We loved the variety of song selections from New Shade of Soul, and the diversity of instruments that gave their music a strong, rich sound. Band members were on time and very professional. Their music was perfect for our crowd. They helped make our company event successful. Rita Ransdell, American Airlines Center

We want you to have a good time, and we work hard to insure that result, as it's very gratifying to us to see our audience get into the music. Consequently, we do not consume alcohol, or eat at the gig. We are there to serve you, and we can wait until later to party. We strive to conduct ourselves in a professional manner, and will cooperate with you to the full extent of our abilities, to help you have an event that you're proud to have hosted.
