm performed for our organization on December 11, 2016 in Hudson Valley NY. They are a group of talented young men who danced and played music we all loved. They are a highly recommended group whom we look forward to working again with in the near future.
I was blown away by this group. I saw them at a christmas party, and they were fantastic. Everyone enjoyed them. Purely professional. I will be using them for some of my future functions. Matthew came with a keyboardist and Bass player. Wonderful sounds and even prompted some of the ladies to dance to the music. Please do not pass this group up.
I couldn't be more pleased with the services provided by Matthew and his band! Prompt, so friendly, and they truly engaged with the over 50 friends that attended my annual holiday shindig. His warm smile is equal to his gift of saxophone and their 3 piece band ran through hits from Sade to Justin Timberlake! I am planning another party JUST for the chance to have them perform again. Outstanding!
We were lucky to find Matthew to play for our wedding with short notice. He worked with us to select the perfect playlist for our outdoor affair. It was such a beautiful touch. He was professional and had such a positive energy that almost a year later, we had to have him play for our babyshower. All of our guests were highly impressed. You will not be disappointed! Thank you Matthew!!
