Praises for SOULSTICE and ABSOLUTE ENTERTAINMENT
"Our son researched possible bands for his wedding at the Tamaya Hyatt, and Soulstice was his first choice. Alex and I divided up the calls to the bands on our list. The first few calls either went to an answering machine, or to a person who said someone else would get back to me. But when I called Soulstice, Vicky answered the phone. I felt an instant rapport with Vicky. She gave me a great deal of confidence about the quality, experience and breadth of material of the band. Having Vicky as my first contact in New Mexico was a wonderful way to start this journey. We lucked out that the band was available for one of the two possible dates for the wedding, so that helped us choose.
On the day of the wedding celebration, while I felt excited to hear the band, nothing could have prepared me for how perfect it was. From the very first second I heard them, Soulstice set the tone for an amazing spirit and energy that lasted until the party was over- including an encore which everyone in the room insisted on. The music selection was perfect, and it was exactly the range of music that Alex had asked for. Pretty much everyone in the room felt like dancing the entire time. One of my friends wrote me a beautiful note after the wedding, and she commented that it was the best energy she had ever seen on a dance floor. Another friend commented that the band was amazing and he appreciated that the volume was such that you could still carry on a conversation while everyone was dancing.
And a special shout out to Vicky for reading the room so well. When my mom went a bit off script and decided that the Challah slicing had to be done with a microphone and in the center of the room, Vicky seemed to know exactly what was coming and how to make it happen. The horah was perfectly orchestrated. I saw everyone dancing with huge energy and smiles on their faces. All in all, a huge thank you to Soulstice for helping make Alex and XinXin's wedding an epic event! Best, Janet Winter"
5.0 Star Review for the band SOULSTICE: A beautiful wedding reception at the Eldorado Hotel: "Soulstice was everything we could have asked for. Not only did they put on a great performance that our families and friends LOVED, they were also so wonderfully kind to both myself and my husband. My husband and I are from Texas and Soulstice was incredibly helpful when it came to offering us advice and helping organize our wedding. We could could not have done it without them and we are so glad we decided to go with Soulstice! If you’re thinking about hiring them for your event, stop thinking so much and just do it! You won’t regret choosing them! Thank you Chris and Vicky! Sincerely, Tony and Jennifer Ponce de Leon"
5.0 Star Review for the band SOULSTICE:
"Wow. Vicky and the whole Soulstice crew made my wedding day absolutely spectacular and went above and beyond my expectations. First, Vicky is a great emcee and was able to move the night along, corral guests to keep everything on time, match the energy of the crowd song by song, and make sure everyone was having a great time. She practically planned my reception, ensuring that the speeches and dances were timed perfectly with my seated dinner and when it came time to dance, she was able to mix songs of all different energies to make sure we had a balanced party for everyone to enjoy. The musicians were all world class. As a musician, I had high expectations for the quality of music and they did not disappoint. I can't recommend Soulstice enough and if you're looking for a phenomenal band for your wedding, stop looking now." Lauren Pacho Santa Fe La Posada Hotel
5.0 Star Review for the band SOULSTICE: "Hi Vicky – you did a terrific job taking care of the entertainment for the meeting, and especially keeping up with the time and location changes☺ It was a total pleasure to work with you! Your band Soulstice was terrific and I could not believe my eyes all the people dancing and singing and begging for “one more song” at the end of the party. You outdid yourself. Count me in as a reference any time!" Sheilah (Corporate Event)
"We were debating between band and DJ and going with Soulstice was a great decision. So talented and everyone at our wedding had so much fun! They were nice and great communicators and so organized. They made it so simple for us. We would highly recommend!" Amy & Curtis Carmony at Hotel Andaluz in Albuquerque.
5.0 Star Review for the band SOULSTICE:
"The absolute best!!!!!!
This band Soulstice 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 Vicky 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 & Brad Skuse - a Santa Fe Wedding
"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 Matthews - a Santa Fe Wedding
"From the moment we first made contact with Soulstice, Vicky and Chris were so helpful in planning the perfect ceremony. The bride and I live in Florida so communications were a vital part in our preparation and planning. Vicky and the band made it clear that we could contact them via phone or email at any hour of the day. The band even learned a few songs outside of their playlists to give the bride and me a beautiful experience, being able to celebrate and dance to some of our favorite songs. From the start of the ceremony, to the end of the night, Vicky and the band guided us through the best night of our lives. The dance floor was packed all night, and there was never a dull moment. Soulstice is definitely the best decision we made while planning our wedding, and we couldn't have asked for a better band for our special night. Thank you Soulstice!"
Dan & Jenn Peeri - Florida - Santa Fe wedding
"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 Fulton - Dallas, Texas - 3 Santa Fe weddings
"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.
Heather Dolgin & Steve Askin - New York - Santa Fe wedding
"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 Perry - Dallas, Texas -Santa Fe wedding
A wonderful wedding for Allyson Taylor and Jake Matthews in the La Posada Santa Fe ballroom.

The band was fantastic and we cannot thank you enough for your flawless MC skills and helping the event run smoothly. The special dances were all great, as well! Thank you for all of the time and energy you put into making sure it was a fun event!
Thank you! Allyson and Jake."

A fabulous Soulstice gig at La Posada for the wedding of Kelsy and Mason Abshire! The dance floor stayed packed all night from the first song to the last, the audience singing along with songs and applause - with 2 encores - the crowd shouting "One more song!" at the end. Doesn't get any better than that - our best wishes to the bride and groom.
