I just thought I’d let you know that we have had an amazing amount of feedback from the guests who attended our very first Jimmy’s Farm wedding. The night was amazing and the band just blew the crowd away! All of the staff have insisted that we book your guys and gal for our future barn bashes and I will of course be the recommending them to everybody. Great band, great people, great agent…..Awesome! THANK YOU!   – Eric Dunning- Events Manager, The Essex Pig Company (BBC 2 series ‘Jimmy’s Farm’)

I would be really grateful if you could pass on my thanks to SOULFIRE for being absolutely amazing at our wedding. I can honestly say they are the best live function band I’ve ever heard. Their versions of Hava Nagila and Simon Tov were brilliant and got everyone on the dancefloor – where we all stayed all night until they played the last note! They were fun, professional and just a fantastic band all round. They were definitely the best part of the wedding reception and both during the evening and since then, our guests have commented about how great they were and how they made the evening. I’ve already recommended them to loads of friends and I look forward to hearing them play again soon. Kind regards, Kira.  – Kira Gilbert (Great Fosters, Egham, Surrey Wedding)

Thank you so much to Atrium for providing such an excellent band to play at our wedding ceremony and reception on 12th June. All aspects of your service have exceeded any expectations we may have had. From your prompt response to our requests/queries through to the follow up on your service, both yourself and the band have already been deeply recommended to our family and friends. My only regret is that we hadn’t booked the band for a longer period of time, as we didn’t want their music to end (I found myself singing along to most of the songs)! Everyone who attended the day has commented, not only on the quality of music but also their friendly disposition. I have a photo of my cousin proudly holding the saxophone, not something I would expect most bands to allow. I’ll be looking out for their next gig! Thanks once again for all your assistance in our Big Day.  – Mrs. Michelle Everitt (Cottons Hotel and Spa Wedding)

We want to thank Richard for the lovely music he played for our Wedding service, and also the Band at the night time reception, a lot of the guests have since asked about yourselves and said it was such a good atmosphere, they have never been to a wedding like it!  – Mr and Mrs. R. Hopkins (De Vere Daresbury Hotel Wedding)

An outstanding Guitarist and performer  – LIPA (Paul McCartney School- said of guitarist Richard)

My wedding was on Saturday 24th July and Soulfire performed at my night ‘do’, can I just say how excellent they were. They arrived without any fuss at all and got straight into the set which had me up dancing straight away! All the other guests followed and I was bombarded by many of the guests telling me how fantastic the band was. Thanks for making my wedding a memorable one…. they will come highly recommended.  – Collette Corcoran (Dalston Hall Wedding)

Please could you pass on all our thanks to Richard for his performance at our wedding on Sat 23rd October at Hoole Hall. The day was fantastic, the ceremony was made all that more special with the music, and everyone commented how lovely it was. Once again, we would like to say thanks to Richard, we are sorry we didn’t get chance to thank him properly in person on the day, the day went so quick, but we have it all on video and hearing the tune again as we walk down the aisle, will always bring a tear to the eye. It was perfect. Thank you & best wishes.  – Louise & Duncan Templeton (Hoole Hall Wedding -solo guitar at ceremony)

Just a few lines to say a BIG thank you for making our wedding reception on 5th Sept so memorable. The band were out of this world and all the guests were totally impressed and thoroughly enjoyed dancing to all the hits. They were so professional and the skill of the muscians was incredible. They absolutely made our day, so thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts.  – Laura & Stuart Hunter (Ston Easton Park Hotel Wedding)

Please pass on our sincerest thanks and best wishes to the members of Soulfire who played at our wedding on Sunday 9th in my parent’s garden. They were absolutely fantastic – so much energy and personality. Each one an incredible musician and entertainer. The dance floor was full all night – and they even had my 80 year old uncle out there dancing! Richard was so good with my 9 year old nephew who joined the band to play ‘Sunshine of Your Love’ which brought the house down and must have been a highlight of his life! The whole night was so perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a better band. So a huge thank you to you for your help and professionalism throughout the planning process and a huge thank you to the band for just being so cool! Best wishes.  – Naomi & Harry (Hampshire Wedding)

Please can you let Richard and the band know that we and everyone at our wedding thought they were awesome!!! We were totally taken aback at just how good they were. After speaking with Richard on the night I would also like to say he is a lovely chap! We will be recommending them to everyone!! Thanks   – Mark Donnelly

Hi Richard, I am sorry that this message is a bit late but things have been a little hectic here this week. I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation to you and the other members of the band for a superb performance in Watford last Friday. We were all impressed by your musicianship and your repertoire. We liked your flexibility and co-operative approach to the somewhat erratic arrangements during the course of the evening. All our guests commented on how good you were and how sympathetic you were to the needs of the audience. I shall certainly pass on your details to friends planning a similar event. Many thanks and my best wishes for the future. Regards, Dennis  – Dennis & Jean Murphy (West Herts Sports & Social Club Booking)

Hi Richard, apologies that its taken me such a long time to get back to you, we just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks so much for your performance at our wedding in Appletreewick on 17th October. We thought you were brilliant, as did many of our guests, judging by all the positive comments we got afterwards. The set you played was great for getting everyone up dancing. The band were the icing on the cake of a perfect day, so thanks again.  – Petra & James Smith

Anna and I would just like to say thank you for helping to make our day so special. Both the live sets and the DJ sets were exceptional, we had people coming up to us all evening complementing the band and people are still saying how good the music and musicianship was even now, a month later! We wish you all the best for the future and will not hesitate to recommend you at any and every opportunity.  – Spencer & Anna Round (Redhouse Barn Wedding)

I would be very grateful if you pass on our thanks to Richard and the rest of the band who played at our wedding on 26th June. We knew we were in for a treat when we arrived at the venue and Richard was playing solo guitar to entertain our guests during a drinks reception – absolutely incredible – a serious talent. Then for the evening reception – we always wanted our guests to be wanting more when the evening came to an end and that’s exactly what happened. The battle of the band between the guitar at the sax was out of this world. Thanks to all for helping make our day so special.  – Richard & Lucy Taylor
