5.0 STARS -   Quality of service: 5.0  Responsiveness: 5.0  Value: 5.0  Flexibility:5.0 Professionalism: 5.0 "The absolute best!!!!!!  This band - Soulstice Santa Fe - does it all! Amazing performers, amazing and classic music, perfectly organized to give you peace of mind before your wedding day, massive collection of songs, and so kind and easy to work with! They are amazingly talented musicians and performers. Every single guest was dancing and when the number of dancers dwindled (cake cutting, dessert being brought out) Vickie knew exactly what to say / what song to play to have the whole crowd running back to the dance floor! Our wedding was at la Fonda and Vickie worked seamlessly with la Fonda’s spectacular event coordinator, Sammie. Hiring this band was seriously the best decision we made when planning our wedding!!!!!!!!! So much fun and truly so talented!!! ” - Danielle S

 We cannot thank Vicky and Soulstice Santa Fe enough for making our wedding absolutely amazing. Vicky was so helpful-- from the first time we contacted her to the end of the wedding-- in the planning and execution of a perfect wedding reception. The mixture of live band and DJ mix appealed to all ages and ensured that all of our guests were out on the dance floor! They graciously learned two new songs for our first dance and mother-son dance and both sounded fantastic. Vicky ran the party the whole night, so we did not have to think about a thing! We highly recommend Soulstice Santa Fe!” - Allyson & Jake M

I have hired this band three times in Santa Fe, NM for our daughters' weddings. They are incredible!!! I would not dream of having a wedding reception without them. If you want a fun, high energy band that plays all of the great songs and gets your guests up on the dance floor and makes your wedding one they will never forget this is the band for you! Everyone always comments on have much fun they had at the reception. This band is extremely professional and organized. Plus they are reasonably priced.” - Nancy

 "Soulstice was more than a band. Vicky helped us plan, organize, and provided so many ideas to make the wedding reception special. We planned the wedding long distance from Dallas and Vicky was receptive and always quick to e-mail and call back. Two sisters and I have all used them for our weddings and they've packed dance floor each time. They have a huge song selection and so many talented players. I could not recommend them enough!!! ” - Maggie & Michael

Soulstice was incredible reliable, trustworthy, and in control.  When our venue experienced a few hiccups during our wedding,  Vicky grabbed the microphone and was to the rescue,  improvising without anybody knowing.  They are the best band in Santa Fe, by far, recommended everywhere.  Vicky responded to my texts and emails in a timely fashion EVERY TIME,  and they are one of the few vendors my husband and I would absolutely recommend.  Enjoy them!!”” - Heather & Steve

They made my daughter's wedding reception the best ever on the BEST DAY EVER. Their presentation is perfection! Music is tasteful and timely. We had guest from the ages of 3 to 89 and everyone had wonderful time either listening to or dancing to Soulstice. I will never hire any other band! Having Soulstice at your party is a must."Carol Drushel Arter - Mother of the Bride.” - Carol Drushel Arter - Mother of the Bride.

  5 Star Review - Highly Recommended "Vicky and the band Soulstice were exceptional. We had so much fun planning the music with her. She was so warm and welcoming, she took all the stress out of planning the reception. She has done so many weddings that she knew where to send us for everything. I know I couldn't have planned our wedding without her. The music was so good the dance floor stayed absolutely packed until the last song. Thank you Vicky for the amazing experience!" ” - REYNA & MICHAEL
