We loved having Soul Seasonings play for our wedding. They played quiet stuff for the cocktail hour and they were great fun during the dancing. The piano player, Tony, was amazing! He played “As Time Goes By” for my husband’s grandparents because our wedding was in the same month as their anniversary, and they really loved it. We would recommend soul seasonings band to anyone.
