'Tonnes of love and thanks to New Soul Duo from Ian and I, for providing amazing music and atmosphere at our wedding in Radium Hot Springs! These guys took care of everything and went above and beyond. They cared so much about our big day and it really showed - absolutely set the tone for the ceremony and a huge barn party! Our day just wouldn't have been the same without you guys!! All of our guests have commented on how great the music was and how much fun you guys are!! You're stuck with 2 new groupies!'

'Had a blast with you guys on the weekend at our wedding!! Couldn't have stumbled across a better band following our engagement, and making the decision to have you guys absolutely rocked our night! You set an amazing tone to the evening full of fun, excitement and upbeat music. We don't think there was a single person (130) that didn't make it to the dance floor at least once. Your selection of music was great, along with your interactions with us and the guests. Everybody loved you guys, and couldn't stop talking about how great the entertainment was. So great that all our guests were chanting for an encore after your set was finished. Thank you for travelling to red deer for us! Hopefully it won't be the last time you visit here for a show!'
