The band were great, excellent to work with and perfect for our audience
The Emperors of Soul were a fantastic addition to Saturday's wedding. They started our night off in true style and got guests up on the dancefloor from the get go. They were a pleasure to deal with and I enjoyed working with them. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking for a fun group with fab Motown grooves!! Kindest regards, Charlotte Miller, Creative Director
To Marie and all at Warble, What can I say that could best describe The Emperors of Soul? Words cannot express how great they were and how much everyone loved their performance, they had everyone up and having a ball straight away and as individuals they mingled and danced with the guests adding to the great atmosphere they created. We had a night we will remember for the whole of our lives and our 300 guests are still calling to express how our party was the best they had ever been to. Thank you E.O.Soul for your great part in our party's success and to Warble for making it so easy to research and choose entertainers, you were so kind and efficient I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to come back to you again (I am searching for a reason to have another party and do it all over again) Thank you a million times over.
Hello Matt, you were very good at responding to any questions I had and I would definitely use you again. The booking process was exellent as and as for the Emperors, they were beyond our expectations! I would recommend them to anyone should you require a testimonial.
