American Events Network
Great!!! Everyone danced all night long! Called my friends to recommend the band . Many weddings coming up!! The guests said that it was a fantastic "party" even though it was a wedding. Great value!! Glen was a delight to talk to. Never had any problem getting a hold of him. I would use them again!!!
These guys are simply the best - we are so lucky to have not only hired them, but to have used them for all aspects of our wedding. They are incredibly talented, both musically and vocally, but most impressively - they were just as amazing whether playing religious music during our ceremony, jazz music for our cocktail hour, or dance music that brought the house down during the reception. Illeana was a dream to work with, and although we didn't micromanage our set-lists, we were able to craft a style of music for our evening that was simply perfect (Illeana is also an A+ performer as well!)
We've had numerous, unsolicited kudos from our guests who raved specifically about the band. If you are looking for a band that is extremely professional, capable of playing diverse genres of music for almost any occasion, and most importantly, one that is guaranteed to set your dance floor on fire - hire these folks. They are really the best - you won't be disappointed!
American Events Network and Glen Holland have successfully executed more entertainment for weddings than most people have even started to think about.
He counts Oprah Winfrey, Simon Fuller from American Idol and many celebrity weddings among his client base.
For my company his projects have involved working with A list celebrities. For my family he has provided amazing dance and 12 piece string sections for both my daughters weddings at the Bacara resort in Santa Barbara. What differentiates him is he designed and produced phenomenal entertainment themes and presentations that allowed me look like a hero to my guest, and not once asked for the credit I received. I highly recommend Glen with any project that requires the very best in integrity, entertainment, knowledge of his industry and exceeding expectations.
American Events Network is an A+ organization.

Book Soulville! This band is amazing!
We were told about AEN through a friend who had seen them at a wedding down in Arizona. We got in touch with Glen and the process was super easy. To be honest, we were a bit apprehensive about not picking our own set list. We picked out the "type" of music and songs we like, and told Ileana about any songs we did NOT want to hear, but we were told to trust the band -- they know how to get crowds going and keep them going. We took a leap of faith, and boy was it a great leap! The dance floor was packed all night and the music was terrific. The band even indulged us with an encore as the packed dance floor chanted "one more song!" It was a wonderful celebration and the band was a huge part of it. We can't thank you enough!

Glen and Ileana- We are counting our blessings and thanking GOD we found such an amazing band, and had the honor of working with both of you :) thank you again! Melissa
WOW! Words could never effectively capture the AMAZINGNESS, and JOY of the Soulville... they are beyond what our wildest hopes and dreams could have ever imagined, wanted, or dreamed of! Simply put: THEY ROCK. They really, really do. From professionalism, to getting EVERYONE on the dance floor, to the variety of songs they can play with brilliance and ease, to their amazing personalities- they are the ultimate delight to work with! We have the greatest photos of our guests on the dance floor rocking alongside Ileana, the phenomenal guitarist and Hanford (the most amazing emcee... EVER!)- the pictures are blurred and fabulous and just make you smile seeing everyone literally have the time of their lives, letting go and soaking up the music to the fullest. The band is seamless when it comes to flow. From classics to the new songs rocking on the radio today, they nailed everyone effortlessly. What I love so much also about Soulville is how easy it is to communicate and plan with Glen and Ileana, they are so willing to work with you to create the perfect party you are envisioning. They are honest and hard working, and provided for all our musical needs from the ceremony to reception. We couldn't be more thrilled to have found them and highly recommend them to any and everyone looking for a band who will give both you and your guests the time of your life!

