"We just wanted to thank you so much for an amazing experience. Your band is awesome! Our guests complimented you so many times. The interaction when the singer comes into the crowd and dances was so much fun. With so many bands out there I just feel you guys fit us so well we would not change any second of it. The performance was perfect.Thanks so much!"
Greg and Maegan Parent - Wedding, October 6, 2012 at the Colonnade Hotel, Boston, MA
Soul Collective was so easy and enjoyable to work with start to finish. Jennifer was so personable and helpful through the whole process. When on site, the entire band went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect and in line with our vision. It could not have been any easier to work with them, such a pleasure!
Nicole Cushion, Max Ultimate Food - Private Party, September 29, 2012 at the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology, Boston, MA
I couldn't have asked for more. The band was perfect and everyone loved them. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Jennifer and the entire band. The songs, vocals and sound system were all amazing. Thank you for making a special day even more so!" - Teri and Steve Rysz
Wedding, September 22, 2012 at the Eastward Ho! Country Club, Chatham, MA
I cannot begin to thank you enough for your amazing performance at our wedding. I was blown away by Soul Collective's talent and ability to read our crowd so well! I've received so many compliments from so many of our wedding guests. Thank you so much for assisting with keeping the wedding "flowing" and keeping the reception fun!”
Meghan Tosto - Wedding, August 11, 2012 at Belmont Hill School, Belmont, MA
Fabulous… they really made the night memorable. Multiple people have commented to us that the band was AMAZING and that they danced all night! What more could you ask for?
Kathryn Barrett – Wedding, August 20, 2011 at Round Hill Mansion, Dartmouth, MA
They truly were outstanding and made our wedding so fun!
Beth Ferrari, Wedding, July 23 2011 at The Connors Center, Dover, MA
Amazing! Our guests kept asking who the band was b/c they loved the music and were dancing all night :)
Liane Young - Wedding, June 25, 2011 at The Seaport Hotel, Boston, MA
The music/entertainment was perfect…I could not have asked for a better band. Everyone was raving (still raving! I don’t think there was one person left in their seat once Jennifer got the crowd going!?
Lauren Chiarenza – Wedding - August 14 , 2010 at Hyatt Harborside – Boston
I loved working with the entire band. The mic system for the service was perfect, and the musicians during the cocktail hour were also great. We had a dancing crowd and everyone had a dancing good time. Thanks for all your work on helping to make Amy and Jesse’s wedding such a fabulous event.”
Fran Bourne - Wedding, June 12, 2010 at Bourne Farm – Cape Cod
Incredible! In line with all of the other rave reviews, they had everyone on the dance floor all night. Our wedding party was up on stage with them singing and dancing. Jennifer is an absolute pleasure to work with and she, OJ and Chops were incredible vocalists. A huge thanks to the entire band for making our wedding such a spectacular event!”
Mary Gallaudet – Wedding - June 5, 2010 at Wianno Club –Osterville, MA
They really rocked our wedding! Their rendition of Rolling Stones Satisfaction was unbelievable. Jennifer’s voice during Wind Beneath My Wings made me cry. They are fun and funky and made our reception so great! I’m so glad we decided to book them as opposed to getting a DJ (our original choice). Every song was an amazing performance in itself.
An awesome band – so much better than any of the other “Top” Boston Wedding bands I’ve seen. They’re like a hidden gem that more people should know about! “
Monica Pandolfi - Weddimg, May 15 , 2010 at – Andover Country Club – Andover, MA
The Best! Everyone danced all night. They made the whole wedding with the music that they played. Their voices are fabulous along with the talent of the rest of the band. Guests are still raving about them. Thank you!”
Laurie Bergeron – Wedding - October 10 , 2009 at The International in Bolton, MA
We were very happy. They were professional and kept the party going with just the right blend of fun and style. They played a huge role in the wedding being great. Everyone commented on the music and the dance floor was packed all night.”
