To the Spirit of Soul Dance Band:
  I haven't enjoyed a group with such energy and charisma and class in years. Thank you for treating us to special evening. Your passion and enjoyment for entertainment is a joy to watch.

  So, my initial thinking was that a band from Johnson City, TN could not compete with Atlanta, Charlotte, or other southern bands. WRONG WAS I. The Spirit of Soul Dance Band is nothing short of awesome. They have energy, style, and panache. The instrumentation is exceptional and the range of voices surprising. I would definitely hire them again and I highly recommend them to you. Unlike some other bands we interviewed, SOSDB had no hidden charges. They were quick to make sure all our wishes were honored and choreographed correctly. Set up was a dream. These people are the BEST.

  The Lord's hand was in every aspect of Stacey and Jeff's wedding. He united them and the Spirit of Soul band made our reception very special!! The music was AWESOME and everyone LOVED IT!!
  Having the Spirit of Soul perform made the evening totally perfect!! Our guests could sit and enjoy even if they didn't dance ....but your music made us all want to stay on the dance floor all night!!!!!! We were so blessed to have Spirit of Soul with us to make Stacey and Jeff's wedding weekend perfect!!
   God bless each of you!

  Dear Members of the Spirit of Soul:
  David and I just cannot say thank you enough to you all. We have gotten so many comments on how much everyone loved the band and your music selections. We had a specific picture in mind of what our "perfect band" would be like, and you really were just perfect. Thank you for making our wedding day so much fun and so memorable. It really meant so much to us that you all were our band and represented us so well on our wedding day.
  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Mandy and David

  I cannot express how happy I am that we had the opportunity to work with the Spirit of Soul Dance Band. They made the entire process easy, and I went into my wedding day with no worries that everything would be perfect. And it really was! We received so many compliments from our guests on how much they enjoyed the music. We really could not have picked a more perfect band for our wedding!

  The Spirit of Soul rocked the house on the first night of Fun Fest. We all enjoyed singing and dancing along with such a talented group of entertainers. The selection of songs got EVERYONE up on their feet and set the tone for the week!
   This was the first chance many locals had heard the band and all were very complimentary. Thank you all for getting the party started!

  The Spirit of Soul Dance Band is certainly the #1 Soul and R&B band I have had the pleasure of dancing and listening to. They play MY kind of music, i.e. Motown, early rhythm & blues and some classic party songs of the 60's and 70's. The horn section is great, lady background singers can't be beat, the lead singer is classic and of course, the remainder of the band is beyond best. I follow them whenever I can as they are far and few between.

  Wow! New Year's Eve was awesome! "Thank You" to the Spirit of Soul for a fantastic evening of music, dancing and fun. My son said yesterday, "I have lots of good memories from last night." Coming from a 20-year-old college student, that, my friends, is high praise!
  Every song was terrific. John overheard a lady say, "Every song they play can be danced to." Did you notice how crowded the dance floor was with every song?
  Also, many age groups were represented and everyone, from the youngest to the more mature, danced the night away in total enjoyment. A band that can play music for the enjoyment of every generation is truly gifted. I don't know much about music, but I do know GREAT music when I hear it.

  Thank you, I am so glad you thought everything was pretty. I know you do a lot of events, so that makes it more special. Your band is wonderful, fun, and the best I have ever worked with...what a pleasure!
  I hope our paths cross again, please let the rest of the band know.
   Thank you again,

  To the Spirit of Soul Dance Band:
  Spirit of Soul Dance Band spans the generations with music that makes the feet move, the body sway, the mind jive, and the heart groove! It's a blast every time!

  It was so much fun documenting the main attraction at the Kingsport TN FunFest. The Spirit of Soul Dance Band?s 70s & 80s music mixed with R&B and Beach music made it very difficult to keep my camera focused and move my body at the same time. The vocals were amazing and the horn section was unsurpassed. And the awesome drummer ? well, he kept the beat going all night.
  People filled the downtown streets of Kingsport dancing and swinging to the sounds of SOS. The band played for two hours and after three encores I think the crowd would have stayed for another two hours! Even people who were sitting were moving something and clapping to the beat. Adults and kids of all ages enjoyed this July night swinging to the sounds of Spirit of Soul. It was pure fun! I can?t wait to spend time with this #1 dance band in East TN again!
