“Just got back from honeymoon and wanted to immediately write to thank you and the boys for such an amazing performance at our wedding. Soul Machine really made the party happen and got everyone up dancing. We thoroughly enjoyed both of your sets and every song was a winner. All the band are so talented and even though I had seen you guys gig before I was so impressed by the whole show, you guys offer more than a gig, it's a production! I was pleased to see barney and the boys putting some of that dance training I have shown him to good use with the routines - good stuff! The wedding was full of people in the entertainment industry, so you had some pretty clued up people in the audience but every single person had nothing but praise for Soul Machine - you guys rock!! I don't know if you noticed but a lot of us girlies are dancers so they thoroughly enjoyed the boogy and I got told that Soul Machine was one of the best looking bands they have seen. Thank you once again, you really made our Special Day even better. I have had a few enquiries from friends about booking you so I have given them the website address and your number, so hopefully you will get some more gigs out of them. Thank you so much, it was just perfect.”