Arlene Mercier - Wedding - September 26 , 2009 at Wentworth By The Sea Resort – Rye, NH
…the dancefloor was packed, EXCELLENT musicians and great personalities!!! They got the flow of the party perfectly! Please let the band know that Steve and I were so pleased. They were so much fun and made the wedding perfect. We appreciate them traveling so far and would use them again in a heartbeat. Please feel free to use us as a reference, we would give them a glowing review!!! Thanks again”
Kate Meyersburg – Wedding - September 19 , 2009 at The Equinox Resort
They were fabulous. I was thrilled. Everyone LOVED them – WOULD RECCOMEND THEM IN A MINUTE TO ANYONE. THANK YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH
Cheryl Simons – Wedding - September 12 , 2009 at The White Cliffs Estate
I had to write this letter to tell you all how wonderful you all are. I have never been to a wedding where a band sounded so good right down to the singers almost sounding like the artist who actually sang the song. You were all outstanding, but especially the front singer. He really got the crowd into the wedding by coming on the dance floor and dancing and singing with the guests and everyone loved that. Also, every musician played every note perfectly and all the singers sang every note flawlessly. My telephone has not stopped ringing saying how they never have danced so much at a wedding. All the guests that I have spoke to say they danced because you all were so terrific. At the end of the night they were chanting more, more, more. I think I want to become a wedding crasher just to come listen to you all and dance. I will definitely recommend this band to anyone looking for an outstanding band to play for any event. Thank you all so much again.”
Mary Caforio – Wedding - August 22 , 2009 at Belle Mer
The whole experience was a real pleasure. I was so incredibly pleased and impressed with the band. I wish I could hear them again. They MADE my wedding what it was. Guests cannot stop raving about how awesome the band was. We had an AMAZING reception and I owe a lot of that to the band – they truly knocked our socks off!!!! Thank you!
Kathleen Early – Wedding - June 13, 2008 at Worcester Country Club
Excellent!! “The band was very accommodating to our schedule of events. We had a live auction component – which had an unpredictable end time. The band broke out during the auction and immediately brought the crowd back to the dance floor once the bidding was over!” We were incredibly satisfied with the entertainment.
Diane Griffin - Fundraising Event - August 30, 2008 at Gillette Stadium
Hi Jennifer, I wanted to thank you for everything last week. You and the band were fantastic, everyone has been raving about you this week! We really appreciate you being a part of our wedding thanks again! Best,
John M. Markos – Wedding - November 15 , 2008 – Cranwell Resort – Lenox, MA
I gave Jennifer the name of a song that I wanted to dance to with my son. Wasn’t able to find it on a CD etc so she said she hadn’t heard the song but would do her best. I gave her that info on Wednesday and she sang it perfectly on Saturday to not a dry eye in the place!! I can’t tell you what that meant to me……..
Joan Burke - Wedding – October 18, 2008 at Wequassett Inn in Chatham, MA
The experience was wonderful….On behalf of Sarosh and myself, I wanted to send a quick e-mail to tell you how wonderful Jennifer and the entire band was at our wedding on Sunday, October 12.
Piya Sarawgi & Sarosh Fenn - Wedding – October 12 , 2008 at Roger Williams Park, Providence, RI
Freestyle rocked! They listened to our requests and played to our audience. The band members were full of energy and enthusiasm. They sounded almost as good as having the ‘real’ artists in the room ; – ) Plus, they seemed to be having fun, which kept the momentum rolling. We would happily hire the band again, and would welcome any opportunity to go to a gig they were playing. The lead singer Jennifer was a pleasure to work with. Not only does she have a phenomenal voice, she is perky, organized and easy to work with. I wish continued success for Freestyle and all of its band members!
E. Chernak - Wedding – September 20, 2008 – The Natick Center For Arts, Natick, MA
The band was great! They had all of our guests dancing from the moment we walked in the room. The music choices were perfect and played at all the right times. Our wedding was a great success and the music was a big part of that success. Thanks!”
Sara & Mike - Wedding – July 26, 2008 at Wequessatt Inn- Chatham, Cape Cod
They exceeded all that we expected! They had the room rocking from the first song to the last (we had to extend the wedding a half hour more, everyone was having so much fun). Please thank all the members of the band for making my daughter’s wedding reception so terrific. Thanks again.”
Paula Clark – Wedding, September 29, 2007 at Wychmere Harbor Club – Harwichport, Cape Cod
Everyone told us all night long how amazing the band was. They played a major role in making our wedding such a fun and unforgettable event. They were excellent in every way. I can’t say enough great things about them. They really read the crowd well, played and preformed beautifully and even learned a song we had requested. We were overly impressed. Thank you so much!”
