As you may have already seen from our videos, we incorporate live instruments (sax, guitar, drums) and visuals into our curated DJ sets. People love it because it's unique, fresh and has a much more live feel than traditional DJ set ups. It's the best of both worlds, DJ & live instruments. We love music and have a blast playing together, which always gets people out of their chairs and having fun on the dance floor.
We aim to give our clients exactly what they want while bringing our own unique spin to your special event. Please refer to our reviews for a better understanding of the client experience we provide.
"Soulcirque exudes a special energy that transforms any event. They were the perfect choice for a corporate event held for over 500 meeting planners. Soulcirque knocked it out of the park with raving feedback from guests who have seen it all. They have a distinct talent for reading a room flawlessly putting their irresistible personalities into every set. Through the pre-planning process, they are extremely responsive with their heartfelt care. With Soulcirque, you're not just booking fresh entertainment. Rather, you're inviting Tim, Dustin, and Jason to your event - three guys that turn it into an unforgettable night with their collective appeal and musical prowess." - Micah I.
