We hired Ric Soul for our wedding cocktail hour. He did an AMAZING job. Our guests are still talking about it. He played smooth R & B tunes on the sax. He also sang with backing tracks. His performance was spectacular. He truly made our wildest dreams come true....

All I can say is that Eric was awesome. He kept the audience entertained. Not only could he play the saxophone , but he could sing as well. He was a one man band. The compliments I received from my guest I knew I had made the right decision. I just wished I had hired him to play for the entire event. You can't go wrong by hiring Eric!

Eric was simply amazing.. he played the sax at our cocktail hour at the Hilton Downtown Tampa last December, and every last guest was impressed with him and his talent. Everyone kept saying of how magical that evening was all thanks to him! we kept hearing good things about him even till after came back from our honeymoon. Would definitely hire him again for future events. Thank you Eric!
