About Total Soul

Total Soul is New York City's most exciting party band. The band performs at weddings, corporate parties, clubs, casinos, and at public concerts spanning tri-state area and country. Total Soul plays everything from Motown, to today's pop and R&B, to the Jazz/Big Band standards of the 1940's. Total Soul performs with the flair of a well-rehearsed show band, complete with front line choreography, exciting lead singers, hot horns, and a groovin' rhythm section. Total Soul ranges in size from 8-13 pieces, and is a completely live band ("live musicians" as opposed to the computerized or karaoke-type background tracks that many bands feel the need to use). The energy that you experience from a completely "live" band is unmistakable. A female singer can always be included as part of the lineup. The band always performs in formal type suits for private events.

Total Soul's music includes a mix of four part vocal harmony. Their vocal front line will mesmerize audiences with slick dance moves and smooth harmonies. Each one of the front singers will be featured as a lead vocalist. They will supercharge a crowd with their extraordinary vocal expertise. Read less

TOTAL SOUL IS THE BEST! I had the most amazing wedding and it would not have been the same without Total Soul. My guests could not stop talking about how awesome the band was and it was clear to me as no one EVER left the dance floor. At one point, early in the evening the power went out and the band made sure this did not dampen the mood. They invited everyone up and sang acapella in the dark!

In the planning process, Jeff was so friendly and kind. He provided a sound system for our ceremony and then made sure the party rocked all night long. We planned out songs I wanted to here and those I did not. He also helped me make a timeline of events for the afternoon/evening that I used with my other vendors. I cannot rave about Total Soul enough. Trust me, Total Soul is worth EVERY penny.

Total Soul was one of the best parts about our wedding. I have seen them at three other weddings prior to ours and each time they absolutely kill the performance!! They are so good and the crowd loves them. Jeff was so easy to work with and was very responsive with any emails or calls. Everything went smoothly with them. They are very reliable and worth every penny. All of our guests won't stop talking about how awesome the band was! Thank you so much to all of you. You were so much fun!

Total soul *made* our wedding! We were nervous booking a live band without having a chance to hear them live (though Total soul let us know about opportunities, we weren't able to make any because of our own busy schedule). But they were awesome. Jeff was incredibly responsive and easy to work with leading up to the wedding. The day of they were amazing! Several of my guests were professional musicians themselves, and they remarked on how tight the vocals were. Often event bands fudge the backing vocals, but Total soul had incredible intonation and close harmony. They played a great mix of current hits and classic dancing tunes. They got everyone on the dance floor and kept them there. Highly recommended!

Total Soul Party was incredible, they know how to keep everyone on the dance floor having a great time. We also had the keyboardist play our ceremony and we hand picked songs they placed perfectly.

Leading up to it I dealt with Jeff who was always quick to respond and very helpful. There is no comparison to their band in terms of value, professionalism, and overall service.

The band played everything we asked for and helped make the wedding incredible.

We both would 100% recommend this band to anyone who is getting married.

Total Soul lived up to and far exceeded any and all expectations I had! Jeff was so professional and easy to work with. The band barely took breaks; I don't remember hearing even one recorded song. Everyone at our wedding was on the dance floor the entire night. It was difficult to get everyone seated for dinner! We feel so lucky to have found total soul and have them play at our wedding. Thank you!!

Jeff and Total Soul, were fantastic for our wedding, they provided us a chance to select songs that we wanted which were not in their play list and they had clearly practiced and rehearsed them. They showed up to the wedding venue early and rehearsed so that when it came to the main event they were in full flow. They were great during dinner, and after dinner when we started dancing they pumped up the whole room so that everyone of all ages were dancing. They also mixed songs from classic hits, to some modern tunes, to the songs that we selected in a great way. We were so happy with them and would highly reocmend them to anyone and everyone.

When all your guest tell you it was the wedding they had ever been to, the best food, the best wine and the best band and the most fun they have every had a wedding you know the band had to be great. The wedding venue Gothem Bar and Grill is small we had only 100 guests but the band Total Soul knows how to not over power everyone with being too loud, the volume was always right so that everyone could enjoy it.

I found out about Total Soul by attending another wedding that had 250 people and they rocked a larger venue as well. My friends all want to book them as well.

Jon,

Thanks for the kind words. Yes, the food and hospitality was great, but most of all you could really feel the love in the room amongst all of your friends, family and guests. This was evident at the ceremony and throughout the evening.

I hope to see you again soon in the near future!

Working with Total Soul was a delight from the start. Great communication throughout the entire process and they really worked with us to make our experience exactly what we envisioned. And of course, they give a fantastic performance! We had all of our guests of all ages up on the dance floor! I cannot recommend them highly enough; hiring them as our band for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made!