My oh My—What a night last night!! Soulville Band made our party absolutely the BEST EVER!! All of our guests said you were the best band they have ever seen at a wedding and we agree!
We will definitely be calling you again---you were so great that this morning we were trying to cook up another party so we can ask you back again soon! John and I did not have enough cash with us last night but, as I told you, I am sending a check for each of your members to have a tip for the wonderful extra efforts you all made to make the party wonderful. Please distribute it to your group with our thanks.
Glen came into our lives at a time of great struggle in finding the perfect band to play at our Scottsdale Wedding. The process of working with Glen was a perfectly seamless experience. He was easy to work with, came through with what he promised and delivered more than we could have ever hoped for. Glen's band MADE our wedding. For groups of Italians and Russians who would ideally be difficult to please, the band blew away our expectations and put on such an amazing performance keeping every single person out of their seat and dancing the entire time.
We recommended Glen and his company to two more friends who were getting married; they hired him, and were singing their praises to us for finding him. Glen is amazing to work with...great energy, reliable, honest and an all-around great person. We highly recommend working with him to help make your wedding the most memorable night of your life.

Wow!!! Glen your band was amazing!!! I have to write a testimonial for you and please feel free to use us as a referral. We just sent a tip for the band.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,
Soulville California is the best investment we made for my daughters wedding.
I knew the right band was critical to the success of the wedding Sept. 1st and I'm so glad that the recommendation of American Events Network was spot on. They provided the best music I have ever heard at a live event. It was perfect from the ceremony, during the cocktail hour, and throughout the reception where everyone was on the dance floor the whole evening.
Before the wedding they were always available and so easy to work with. They helped us plan a timeline that assured success and guided us on music choices in addition to my daughter and her husband's playlist. They really shone at the event itself and they had to do two encores. The 9 band members, 2 vocalists, and the DJ were all superb. The wedding was an awesome event, exceeded my expectations and American Events Network was an invaluable part of it.
We cannot thank you enough for an amazing job everyone at American Events did for our wedding. People have not stopped raving about the band and how much fun they had. Truly the best I've heard and all our guests agree! They kept people on the dance floor all night and when it came time for the last song, everyone started cheering "encore!" It was like being at a rock concert!! Soulville really made the evening!!! We will definitely be in touch in the future and have already given your name to several of our 'soon to be married' friends:)
Thank you again,
All I can say is...The band is awesome and they rocked!!! From start to finish the dance floor was packed! We have not stopped receiving compliments on how amazing they sounded and the energy they gave off. They even had my 84-year-old grandmother on the dance floor.
The MC Greg controlled the party so well and brought so much energy. For the entire last 2 hours, they had everyone dancing. At the end everyone was screaming and they had to do 2 encores.
Thanks for everything and I would be more than happy to be a reference in the future. Unbelievable band.

This past Saturday evening your "Amazing Band" played at my niece's wedding at the Annandale Country Club in Pasadena.
I want to check your availability for December 15 having Soulville for our holiday party at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
You have one of the most amazing bands I have heard in years. I have been involved in music since I was 11 and I also majored in Music through school and in college. Having played all the gigs and also backed up many big R & R bands in the 60's and 70's, I know how fun it is and also how difficult it is; But yet, we still love playing and being on stage. Again, Many Many thanks.
I am also connected with a lot of event professionals and coordinators and I have to say, I only pass along recommendations when I know someone or something is the Best. You certainly are.
Again, Thanks for such an amazing night last Saturday and all the best. I'll be looking for an ad to see where you all might be playing next and hopefully in December.
We all had a wonderful time…

