Review by Kelly M.

WeddingReviewed on September 4, 2013From Grosse Pointe, MI

With 100% certainty I can say hiring Motor City Soul for our wedding reception was the best decision we made. They went above and beyond w/everything including Ross making a special trip to see our complicated venue in person. They learned 3 special songs for us and even practiced with one of my friends who sang with the band. Our guests raved about them (and we are still receiving compliments!) saying it was "the best wedding they had ever been to." I can't say enough great things about them - They are funny, professional, very talented, and our guests literally cheered encore at the end of the reception until they played another song! Unreal! Thank you guys!! A++

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 12, 2013From Bloomfield Hills, MI

I could not more HIGHLY recommend Motor City Soul. This was the best decision we made regarding our reception. From the planning stages at the very start, they were very easy to work it and learned the song we requested for our first dance. They also surprised us at the wedding with the live version of the father-bride dance that had only just shortly before been submitted. Once the band started playing, our guests literally ran to the dance floor to enjoy their performance. From the songs, to the dance moves, to the crowd interaction, Motor City Soul was truly the best. Guests have not stopped raving about them. Thank you for a perfect night!

We really enjoyed working with Motor City Soul. They were professional, timely, friendly and most importantly great performers. Our organization would recommend the group without hesitation.
