“My husband Danny and I had been trying to decide whether or not to get married in Cuba as we had spent one of our best holidays there partying to their inimitable brand of salsa music. However, as this meant that many of our friends and family would be unable to attend we decided to bring the flavour of Cuba to London instead! So we booked Soneando for our Wedding Party having heard them play at an open air venue in the City and they certainly added that essential atmosphere. The booking process was straightforward and the communication leading up to the big day was excellent - giving us peace of mind that everything would happen as planned - extremely necessary when there are so many other things to arrange as well. On the day itself the band struck exactly the right note, whilst we were eating dinner they played background music to get us all in the mood and then, once we had all finished, they stepped it up a couple of gears to ensure that even the most reluctant of guests were up dancing and enjoying themselves. We had asked Soneando if they could arrange for a couple of dancers to come with them to teach a few salsa steps - this was a great move too to get people over the intial fear of not being able to salsa. At the end of the night everyone was full of praise for the band as they had all enjoyed themselves so much. I would have no hesitation in booking Soneando again and would thoroughly recommend them for a real feel-good Cuban experience.”

“It was such a good party that it has taken us a week or so to recover. The band, Soneando were absolutely brilliant! They were exactly what we wanted and in fact I invited my salsa teacher who danced all night and joined them on the stage at one point. We were all in fancy dress as latinos and the whole night was a rip-roaring success. I know the band will get more venues from that night alone and we would love to know where they are playing so that we can all keep in touch and follow them like a bunch of ageing groupies! We managed to transform our village hall into downtown rio for a night and I have to say without Soneando it would not have worked. Hope they enjoyed it too. Please pass on our best wishes and thanks to them. They were class.”

“Soneando were absolutely fantastic at the event and really added a touch of wow factor to our 50s Havana themed ball. Sara was in touch well before the event about what we were looking for and delivered on the day beyond what we were expecting. We asked for some dancers to come along to get people in the spirit and learning some simple steps which had everyone on their feet dancing. We've had so many compliments about the band and dancers and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for something a little different.”

“We booked Soneando for our wedding - we love cuban music and wanted something special and a bit different. Soneando didn't disappoint - our guests loved the band and they exceeded all our expectations. They were relaxed and fun- and really got the crowd involved. Thank you so much for making our wedding so memorable.”

“Just writing to say a big thank you to pass on to Soneando. They were fab and really made the night for us. Lots of people got up and danced and it was so refreshing not to have a disco with the same old tired hits coming out. The band were fun together and the Jesus was a hit with all the ladies - very appropriate for this time of year! Please thank them on our behalf. Best wishes and I know it's early, but Merry Christmas!”

“Soneando were a gret success. Small audience but thoroughly enjoyed. Everyone danced ALL evening. Thank you!!”

“Thank you for your email you sent back in August. Just wanted to say that Soneando were FANTASTIC, they were really good fun and everyone loved them, they even got people up and dancing during the reception.”

“Soneando were absolutely superb. The party was a massive success, mainly due to them. My husband, Martin who's surprise 40th it was, was blown away by the music. He actually had an inkling that something was afoot but had no idea about the band. They were so professional, laid back and 'cool'(!) everyone has been asking about them. So thank you Soneando for making the party a real night to remember for years to come. I could not have asked for more.”