The Soulville band is AMAZING!!!! They made are wedding perfect. Music was a very important part to our wedding as the band sets the tone and energy in the room. They exceeded our expectations beyond what we could have ever hoped for. They have booked 3 weddings just off of our wedding.
They were my favorite vendor to work with in the planning stages and the best investment by far.
I did not step off the dance floor once we were done with dinner and the night ended too soon!!!! The band had to learn our first dance and I kept on having to look to see if the real artists were on stage. Each band member was very talented and they enjoyed the night as much as we did.
I highly recommend American Events Network. Book them!
Soulville is worth every penny! We saw them perform at a friend's wedding and they blew everyone away. We HAD TO have them for ours. We had gone to two top wedding agencies on recommendations but Soulville won us over hands down.
We secured them a year before our wedding. They learned a couple new songs for our ceremony and they really blow the crowd away!!! Greg, Hanford and Leroy’s Rat Pack is to die for!
I highly recommend them for any event where you want your guests to dance all night long!
Five stars is not enough!
American Events Network was absolutely amazing to work with.
We were on a tight budget and music was the most important thing to me for my wedding. We were in contact with other bands and booking agencies and I thought we might not be able to afford a band. We even considered a Deejay.
We had a meeting with Glen and not only did he make everything fit our budget; the eight-piece band was the best ever. From ceremony through the reception the music was perfect. Our lead vocalist was Leroy and he learned special music for our first dance and it could not have been better. He also sang “Somewhere over the Rainbow” on ukulele for the ceremony and that was Amazing!
Our entire group danced all night and still rave about how great the band was.
Thank you American Events for making my wedding magical.
I will recommend you to everyone!
HIRE AMERICAN EVENTS NETWORK!
Words are not enough for how great this band is. Wow did they deliver on making my wedding exceed expectations. Having a band for my wedding was everything to me. I checked out most of the top wedding bands in LA and Soulville came highly recommended.They had everyone dancing all night. All of my music insider friends commented this was the best band they have ever seen at a wedding, bar none. Two of our friends have hired them for their wedding from ours.My brother had a surprise song and played with the band. I was VERY worried at first but they made him look like a rock star. We had them perform 1 hour overtime and they still had to do two encores. It was just amazing!
Thanks so much for an absolutely wonderful wedding.
Soulville is the best wedding band ever!
Soulville was unbelievable! They were hands down my favorite vendor. If you are going to splurge on one thing for your wedding, I really felt that a great band that makes the wedding really fun is key!
They were so amazing and literally people are still talking today about how great they were. Greg was our MC, and there were 3 other singers. They sang everything from Frank Sinatra to Usher to Madonna! They performed music from every generation so well and were so great at evaluating what people were dancing to. People were dancing until 1:30 in the morning!
Thank you Thank you Thank you for making a special day the best ever.

Before I went to American Events I didn’t know anything about wedding bands. My coordinator Gail Garceau referred Soulville to us. After our meeting they made everything super easy and I had everything I needed to know. We used their suggestions and pacing system and our wedding exceeded all of our expectations. It was perfect. With over 250 guest, most of them in the twenties and thirties, the band was the highlight. We had a photo booth and a Karaoke bar that we didn’t need because everyone was having fun with the band. They played an-hour overtime and still had to do an encore. Fantastic! I still get compliments and my biggest memory of the reception is how great the band was. As a result of our wedding they have picked up several more bookings. Thank you American Events Network for making our wedding a huge success. I will gladly refer and use you for any future events. Sincerely,
Fred and Alyssa Hite
Dear Brides and Grooms,
Amazing! Amazing! Soulville is Awesome!! If you are looking for a wedding band and want to sleep better at night, you have to get Glen Holland and Soulville on your team. My husband and I are both in the music industry and we knew at our first meeting we were in good hands.
We were overwhelmed by the amount of wedding bands that were referred to us, along with the high cost from the top wedding agencies. (Some were 10k)
The second tip off was their promotional videos are superior to any of the others we had seen.
Third, we got to see them perform live at the Blockbuster Music Awards and were blown away.
For our special day Soulville was flawless and created an energy that exceeded our expectations.
Glen and Ileana went over details on how to create the perfect pacing with elegance and then transition into a high-energy “fun” dance atmosphere.
They performed two encores and everyone was blown away.
The dance floor was packed with our families going crazy at the end. It was like a concert while everyone screamed “more!”
The song selections, the instrumentation and the amazing vocalist, Leroy, Hanford, Ileana and Kelly made our night perfect! I highly recommend Soulvillle to every couple that is looking for a hidden gem. We were very lucky to have found Soulville.
Thank you, Glen and Ileana for making our day a very special one! We will see you again at Dustin and Amy’s wedding.
